{August 31, 2010}   aargh, has August gone already?

So tomorrow is the first day of September and I can’t believe how quick August has gone! It feels like i’ve had quite a bust month but don’t really have anything to show for it.

I took a random day off and caught the train to London with a friend. Under £7 return in the London Midland summer sale – not to be sniffed at. We spent the morning at the Science Museum which was interesting, however we probably would have enjoyed it more if we had small people with us. We did Chinatown,choosing to eat at a restaurant called Lido on Gerard Street which had a lunchtime set menu for  £8 a person which included Crispy Duck. The food was good, not amazing but there were certainly no complaints. We thought the price was very reasonable considering we were in the centre of London.

Later in the day we took a walk along the Southbank were several street entertainers entertaining the tourists in the sun. Here’s a picture of the “missing head people” causing people to stop and stare.

I’ve also decided that enough is enough and I need to start looking after my health a little bit more, so i have started to join some mates in going swimming a few times a week. I am an okay swimmer but not a strong swimmer. I can only really do breaststroke and when i first started going a small amount of backstroke – i had never quite got it together to hook up more than a few strokes. What can i say, the first time i joined them i struggled, i spent most of time “resting” at one end of the pool. However a difference and improvement in speed and the length of time between breaks was soon noticeable.
