Started watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer this week
New security measures at Lloyd's
These are interesting times. The city is probably one of the main targets for similar attacks. The last being in 2005 which also included some failed attempts later that month.
I was on the last Euro Star train out of London that day as we were on a works away day(s) to Bruges so missed much of what happened on 7/7. We were also coming back from a team lunch after the failed bombings so had to stay away from the offices for a limited time before getting back to work.
Sadly London will get hit again but more importantly I certainly don't worry about it. There's no point. London is a big place and the chances of something happening to you or someone you might know are tiny. Get on with your life, these extremists will get found and things will get back to normal shortly.

She will sit anywhere
Guess who: Tonbridge Edition
Making it personal adds quite a few dimensions to the questions you can ask. Most of ones I come up with are insulting.

Just ordered a new mouse
Last stupid purchase
My laptop is 4.25 years old but still chugs along nicely due to it's beefy processor, certainly enough for my Football Manager addiction. My tablet is still decent after nearly 3 years but unfortunately i've recently added an addition crack on the screen. It still works fine for what I need it to do however which is a bit of internet surfing and watching movies on my commute.
Anyway. Despite that, i've decided to splash out on one last silly purchase before our new arrival arrives in October.
I've bought myself a rather swish Surface Pro with a rather hefty price tag to boot.
This is just the beginning of what I can do with it...
Now the important part. Try not to smash it. My track record could be better as I've damaged my phone again, the camera glass smashed whilst on holiday. It works fine but it does need fixing. iSmash have quoted £30 so hopefully they can sort that out today.

Every airport should have one
Left alone for 5 minutes
Some young foals
I think you're lost
Show local wildlife
One of the fish patters we ate
Food was very good, although pretty much every restaurant we tried had the same food available (at different standards).
It would have been nice to have a little more variation.
Our hotel pool at night
Some more photos of Mykonos town
The posh beach
There was a very fancy beach next to the main one, we only popped down to take a look. On the way back we decided to take a less precarious route via another hotel and were busted. Luckily April saved the day with her condition.
We did need to buy two exigencies coffees in the bar though.
A trip into town
5 minutes walk to the beach
Downhill, not so much fun on the way back. I popped in for a swim on the last day, it was cold so you had to move about to stay warm. Saying that, there were one or two warm currents so not that bad.
The view from the balcony
My Dad and I fixing my garden fence. We had them over yesterday to help us tidy up our garden for the summer. Apart from one mishap when the mower was set to low I am very pleased. Thank you!

I won Trojan of the year last night at the rugby club end of season dinner. I'm really quite pleased. The major problem was thatI had to drink out of it all night. A bigger problem was that I had to be up at 3am the next day for a flight to Mykonos. I got in at half past midnight. Urgh...

That's really helpful... I thought I'd try and learn a little Greek before our holiday. That's not really what I was after. Perhaps I'll ask the Greek guy that sits next to me at work.
Giving the lawn a few last sprinkles
And before you ask, I'm watering it with water.
It almost needs its first haircut too although that'll have to wait for another week or so till we get back from holiday and I buy a mower.

More mad CAD skills from Stuart
17 wins out of 20. I think my record was about 15 wins out of 17.
Pretty chuffed with the season really. Well done lads. This Friday is our prize giving, which is also the night before I fly off to Mykonos for the week. The flight's at 6:10 in the morning so I think April may need to drive to Gatwick at 3:30 in the morning the next day. I don't think i'll be much use.
In case you're not aware, i'm hosting the sporting event that ends all sporting events this summer. July first will be the inaugural Tonbridge Olympics (name subject to change / court case). We won't be doing any of the official events, just silly ones I make up, nick from other sources or generally ones I think I can win.
So far we have 20+ people that will be joining in.
Events promised so far
- Crazy golf
- Wellie Wanging
- Short sprint
I was walking home from the station last night and put a shuffle mix on my music. Straight after Zombie by the Cranberries I heard the little heartbeat.
