On Saturday morning I met up with a friend and some randoms for our not-so-regular brunch club. Anyone and everyone is welcome and this time we had 5 people. After brunch, Rachel – who had come down from Cambridge for the weekend – said she was headed to the Cheese and Wine Festival in the East Village. Cushla and I quickly jumped on that idea and invited ourselves along because, well, CHEESE!
With some free time on my hands today, I took the advice from one of the girls from the Facebook group London Bloggers and ventured down to South Kensington to explore the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Because I’m an awesome girlfriend, for Christmas I bought my boyfriend tickets for the Arsenal Legends Tour. After much research (asking his friend – who is also a ‘gooner’ (Arsenal fan) which legend is better, the Perry Groves Legend Tour was booked.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
William Ernest Henley
Last year Prince Harry visited Colorado for the Warrior Games. The Games gave him the idea to bring a similar idea to London and the Invictus Games were born.
On Thursday I caught up with my Australian mate Nathan.
Today I finally ventured into the world of London markets.
Camden Markets are huge! The Adelaide Central Market ain’t got nothin’ on this baby!
One of the most important dates in world history is 11 November.
At the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month the official ceasefire of the First World War was declared.
The day is known by different names throughout the world – Veterans Day in America, Armistice Day in France, Belgium and New Zealand, and Remembrance Day in most Commonwealth countries.
