Still Here…

“a symbol of that restless physical impulse to seek the still unachieved in the domain of material things”

I want to let you know I am still posting about my Olympic / Paralympic Volunteering Experience 2012 with Guest Posts.

It felt appropriate that I made it to the centre of Hyde Park to the Physical Energy Statue after the recent London Ambassador training in July 2013. Yes I am partaking again this year.

As unfortunately I lack in the above (physical energy) due to Fibromyalgia and M.E. It can affect my ability to function and thus post on here. I also suffer with Electro Magnetic Sensitivity and so my time on computers is limited. If you don’t see me on here for a while, like past months, this is usually why.

So until I post again I’ll  leave you with a favourite image I found whilst on the tube this trip: Lego Underground!


Christmas Sparkle

Regent St Lights - 12 Days of Christmas

After leaving the London Ambassadors Christmas Concert in Trafalgar Square I took a cold stroll up Regents Street to see the Twelve days of Christmas Lights…

It was the first time I had walked the entire length of Regents Street and I loved seeing the architecture.

I had hoped to see more of London’s Christmas Sparkle myself but time and health were limited. I unfortunately had to forgo Reindeer Petting at Covent Garden, which i heard about on BBC Radio London. Also ice skating at Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park

However, I did catch fellow blogger Davide at Travelling Dave on Twitter going to The Chocolate Festival on the South Bank Centre Square on Sunday. He kindly agreed to capture some of the festive atmosphere along South Bank. So pretty to see our summer home all lit up with Christmas lights and the South Bank Centre Christmas Market.

I was very pleased to receive my London Ambassador uniform for the Summer via courier the other day!

It looks a lot nicer in reality than the photos we first saw at Module One Training. As a fellow London Ambassador said on our LA Facebook Group “Attention has been paid to the detail.”

Modelling the London Ambassador Waterproof on is photostream is Chris Lyes. Lets hope we wont actually need it!
