Post weekend update:
Saturday afternoon, I popped down to St Agnes Place, an old community Kennington squat now threatened with eviction.
We couldn’t stay long as a trip to town was needed, grabbing a quick coffee in the Photographer’s Gallery.
In the evening, we went to a friend’s wedding party at the Brockwell Park Lido – and what with all that beer, the warm evening air and the poolside bar I could almost imagine I was in Greece. Well, nearly…. 😉
Next day, suitably hungover, we ventured north to Clissold Park for the Alternative Euro 2004, where urban75 were fielding a team, ably managed by their firm-but-fair coach, Amy.
Sadly, it wasn’t to be a glory day for the urban75 team, but it was their first competition so it’s early days yet!
Apparently, there’s talk of a volleyball team starting up soon too!
Later on there was much drinking to be done in the Rose and Crown nearby before dashing off home to watch England turn a glorious victory into a depressing defeat in the last three minutes of the game against France.
Maybe – just maybe – my beloved Wales might finally qualify for something in my lifetime….
Oh, and finally, I’ve just posted up another big collection of photos taken from my April trip to St Ives – if you’re stuck in an office and would rather be someplace else, maybe these pics will help you pass the time and think of nicer things than some arsey accounts manager!
