Today is one whole year since I started my blog. Hoorah!

Yesterday was my 28th birthday and once again, I spent it in London with beautiful Anna. Phill has college on Thursdays so I went up with him in the morning. That meant getting up at stupid o clock and catching a train at 6.15am. Ouch!

I spent an hour or so sitting in the park at the bottom of the London Eye. I had a coffee and my knitting and the sun was shining. It was lovely!

Anna and I spent most of the day hunting the elephants that are currently "on parade" around the centre of London. They are raising awareness of the plight of the Indian Elephant and they have a petition here

And here are some of my pictures from the day. Click to embiggen.

Scumbags :(

This is what is left of the padlock on our shed. Someone has been in to our garden, cut off the lock and stolen Phill's bike. Just his bike! I'm actually quite impressed. Our garden is surrounded by 5 other gardens. The shed is flush against a wall that is at least 6 foot high and the other side of the wall is a garage. To get a bike out is actually quite an achievement!

When I went to get a new lock, I saw this and had to get it to make myself feel better!
