So saw a post on WordPress this week showing a weekly photography challenge so thought I’d give it a go.


Took this little snap in a Hartlepool bar that was in the wall of a train station called ‘The Rat Race’ only bar iv ever been in with no bar, this is probably due to the tiny size of the place. The real ale in there was pretty good though!

Anyone interested in joining in the photography challenge head over to the daily post






The Last Week Of September!

“Effectiveness lies in the balance”

So a friend of mine said they are going to be starting a blog, so I thought that might be a good idea, I mean I have never kept a diary – think that’s probably because its easier to forget if you don’t have something to look back on ha!

So this last week I had popped to London for the day.

I was really looking forward to seeing the new Stegosaurus at the National History Museum  (#loveThatPlace)


its pretty impressive and I suggest you go see if for yourself as this picture don’t do it justice.

I also got to go on HMS Belfast, this experience I must say was not as I had imagined, I kinda knew it was a war ship (obviously) but I did not anticipate all the tight ladders, if you are of a bigger stature you may very well struggle around the ship.

I did find the information really interesting such as the exact location the guns are aimed at and how awesome and forward thing our engineering was back then, it’s a real eye opener.


Also of all the times I have been to London I have never seen #TowerBridge open and I got to see it twice that day, was pretty awesome.


Last but not least I went to go see St Paul’s Cathedral, think it is one of the most beautiful places in London.


The #WhisperingGallery gives access to the roof giving you a beautiful view of the London skyline, only better place to see it from is The Shard.


anyway I really enjoyed this and if anyone reads this let me know your favorite places an the things you love about them, also let me know what has #HappenedThisWeek with you!
