Belgium Grand Prix

La Source hair pin

Spent four and a bit days bumbling around the Ardennes Forest watching some pretty amazing motor sport.YES Lewis did win fair and square!

Shared a hotel (come shop, see pics) with the Ferrari VIP hospitailty team (manily Scottish) eat too many waffles, drank just about enough beer, without being greedy and avoided most of the Germans. -included those who brought along a hot tub on the back of a lorry! picture story HERE.

Stansted Airports (unoffical) pets zone

786072-1150520-thumbnail.jpgI always said airports need to think a bit more laterally about entertaining passengers - who needs BA's Molton Brown SPA and Virgin Club House's when you can play with the bunnies at Stansted! The walk to the Raddisson Hotel now features a whole bunch of very tame rabbits.

A lunchtime affair

How weird is this? The Fish has just started her new college course at Central St Martins. Twice a week i now get to have lunch with the misses as we are but a few doors apart on Southampton Row. She commented yesterday that the whole thing felt really odd seeing each other during the day '..almost as if we are having an affair!..'  Or rather a sad comment on today's working week that we only normally see each other during the hours of darkness. mapfish.jpg

No head for heights

jake_net.jpg

Spent last Saturday up a tree after after foolishly agreeing to take part in a Go Ape course. The idea is simple, after a short training talk you clip yourself into a harness and safety line and go bombing around the tree tops. Extremely narrow platforms and aerial walkways are interspersed by epic zip wires strung across a steep sided valley. Fun? well only when it finished. I can quite truthfully say it scared the bejesues out of me while i did it. The fact Alice and Jake were happily skipping ahead of me ment I didn't have the option to bottle it. Looking back it was an amazing experience. -just terrifying while i was doing it. The Go Ape brand was set up by Tristram and Rebecca Mayhew in 2001. Its a great business idea working in partnership with the Forestry Commission to get us city dwellers into the great outdoors. Currently running at 7 locations in the UK and turning over 6m this year, it's a classic 'why didn't I think of that idea' team_climb.jpg

The passenger

bug.jpgHad an interesting passenger on my way to work today. Large green grasshopper thing that managed to cling on all the way from Clapham Common to Russell Square. Not sure if he needs a lift back tonight.

Kids growing up

 786072-897816-thumbnail.jpg786072-897814-thumbnail.jpg wow, blink of an eye and suddenly J & A appear sooo grown up. What happened? These two pictures really brought it home to me quite how old they were looking. Less small child and more moody teenager. mmmm, Alice is pictured with one of the band Hadouken! on Brighton beach - après a very hot sweaty set in Concorde2. (I was there as escort) Jake is seen after having discovered Topman.
