been a while since i last updated. i dont have the internet at my disposal as much any more. the pub im working at is easy i have already chucked a sicky on the england game on sat, battersea club was far more important. just happend to be the most rammed day ever, oh well.
anyway im heading back home in two weeks!!! jonez hope ur ready for some drinking.
must go watch footaball
I have a new job!! its a pub around the corner in fulham, and well perfect for some extra cash while im here. working part time so i can spend more time drinking and doing what i enjoy!!!
other news - brook and i are apparently getting evicted as we have not paid rent. out of our hands and well we tried. so after all the panic and the advice of everyone were not paying it. f--k them silly asians have dug them self a massive hole. their dodgy, no rent book, not declaring it to the inland revenue nothing. we have them wrapped around our little finger. so yeah very interesting. sure to keep u posted on this.
my 21st soon so were hopefully going to some rave?!! no idea. im not too fussed, either way i probably wont remember what i do so thats cool.
hope ur all well.
Finally warmth has set in summer is here now and its great to be back in the sun.
Nothing new really happening in my life. living very healthy, eating well u know how it is.
its the fa cup final this weekend and then we battersea club and maybe after that go to the white house to see james zabiela. its such a hard life.
Summer is coming!!! its sunny the boathouse terrace was packed on wednesday night, summer is nearly here. we have one more cold snapp apparently this weekend then its gone forever!!!
hoping to have a great weekend, very interesting week though. the highlight was jack and harry in a hollly bush, giggling like Beavis and Butthead. so cute.
work just gets better and better. literally get paid for nothing.
well as you can see from the photos Easter was fantastic. Quite easilly the most expesive weekend of my life but one of the best. Rai had a great send off. As usual was not what anyone expected.
The weekend just gone was even just as stupid. Watching liverpool kick chelseas arse was the highlight. Having my bag stolen during the game was the lowest point, but Sol Campbell brother finding my passport was the biggest suprise.
yes i can see why i get called the struggler. i had onnly had my bank card for two days and then its stolen again. hopeless.
Saturday evening we spent with harry and jack, great night at jacks place drinking.
So its finally Good Bye to Raimondo. He was sent off with a crazy weekend that succesfully summed up his life in London. Brook and I are now left with our selves and some crazy boys to spend our weekends with. See ya The Raimond. Enjoy the sun!!
Since last Wednesday I have been in a pub. Thursday night i ventured out with Jack on a mission. Involved getting into trouble with the new boathouse staff for nicking the keys, and Jack stealing a whole leg of beef for a bbq. silly.
friday Rai brook and i went to the walkabout in Putney it was Rai last time.
Saturday went to Portobello markets and then went to groove armada, average set along with rai whingeing made it unbearable. bus ride and getting home was grand. shoe box was tested to its full potential.
sunday the three of us and harry went to the crabtree and then later the george jacks and hays joined. we had a great night.. theres so many details and stories but i can venture into details, as im lazy
What a Rolllercoaster
Well Boat Race lived up to all the expectations of a good drinking day, if I had not been tangled up into working Im sure i would of had fun. Though I cant complain, i did get drunk. ella and i are quickly getting a reputation, even the dodgiest people in south west london struggled to hang around us yesterday.
Saturday was one of my most rewarding days since i have been in London and i cant believe it has taken me nealry 9 months to venture to Portobello markets. What a fantastic place and its so close to where we live. I also finally managed to have a hair cut..
Well today I should be finishing my job forever, but Im not. I have been kindly asked to stay yet another two weeks. I was orginally supposed to finsih at the end of February so I must be doing something right.
I have quite a plain weekend planned. Tonight I am going to meet Pitbull ( Eva) and hit the piss. She has constantly reminded me she has vodka and well the girl is charger completely above my standard. If I survive I will tell all.
Brook and I are working at the Boathouse running the outside Corona bars on Sunday, exciting. ..
Well what a week!!!
Work has been extremely boring and I cannot wait till Friday and be finally out of this place. I have literally spent the last two weeks walking around the office pretending to work. Any job that I end up doing is boring and I quite simply just dont do it. What are they going to do?? Please fire me and give me my money!!!!
As far as the weekend went the Boat House once again became the centre of it all. Firday night Boathouse, then Walkabout. Saturday Boathouse then Thai Square, and finally sunday was spent drinking ridiculous amounts of alchohol with Eva at the Boathouse.
I did have full intentions of going to the science museum but that didnt happen. I blame the bad influences in my life, they come in all shapes and forms and from all directions. I'll let your imagination run riot.
The new house is going fine. Apparently according to Ella I have started World War 3 with the upstairs neighbours while I was in a drunken rebellious state. Who Knows?? They attempted to throw toilet roll into our window. Well thats what Ella and I assume. Me coming home pissed on Sunday night didnt help at all. All I can say is bring it on!!
Not much planned for the up and coming week, apart from working Boat Race day and doing some drinking spending and H&M'ing on Friday!!!
Its friday again, life is getting so repetitive...
Have very little plans for this weekend, maybe go to some museum. all the free stuff that i need to do. Im not drinking or doing anything bad for me. shall be interesting.
This week i discoverd the wonders of buy one get one free. also that redwine is a guarentee head ache the next day, and i will never work for a solicitors ever again!!!
ONE MORE WEEK OF THIS PROPERTY LAW BULLSHIT!!!
Location: London, UK
Well eventually we have moved house!!! were now living in Fulham and how lovely it is. ella and i have moved into a shoebox and easilly made it look lived in.
Now there are always good and bad aspects of new homes.
here are the good aspects:
*we have a shop right opposite our front door!!! its huge and sells everything u could ever need
* We have new flat mates
* we have a door in our room that leads to a back garden that has a lawn and barbecue and allows us to enter our room without going through the house.
Now for the bad aspects:
* the shop closes at 8pm everynight. why??
* one of our flatmates has a mullet that is greasy and he is scary
* the door doesnt open, no matter how hard we try.
i am learning so much over here. the main thing i have realised is; No matter how hard you try somethings are just not meant to be perfet. keeps our lives interesting though.
Well tonight is the night that Ella and I move home. we dont have to leave rannoch rd till Saturday but where going to take some stuff over as tomorrow is st paddys day and might be unable to move as there is some important guiness drinking to be done.
Last night was our last night with the boys. great ending to a great era. smoking weed in ur bedroon with the occassional crazy kiwi popping in and out wondering if we had the phone, or anything that they have lost but immediatly blamed us.
Its been an eventful several months and now i can see so much light at the end. with my trip actually forming and a new home, there is as much to look forward to, as there is to be missed.
I have cleverly constructed a trip through europe during the world cup, its a loz style adventure, 'Fluke it through Europe'. the only sensible thing i have pre prepared is buying a busabout bus pass that takes me everywhere and a plane tickets to amsterdam, and another from barcelona to london so i can get my flight home, when i decide that is???? But apart from that, i am freeee to do whatever i want on my trip. So if i get caught up somewhere i can stay. it makes sense. I'll start in Amsterdam and make my way down to Barcelona.

