I am always amazed by the fact that no matter how many times I visit the same space, it's always possible to discover new facts, seemingly for the first time! There was a great exhibition of photographs by Nick Hedges about homelessness, proper documentary photographs. We spent the whole day at the Science Museum before heading across Hyde Park for a tour of the lights along Oxford Street, Regent Street and Covent Garden.
Late afternoon we paid a visit to Spuntino to give cousin Frank a surprise in Soho, which the kids thought was great fun. Popcorn and beer...
All followed by supper when we got back to South Kensington at Franco Manca, which was first class....

All manner of interesting facts like the chain was invented for the bike, not any other purpose but the bike. It's still made by the original company in Manchester who invented it.... called Renold.
Anyone who knows me will probably recognise the colour of the object of his ultimate happiness - how similar a paint job to my Freddie Grubb Galibier that my Dad bought for me way back?
And Lance you f•kin idiot, yes you did get it wrong. It's all about the bike. Never forget it.

Not just one bloody hat but two this year, so I am sharing one with Miranda!! And we are wearing it indoors so I definitely won't feel the benefit when I go out....

Lewi had one of these looks this morning after telling me he'd made a bit of a lash up of his English Literature paper yesterday, tomorrow he has a Physics paper, and Thursday a Chemistry paper. Just keep doing your best Tiger...

Miranda in fact talking to Gran, whilst I capture the mood...
Just made myself some delicious pancakes and listened to the Stranglers playing Ugly, damn that puts me in a good mood.

How cool is it to be learning from Kate Macgregor and Dave Evans both of whom will be representing UK at Rio in 2016? #olympicsquad
A lovely sunny day too to observe the chalk hills around Weymouth
