That London....

I had to go up to that London this morning, to my solicitors, to sign my end of the sale contract. If all goes well she expects we will exchange this week, and probably complete by the end of the month.... What has taken ages to come to pass, now seems to be happening all at once, but that's definitely a "good thing" though.

As their office is right behind St.Paul's Cathedral, I walked past it en-route back down to the river, taking a photo on the way, and then another later on from the South Bank, near Tate Modern and the infamous Wobbly Bridge (which no longer wobbles of course.)

This route back to Waterloo also afforded the opportunity for a quick pint in The Anchor at Bankside. Despite being a tourist trap of course, (it was actually quite quiet today) it's still a pretty decent pub, and does a lovely pint of Wadworth 6X, the King of bitters in my book.

Now I'm supposedly "off the sauce" at the moment, and have been these past few months as part of my quest for greater slenderness and beauty; but on a hot day, on the riverside terrace, after you've traipsed halfway round the City, allowances must surely be made. Besides, succmbing to temptation once in a while is a "good thing" too. It prevents us developing an overblown sense of our own virtuousness...and I did avoid the ice-creams after all.

Herewith my afternoon in pictures.
