Brooks, they of super-comfy saddles that saved my bum on last year’s 120-mile Dunwich Dynamo, invited me a few weeks ago to join the Tweed Run. If you’ve never been, it’s a lot of people in tweed riding around London. I’ve never been on it but I’ve seen the great outfits, so I knew that [...]
This post was all ready to go yesterday and I plain forgot! Oops, well it is a bank holiday… British Pathé recently uploaded a ton of videos from their archive to their You Tube channel. There’s loads of stuff to see, including this amusing ’60s demo of a haircut based on the Twist and the [...]
One of the perks of being a freelancer, last Friday I downed my laptop like it was the weekend and headed west to Kew Gardens. It’s one of those London things that unless you’re a tourist you wouldn’t bother doing, but it’s a totally life-affirming thing. It came up as a ‘what’s a lovely thing [...]
Some art is like a bit of research, or it’s like getting an idea or a concept and then some art is just very simply great. The new Matisse Cut-out exhibition coming to the Tate Modern this weekend is just that, a joyful and expert celebration of colour and shape. Starting off as a way [...]

Tomorrow is International Women’s Day and I will be taking part in the WOW Festival, celebrating women of the world. Recently TV shows like Girls (haven’t seen it, can’t comment!) have highlighted the cultural imbalance in feminism so it’s nice to see an event that takes a holistic approach to equality and freedom for women. [...]
Today I trotted (well, cycled) over the bridge, taking a break from the Fashion Week goings on at Somerset House to make a best canadian pharmacy to buy viagra visit to the Tate Modern and their Roy Lichtenstein exhibition preview. The Lichtenstein show is the Tate’s first since 1968 and worth a visit purely for [...]
Cycle lanes are iced over, the main roads are full of slush and it’s freezing! You don’t have to let a bit of genuine viagra online snow put you off cycling though, as long as you’re careful you can carry on cycling in deepest winter.
The best tip is to keep to main roads, some [...]
Does anyone else get tapas fear? That subconscious small plates worry that you won’t fill your belly, it’s a really concern for a total pig like me.
I had my food radar on red alert at Tramontana Brindisa, the latest tapas kitchen from the Borough-based Spanish food importer. I was quickly calmed by some super-strong [...]
