michelin house – 81 fulham road
a little while back i showed you the doors of the houses on some of my favourite streets of london town. if you missed that post you can see it just here. you see i know the streets of east end of london very well, as my father grew up in the neighbour hood and all of his side of the family all lived in the area too. when we first moved to england we too lived in the east end and a lot of my fist memories of england are from adventures around that part of town.
there are a couple of places that really stand out for me, and one of these are streets between brick lane and spitalfileds market.
this is me
this is my forty-year old face
we had spent the earlier part of our day pottering in and around the barbican. but after standing in one too many queues, for far too long, we decided to retreat and head east for a walk amongst the streets of shoreditch, followed by some delicious lunch and some ping-pong action at shoreditch house. below you will see some wonderful street art that we took in along our way, on our saturday shoreditch stroll. stunning as always, these artists are so damn clever. i really want to have a go!

when i started this little ‘ol blog of mine, i didn’t really know what to do or why i was doing it. i was inspired to do something that’s for sure and i just let things take their course, until i found what my groove might or might not be, but most importantly what i was really comfortable with and made me happy.
well some of them…
this morning i left home, dropped ronnie at breakfast club and headed into work. pretty normal day so far. then about ten minutes down the road the traffic started to slow and slow and then it just stopped. for the next two hours i sat in traffic. just sat there, no moving to be had, nope not an inch. burst water main apparently. for a whole 45 minutes i sat in my car, engine off catching up on work emails. this church was my view.
i’m afraid folks, this rain is all my fault. i dared to think that spring was on its way. i thought this thought only for a split moment. i spied some crocus tips come through the lawn, they made me smile and the thought of the days getting longer and warmer entered my mind.
so then it rained
sorry my bad
i bought some white tulips to recover from the cold dreary rain

half term and what to do? well luckily for us we are very close to london town, just a hop skip and a jump. yes i know we live in london, i know, but for some reason it doesn’t really feel too much like “living in london” where we are, so we get the best of both worlds and therefore going into london always feels just like that, going into london!
