A few weeks back a couple of friends of ours (Grace and Steve) were walking home from Islington way and they passed King Boris as he walked past The York pub just on Upper Street. This excited me and James no end as we’re avid fans of the wonderful Mayor of London, Mr Boris Johnson.
This afternoon we went for a lovely stroll along the canal to get some more festive decorations to finish off our festive house… and who did we see? No other than Boris himself, in the flesh! AMAZING. Not only did we see him, but he nodded, yes he ACTUALLY nodded and smiled at us. This is the definition of making someones year! So what was the first thing we did as he passed? We tweeted of course… then we got home to see this…
ACTUALLY beyond excited! I love Boris, long may he hail – infact, BORIS JOHNSON FOR PRIME MINISTER! Imagine the joy he would bring to everyones day if he were Prime Minister. IMMENSE. But yeah, if you read this Mr Boris, you are welcome to our festive house at any time of the year for a cuppa.
What a good day indeed!
We’ve just got in from a lovely bicycle ride along the canal to Camden and back. We had an amazing picnic courtesy of Marks and Spencers in Regents Park and a Iced Latte a la Starbucks. Thanks! Had a crazily busy week this past week, lots to report on which I will indeed do so in due course!
So as aforementioned, work has been super busy! And I think this week will be even busier! Especially as its Bank Holiday Monday today, so we only have a 4 day week! Excellent! Loving work though, lots to do and it’s all very varied which keeps me very quiet… hah.
It’s been Notting Hill Carnival this weekend, we stayed away from it this year after getting lost in the crowds and high rise flats last year! Oh and the small matter of a dodgy stomach for 3 days straight after very dodgy Jerk Chicken! Sad times!
So expect several blog posts this evening as I’m having a proper catch up! Also, keep an eye out for my eBay posts, got 2 1/2 bin bags of brand new/nearly new clothes, shoes and accessories!

Terribly sorry to announce…we’ve moved house, again! So no internet for about 3 weeks! Rubbish! I’ll do what I can inbetween the lack of web and unpacking!
I will indeed be posting photos of said new house as we think it’s our best yet! 😀 We love it, and we love Angel Islington!
This is the view of Regents Canal from our living room window!
It literally takes 25 minutes to get to work for me, and about 8 minutes for James to cycle to work! Amazing! No more horrible commute, thanks TFL for nothing!
