London Happenings


Rain, Southbank at night, teeny tiny kite flying, pirate instructions, before the big day and a lot of Charlies.

Windows of Bristol

My favourite thing about Bristol was all the lovely windows.

The Dogs

On Saturday we went to watch the greyhound racing at Wimbledon Stadium. It was like being in a Blur photo shoot, everything looked exactly as I had imagined from the colours of the stadium to the crowd of people gathered and when the sun went down it looked even better - surely all greyhound racing should take place at night, preferably wrapped up in a scarf on a cold evening. We had a blast and the evening just flew by. Astonishingly we even won back all of our money.

The Museum of Broken Relationships

I visited the Museum of Broken Relationships last week, an exhibition of items that are left over at the end of a failed relationship and eventually given to the museum with a short description as to why the owner had held on to it and why now they were ready to donate it.

It makes for a strange collection of assorted inanimate objects that have been given a meaning and value beyond their purpose. At times sad or angry, amusing or hopeful it's overall poignantly nostaglic and well worth the visit.

It has found a temporary home scattered around various locations in Seven Dials and closes this weekend.

Leakey's Bookshop

If there was only one reason to visit Inverness, Leakey's would be it.
