Finally, after being in the UK for 11 months, and living in London for most of that, I feel happy to be living here.

Cool architecture

April 18, 2007

Paul and I have recently watched a couple of interesting architecture programs. One was about the Casa Mila by Antoni Gaudi and the second was about the Johnson Wax Headquarters by Frank Lloyd Wright. Paul is really interested in Architecture and I think I could be too. I quite like looking at interesting buildings and Paul has some great plans for a house he would like to build one day. I’m excited about being involved in that process.


Everybody dance now, lost cities and bloody Adbusters!

April 18, 2007

I have had the sorest legs since Monday when I went to the gym with Paul. We worked on our legs (doing stretches and weights) and I did a heap of lunges that really worked my poor leg muscles! I made sure I went for a little walk up to the shops yesterday to get my legs moving but it sure hurt (especially going down stairs and there are four stairs in our flat so every time I go down to the lounge and kitchen it HURTS). I had planned on going to the gym today and I should go and at least do something – my membership problems have been sorted so they shouldn’t stop me going in!
