Just add sugar..

After the football yesterday we found ourselves wandering around Bromley without a purpose, it was a really nice day so we decided that we would head to Shoreditch for the afternoon. We had left it late but it wasn't the end of the world as we figured we would hit some bars, sample some food and just get in the mood. Arrived in quick time and then drove about for ages looking for a parking space. After finding one I needed change so I ventured into a local corner shop. The cost of the parking was £4 an hour but in talking to the shopkeeper he gave us a ticket for £5 for the whole afternoon. Result!

Anyway we walked around Brick Lane for a while checking out the shops and I listened as my Girl's wish list of clothing seemed to quadruple by the minute. It was all good fun and needing something to justify our shop we picked up some earrings and walked into the main food area. I must have not looked too good for the day as straight away I was approached by a guy wanting some Ketamine. Charming that this is how I come across with a first impression, I bored the Gentleman off and then walked on. Eventually we ended up in 93 East and it was going off in here! The music was in the style of Crystal Castles and These New Puritans and the crowd were loving it. We rocked out as well getting into it but where I was driving I couldn't really have a drink so eventually we moved on.

After walking around we bumped into Ross who was in Project Catwalk, and saw a fella from GMTV and his partner. My Girl got really starstruck here and I had to try my hardest to calm her down as she was like a rocket had gone off. We trecked to Hoxton but it wasn't really alive so we came home. Today has been a peaceful day really, baby returned to us, watched the Grand Prix and we went to a Garden Centre. Here we made a school boy mistake and gave baby some Fudge. Whatever was in this really set her off and she has been on one today, kind of reminded me of the movie with the cheeky child who just couldn't resist being naughty. Answers on a postcard if you know what movie I am referring to...
