June 10, 2006
Well, that's my first week free of exam/work worries for a long time! I'm glad the weather's been nice (not chucking it down like it did as soon as I'd finished my A–Levels!), and I've had a really nice chilling out week, which I was probably in need of (and have been for quite some time now, methinks!).
Anyway, been off on a few spontaneous jaunts this week, such as Birmingham and Milton Keynes (on the grounds I've not been to the latter before), and just today went to London with John.
We had a really nice day, starting off with a trip on the London Eye (which I never realised was quite as high as it is – with an excellent view thanks to the clear weather. I even called my Mum from the very top!). Then after that (and a drink, as the capsules were like mini greenhouses!) we continued to the Tower of London and walked across Tower Bridge, then along the Thames to the Millennium Bridge (we couldn't not after the Differential Equations worksheet question about it!). Then we went over to the Diana memorial in Hyde Park, where we sat and refreshed our feet in the lovely cold water, before continuing over to Marble Arch and down Oxford Street, stopping in a few shops along the way, including the HMV where Feeder played, and the Topshop featured on the Apprentice! After this we headed back to Victoria to have some tea (I had a Subway Melt with 'double meat' – which is ALOT of meat!), then get the bus back. Anyway, when I get the photos from John, I'll upload them to my Fotopic site. It was absolutely sweltering in London though, and any excuse for shade/refreshment was taken!
Also, on Thursday evening, I had a very pleasant game of Go with Nikki on the grass behind Claycroft 2 (in a nice shaded area). Apparently I'm getting better, although I've still yet to beat her (although I'm determined that I will do it one day!). Nevertheless, playing Go on a proper board with proper stones outside in the summer time beats attempting to play it on a scrap of paper in a Mechanics lecture as we originally did!
Anyway, I'm knackared after todays expedition, so I may go to bed fairly soon.
Bye for now!
