Went to West Ham with Fi and Grae. Weather was very nice, even if the game and the result weren't that good. West Ham even managed to miss a penalty which you can see at the bottom in its full widescreen HD glory!
A sad day today, Siv and I are travelling to Ely for our friend Simon's funeral. He died of leukaemia on March 25th, only in his early 40's, leaving behnd his 2 young daughters.
After a very nice Humanist service at Cambridge Crematorium, which was quite sad (though cheered up by some good music played during the ceremony, including Abba's 'Dancing Queen' for Simon's arrival), we all went back to The Cutter Inn, which is where Simon would probably want people to reminisce about him. Scarlett (left) and Francesca (right) were able to cheer everyone up with their naturally bubbly personalities.
We had a day out with Lev and Sarah at the Gordon Ramsay run gastro-pub, The Narrow. We were very lucky with the weather, and it was nice to chat along the riverside in the sun, and have soeme very nice food (the slow roasted pork belly was a bive favourite). On the way home we popped into The Railway Tavern for a quick drink before getting our train home.
Just had a walk down to bank to see what's going on with the G20 protests....lots of people, Police and reporters. Bank has been totally blocked off now, with Police blocking anyone from getting near to the junction by the Bank of England...this was as close as I could get.
