Property Porn

To keep things interesting on my daily walks throughout Bromley, I vary my route and make sure that my iPod is loaded with a good selection of music and podcasts. I also make sure that my iPhone is fully changed as I often stop to take pictures of flowers, plants, trees, animals, houses, etc. – basically, anything that tickles my fancy! Seeing the houses across Bromley (especially the large ones), fills me with excitement and also turns me into a dreamer. I dream about what it would be like to own and decorate one of these mansion-like houses that are […]

Passion Fruit

The people who owned my house many moons ago were devoted gardeners. And as such, they planted a number of flowers, fruit trees and other assorted plants. Each year when the flowers bloom and there are fruits on the trees, I’m completely amazed as I really don’t pay enough attention to the garden.

You can view photographs of my garden in my Home & Garden Facebook […]

Prunus Avium

Its official, I have gone suburban. During the week I commute to inner London and return to my home in one of the outer boroughs. Then on the weekends, while I know fun activities beckon back in the city, I couldn’t be bothered to make the trek in. Furthermore, I’m getting more and more interested in gardening. This is really surprising since my garden is quite small and I can’t even identify half the plants and flowers currently growing. However, I recently discovered that I have a cherry tree at the bottom of the garden. And what’s really cool, is […]

Crappy Customer Service

You get into bed with the devil and you know you are going to get screwed — and not necessarily in a good way. Case in point, I decided to go with Sky instead for Virgin for cable services since they have more channels with American programming. This was ordered and installed at the end of October. At the time, I choose to stick with the regular free box instead of paying £100 for a Sky+ Box. Mainly because the major selling feature — being able to record programs to watch later didn’t really appeal to me. Then around mid […]
