A few years ago I decided to try Bikram yoga (the hot type) thinking I needed some relaxing activity to compliment my running. Then I took the first lesson.... I tried to contort my body in the positions the teacher showed us, but my joints and muscles kept replying to my brain "f***k off mate, that ain't happening". I kept looking at our lady instructor thinking - what!?, how is she!?, that's not physically possible! - all that while in a room at Sahara desert temperatures. On the plus side I learned that my eyelids are able to sweat - who knew!?. Lesson learned, if you want to relax take a nap.

Being out on a sunny day, sunshine is such a rare commodity in London that I almost feel guilty not to seize it when shows up.
The sense of freedom I get when riding my motorcycle up a mountain pass, not to mention the huge grin on my face after accelerating out of a hairpin, it's the closest thing to feeling like a kid again, yay
Breakfast, I have more in common with zombies than with humans until I've had something to eat and coffee.
My smartphone, it's like a second appendage, so freaking useful it makes you wonder how you lived without it, even though we did!
Pictures, of the friends and family I left in Spain and the new ones I've made in London.
You want to teach me how to inline-skate . Learning on my own is cool but don't think my bum can take many more hits.
Now that Spring is getting closer you'd like to have a nice meal and some drinks at the Founder's Arms in the Southbank, or you know of another great pub to have a good time in the sunshine.
