Happy Sunday! I hope you’ve all had a great weekend so far. Last night I went out for the first time in months, just for an early dinner in Shoreditch, practically next to the station, but it was nice to see glimpses of old London. That’s definitely what I’ve missed the most. I also got to go on the tube – a nice new(ish) Metropolitan train. I think I’m more of a train geek than I realised.
What are your plans for today? If you’re quick, get down to 19 Princelet Street today (just off Brick Lane). It’s a rare opportunity to see a 1719 Huguenot merchant’s house that became a hub for different religious communities. We went last year and although you’ll have to queue I can’t recommend it enough!
Finally, happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s out there, especially mine. He’s always amazing but I couldn’t have got through the last few months without him! He’s made me the best fish finger sandwiches, taken me out for coffee and taken me to hospital appointments and physio sessions. Best of all, when traditional painkillers failed to help he gave me Reiki and took my pain away.
Now here’s a selection of what I’ve been reading this week:
The Onion doing what The Onion does best with their spoof Buzzfeed site.
Photos from inside the Thames Tunnel.
A tour of London – in song.
Some good news – ‘anti-homeless’ spikes have been removed.
Going underground during a World Cup match? TfL and ESPNFC will keep you posted.
Have a great day, Carla
