Things to do in London
Blame it on the sun... it's brought out my inner curmudgeon. But on a gorgeous summer's day like today, I couldn't think of anything worse than hitting up a food market in London. Tongue slightly in cheek, here are the six reasons why I'm staying away...
I've always been the 'education' type. You'd be more likely to find me with a book in hand than a ball when I was younger, and there was no question as to whether university was the best choice for me on leaving school. At the risk of sounding like a bit of a geek, I just really like learning.
