One of my guys at work offered to show me around his climbing club which happens to be in Mile End and a stones throw from my abode.
Of course I jumped at the chance!!!
Straight away I felt comfortable and took to it easily. Even my long nails didn't stop me pressing for harder climbs much to the dismay of my coach! Who kept telling me to be careful and not get over confident (but admitted I may be teaching him soon) :0)
I just had to go with it...how are you ever going to learn if you don't fall on your arse every now and then!! (I didn't but ended up on the intermediate climbs on my first day)
After weeks of stressing about my birthday party I have finally found a venue I LOVE!!!!
My party last year was held at the decadent Beach Blanket Babylon in Shoreditch......I wanted to match this but it needed to be in the same area......
This was a pretty hard task, in shoreditch you either have very very trendy (and a bit grotty but cool with it) or very very exclusive (media peeps who are renowned for being clicky & unwelcoming) I have a mix of friends and I wanted everyone to be comfortable...swanky but relaxed cool and easy.
I reserved a nice space in the main bar which has a DJ and at 9pm the club downstairs opens.
My other half loves a good game of Ping Pong and I love beating him at it :)
So I was happy to find out about a great event going on in London for the next few weeks. Ran by the same team who made pianos pop up all over London they will now be doing the same but with Ping Pong tables!! something fun to do on a boring Sunday afternoon!!
You can also take classes and enter tournaments for prizes!
