Wind in the Willows

We went to an open air theatre production of Wind In The Willows at Regents Park today. It could not have been at a better day with a picnic brunch before the show and sitting in the cool shade of some trees after the show.

The production was great and we had an entertaining few hours. Pictures will be posted soon.

Queer Eye for a Straight Guy lovers may remember an episode where a country styled boy proposed to his Armenian girlfriend. The Fab-5 took the country boy to a chocolate shop called Du Chocolat. Today we found a shop of same name in London, but I don't think its related to anything. When you walk into the shop your senses are hit by the fragrant smell of chocolate. Its more than enough to make your mouth water.

Big Brother addiction

Lulu is now officially obsessed with UK Big Brother only after a few nights. She's watching it even as I happily tap away (I've finally been able to get some net time).

Denzil on sharing

One day there was this guy who bought a laptop while he was in Hong Kong with his girlfriend. His girlfriend was rather fond of their laptop and their internet connection.

We finally got ourselves a TV from Lily's flatmates who will be returning to Australia soon in August. Thanks James and Jo!

Sometimes even super heros don't like the rain. The photo was taken on bus 137 (my favourite bus route) on the way home one rainy afternoon. The 137 happens to connect our place with Cindy's.

Support the home team.

While in England I've (ie Denzil) taken to the idea of supporting the home team

One day this couple had broadband internet at home. The girlfriend had to get up extra early to get to the laptop before the boyfriend took it back off her.

Brighton is not just a place in the south of Sydney. It is also a beach side town in the south of England. Saturaday had such beautiful weather that we decided to go there for the day.

The beach itself is not much like the ones at home. For a start their is little/no sand, its actually a pebble beach. Its not so bad to sit or lie upon, infact its was rather nice doing so.

People from Sydney who remember Pier One just to the left of the Sydney Harbour Bridge (south side) will be delighted to know that the piers at Brighton are full of amusements, and rides.

For the shop-a-holics out there, the place is full of little lanes and alley ways where you can find the most interesting nic-nacks or the latest fashions. Needless to say Lulu couldn't get enough of it!

After much bagging of the English weather, especially how the sun has no strength like back home in Oz, we got home burnt. Our faces have raccoon eyes now :(

Prague (18/7/2004 - 20/7/2004)

We went to Prague!!! Best part of Prague was the weather. Having been in London for so long we haven't seen much blue sky, but in Prague all we got was blue sky and HOT HOT STICKY weather. Never knew how much we missed it!

Prague Castle would have to be my favourite. Baroque buildings surround lovely squares and fountains. The grounds are even large enough to house a cathedral.

The only other place I really wanted to see was the old Jewish Cemetry. Unfortunately photos were not really allowed (it didn't stop some people though).

Lulu's favourite quote from Denzil is "Oh no I've only 300 photos left on my digital camera, is that enough?!?!?"
