ice ice baby

Posted by claire on Friday, December 19th, 2008

We went ice skating yesterday at Canary Wharf, and WOW what fun! I had a great time, so good in fact I think I will make an effort seek out an ice rink near me. At some point I might fulfil my childhood fantasy of having the lovely white lace-up boots like the professionals.

The Seventeen team outing is looming – we’re off to the Canary Wharf ice rink tonight to trip the light fantastic and fall flat on our backsides. Hopefully our injuries will not prevent us enjoying a few glasses of mulled wine in the Moose Bar afterwards.
We will be in the office until Tuesday getting [...]

Happy memories

Out here at Trinity Buoy Wharf we shall be [...]

Will I never learn…

Will I never learn that leaving my Christmas shopping until the second week of December will only result in a stressful weekend and inappropriate gifts?
This Saturday I met some friends, (not from London I might add) on Oxford Street for some live music and a little Christmas shopping. Despite being pedestrianised Oxford circus could only [...]

Under the Thatch

Posted by joelle on Thursday, December 4th, 2008

I recently escaped the urban bustle of the city to spend a cosy weekend in a ‘Loveshack‘ log cabin in Wales and enjoyed:
- digging the groovy 1970s decor
- a wash and spin dry experience of horizontal rain and wind on a walk along the coast, blowing all those cobwebs away
- being befriended by a whole [...]
