Friend from Scotland visiting tomorrow, leading to a reunion of (Scottish) people in London. Let me think of a few keywords…. Friday night, Old Street/Hoxton Square, Bank holiday weekend, Drinks, Last (or first) train home Somehow I think a headache on Saturday morning, then back into London again on Saturday to repeat it all….

Saw this and it made me laugh… Of course ketchup and mustard isn’t really a Cambridge thing, but maybe I should take my own along ?

Sometimes you have a perceived image of what someone should look like. For example, ask most people what ‘Jesus’ looks like and they’d paint a picture of a tall bearded man weather cloth.

However, I’ve finally found a good place for cakes. Of course it’s a chain (that’s standard for anything involving food in Cambridge), but it is [...]

Working in the tech sector I always get depressed at how cheap things become. Well, at least I no longer kid myself with the justification to buy something as “well, it can’t get any cheaper”. I had this in my inbox this morning: Yes, 2TBs of storage for less than £100 ! The depressing part [...]
