A few photos for the week, starting with our regular Friday night pub fun (the Friday before last in fact).

A few of us headed down for some after work drinks at The Barley Mow.

First up, a fruit machine. This is the english version of a pokie except they generally only have 1 or 2 in the pub instead of the 20, 30, 40 we have. (They also seem to have them in some takeaway shops too. Odd.) They’re also generally older styled with all sorts of strange bits and bobs. I watched Matt play and can honestly say I haven’t got the foggiest idea what he did.. but same result, he lost! 😉

Watch out in a later post for another pub staple, the quiz machine which has computerised trivia games that can win you money.

But anyway, I present, a fruit machine!


Here’s the work crew looking happy having fun!


And a rainbow out our window at home! One of the things I didn’t expect when moving to London was that the rain isn’t really that good. It never really pours that often, but just falls fairly gently (albeit for days or weeks on end). But last night had a really good fall of rain, it really poured but towards the end, just as the sun was about to go down, the rays shone in from the west to create a really bright rainbow. So here it is! (Shame about the scaffolding though)
