Five weeks ago I moved back to London full time for the first time since the summer when I worked at the Olympics. It’s been exciting to be living in a brand new part of the city (I’m southwest this time in East Sheen, near Richmond) and I’ve just about got past the ‘Holy what?!‘ moment of seeing just how much more expensive London is to live in than my previous home in Glasgow.
I’ve been out and about in London a fair bit, picking up temp events work all over the city before starting a role at the Rugby World Cup in January. Here’s a selection of pics I’ve taken so far:
Jodes in the woods by Richmond Park where we live
The brilliant Lady Antebellum at the O2 Brooklyn Bowl
Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, where I’ll be working some shifts this Autumn
The Thames at Fulham, near where we live
Fireworks at the Hurlingham Club, Fulham
More firework fun
The O2 from the Emirates Airline Cable Car
The cable car was new for 2012
I attended my first World Travel Market this year
The view from the cable car at night was spectacular on Bonfire Night – spot the fireworks!
The seats at Wembley were transformed into poppies for the second NFL game I attended
After seeing the Detroit Lions thrillingly defeat the Atlanta Falcons in the final minute, I was lucky enough to also go to the Cowboys-Jags game
Great post reminding me of many of the reasons why I love London! I saw Lady Antebellum at Hyde Park a few years ago – they’re just fabulous and I had no idea they were performing at Brooklyn Bowl or I’d have definitely tried to go – it’s the right side of London for me too! Must have been a good show!
It was! Was that with Bruce Springsteen in Hyde Park? If so I was at that one too 🙂
