How old are your kids?

If you’re heading Greenwich/Docklands way then The Museum Of Docklands has a new Crossrail exhibition opening today (it’s also a damn good museum in its own right):

Plus the NOW Gallery has a lovely installation piece in at the moment:

Cable car is a good trip with kids, plus on the north side The Crystal is worth visiting:

Aside from the cable car, ^these are all free too natch…

Morning all. Last day at work before a week off and a trip to Copenhagen on Sunday for my wife’s 30th! So far I’ve bought her a Stone Cold Steve Austin Broken Skull Ranch t-shirt. She’s a lucky lady!


#26

Only one cat waiting to come in this morning, will hopefully see the other one when I check in tonight. Don’t want to lose someone else’s cat…

Should be an easy day today. My belt broke when I was putting it on this morning so I need to find a new one at lunch, but apart from that I’ll mostly be listening to music and doing fuck all. And getting paid for it.

Playing a gig for some freemasons tomorrow in Kettering so I’ve got a rehearsal for that tonight. In Kettering. Sigh.


#27

Nice. I think it should be a good one - the Oxford fans will make a stack of noise but there are going to be 40k Coventry fans too…

We battered Cov 4-1 in the last fixture too so that is a good thing (though they beat us 2-1 earlier in the season as well…)


#28

Hello everyone

The lads have invited me to Sheffield tonight for a few drinks to celebrate me moving over the other side of the office (The Dark Side as it’s referred to by the idiots I currently work with). Then I’ll probably get back to Derby and do some disco dancing or something in a crap pub.

Tomorrow I’ll probably be nursing a hangover but will get a few boxes and that and start chucking stuff in them.

Sunday I’ll properly start sorting everything out, which I’m quite looking forward to.


#29

I’ve got a call with a recruiter later about a job that appears to have something to do with F1. Given the overlap between my skill set and that industry, I reckon that Lewis Hamilton has had enough and they need me to fill in.


#30

Guy I haven’t hung out with in ages wants to go to some house DJ tonight. I know if I go, I won’t sleep till Sunday and didn’t really want to have a mad one this weekend. Do want to hang out with him though. hmmm


#31

Morning everyone.

I’ve somehow ended up with a weekend of gigs all sandwiching the longest run of my marathon training.

Tonight: William + Yr Poetry + Point Scoring
Tomorrow: 22mile run and then Run The Jewels
Sunday: Pet Shop Boys + Jonny Marr

Might take Monday off to recover…


#32

Saw my ATD and his TV last night for a quick dinner to break up my drive back from Leeds.
Stuck on all three Everything Everything albums for the drive and had lost my voice singing along by the time I got back :slight_smile:
Properly tired today. Will go for a much needed climb later, then have a pretty lazy weekend lined up.


#33

They’re 7 (8 on Sunday) and 4. Those both look like good suggestions! The eldest loves trains so that might be quite interesting.


#34

I back from Spain tomorrow, so I am going chill on Saturday night and then Sunday is FOOTBALL DAY :raised_hands:

  • Need to find an illegal stream for the Checkatrade Trophy final (:yellow_heart: :blue_heart:)
  • Then it’s the Allsvenskan premier and I am watching IFK Norrköping with my boss
  • In the evening it is the Fla-Flu in Rio so I will be watching that with a Brasilian.

Then Monday is my first live match in Stockholm, I’m watching Djugärden’s first game of the season with some colleagues. Then I will pass out somewhere, most likely.


#35

The urban farms will be in lambing season too, but I guess that you can see loads of that where you are.

Mudchute is probably the easiest to get to if you’re going to Docklands.


#36

weird - I watched half of “Some Kind Of Monster” last night

Can’t believe

a) how old it is now
b) Metallica are still going

It is still v. funny


#37

Oh fuck I’ve just remembered I’m doing Clifford the Big Red Slide tomorrow at the Olympic Park :fearful:


#38

Yeah, we have quite a few of those round our way.


#39

c) how completely unsympathetic a human being Lars Ulrich is, even after all these years


#40

Hetfield is currently winning the prize for “biggest tool” for me.

But I’ve got another hour to watch
