Hmm, I’ve been quiet on here  but that’s because I’ve been very busy elsewhere. Too busy to reflect and review my offline life, online. What have I been up to? Well to bring you up to speed………….

After the Bungee…..

I went to new restaurant Ox & Finch, the week it opened. All beards, piercings and chalkboard menus. Food was nice in small tapas size portions, beer (Redchurch Bethnal Pale Ale) was a bit pricey too!

Caravan, finally got round to seeing these, now ageing, proggers, and they didn’t disappoint.

Cirque de Soleil’s Dralion at The Hydro, actually saw Rhu and I laughing aloud in delight at what they were doing with trampolines (ooh er missus!)
