New sights to see

January will see the start of month 8 in my move to the capital (although Im not counting down yet as so loving my holiday time at home) Although Ive seen, explored, experienced, created and taken part in many many exciting things our wonderful city has to offer, I have only touched upon snippets of the London Life (and yes I know I started an A-Z which will continue as my explorations do) heres a few on top of my list (without photos as they will obviosuly follow when I visit :)

1. Viewing the city from primrose hill
2. Cycling down the embankment on a Borris Bike
3. FINALLY exploring Broadway Market and the wonders of the East that Ive somehow missed (its on my doorstep)
4. Hunting the Charity shops on the Kings Road (I will find a bargain Chanel)
5. Cocktails and evening entertainment in Circus...Covent garden
6. Motivating myself to start running again...what a perfect way to see the lovely parks
7. Trying the number of unique Tapas bars scattered around the city
8. Attempt to get tickets to view London from the height of the Shard.

I wont bore you with the remaining 101 must sees I HAVE to do....busy year ahead for me

D is for display (as in fireworks)

Forget Halloween, for me this week has been all about bonfire night, especially when the weather is as autumny as it was yesterday. Ok so I know it wasn't 'officially' guy fawkes night but last night saw Battersea Park put on their annual bonfire and firework display show, lazers, synchronised music, food ranging from the classic hot dog to noodles and hog roasts, glow sticks, layers and layers of fallen leaves on the ground, hand numbing coldness, hats, scarves, thick winter coats and crowds upon crowds of people pushing to get a taster of the heat coming off the bonfire, trawling the gates, strolling down chelsea embankment and over chelsea bridge culminating in a spectacular show to the sounds of 'London's calling' "LDN' "Price tag' and 'Perfect day'
