A little project which involves taking a photo every day for a yet to be determined period of time.

Gig time - Steel Panther!  A tongue in cheek 80s hair metal band, most of their songs are about girls, sex, sex with girls and sexy girls.  It’s a complete stage act but they are also cracking musicians and very very funny.

Time for another nice walk, and today a colleague and I headed down to St. Katherine Docks, a lovely place hidden away behind Tower Bridge and some office blocks.  We didn’t realise that there’s a food market every Friday here so we tucked into some delicious paella whilst taking in the sun and people watching.  We also checked out some of the nice looking yachts that were moored up.  One day i’ll have one of those.

Tonight was a joint birthday celebration for 3 or 4 old colleagues of mine, and they decided to have drinks in a new bar called Babble City.  It’s over three floors and each one is slightly different.  We spent the night in the dark and dingey one with the loud music and low ceiling.  Sadly it was one of those nights that never really got going, so a few of us decided to head early and go to Pizza Express instead.  Maybe we’re getting old but we had more fun in the restaurant than in the previous 2 hours in the bar.

I went home this weekend and found this box of strawberries in the kitchen.  I love strawberries, they’re one of my favourite fruits (after apples and grapes) but I get slightly suspicious when I see one this big.  This can’t be natural, can it?  It tasted good but I couldn’t help but wonder how many chemicals and fertilisers i’d just eaten along with it.

Back at White Hart Lane for the replay of the FA Cup match that was stopped due to Fabrice Muamba’s illness.  We won 3-1 but it felt like a bit of a hollow victory.  Thankfully Muamba is doing ok.

I didn’t like the way this chocolate easter bunny was looking at me, so I ate half his face and both his ears.

Golf is my favourite sport to play in the whole world, but sadly living in London I rarely get to give it a go.  This weekend however I decided to head home and play with my Dad and old golfing buddies.  It was a thoroughly enjoyable day, I didn’t play to my best but just getting out onto the course and getting some fresh air was a nice change from the norm.  It’s days like this that make me really love the sport, but a couple of bad rounds and i’ll get fed up with it again.  Definitely a love/hate relationship going on.  This is the second hold at Aldwickbury Park Golf Club, my home course.  I’ve been a member since 1996 and i’m still not bored of the place.

Another nice day, another nice walk.  This time I was headed to Stamford Bridge to watch Spurs take on Chelsea with some colleagues and I decided to walk from Hoxton.  It took a few hours but was well worth the effort and I saw parts of London I never knew existed.  After the game we popped to a pub, I stayed on the waters and got the tube back home.  A good day all round (the result was 0-0).

The glorious weather is still here so it was a good excuse for another lunch time stroll.  We headed down to Tower Bridge and walked along the North Bank before getting to London Bridge, admiring the views along the way.  There’s something about London in good weather that makes it a pretty special place, I don’t think i’ll ever get bored of it.

11 days on and still no gas.  Good job the weather has picked up a bit, but having no hot water or a cooker is jolly frustrating.  I’ve been hitting the gym every morning before work so thankfully I can shower there, but dinner in the evenings is becoming a bit of a pain.  There’s only so much one can do with a microwave, and takeaways are expensive.  Sort it out National Grid, you bunch of chumps.