You know your life is quite silly when you refuse to stop drinking even if you simply dont have a penny to your name. Fortuante for Rai, Ella and I this dilemma doesnt cause much of an issue as we have the Boathouse for our alchoholic habits. We ought to call our selves the Three Desperado's. We purposely set bar tabs up knowing we cant pay for them. The best bit always is knowing that everything is going to be fine.
Managed to stumble home later on Sunday. Very very long weekend with no desire for it to end. We spent most of the time at Raimondo home, and Fabric was amazing. Kid Knobi was easilly the best of the night. The scariest part of the night for me was the full lazy eye. Now I dont know where this terrible feature comes from but it is not a very pleasent look. We all had our down points though, Ella complained of going in to a new reality, and well Rai was just his usual self, which is good enough.

Oh what a lovely day at work. I love Fridays no one ever feels like working and well especially me. Though today has really gone my way. One by one all the solicitors and everyone have left. So i get to do absolutely nothing and then leave early. I love this countrys work ethic.
Going to Fabric tonight to Eargasm. I am very excited. Rai Ella and Carlos are venturing with me. cant wait to tell all later.
Location: Rannoch Road, UK
The weekend is here and we all go to the battersea club. have a fantastic night, and great send off for lisa. Hope u loved it missy.

It was watangi day today, some thing to do with new zealand. as far as i can gather i think it was just an excuse to be dickheads cause australia day was the week before. what fun! trampled on in the tube, i think kiwi are the most barbaric nation in the western world. they are just odd.

I managed to get a job in a Law Firm again!! wooohooo 9 till 5!
Location: London, UK
Wooohooo Today is my last ever shift at the Boat House. I absolutely loved it as it was an absolute joke. 3 staff and about 20'000 customers. got a love it! eva and i lost control of food and spent the whole time pissing our selves laughing at customers complaints. PRICELESS DAY. even got an extra £20 for working so hard.
That night went out to dinner with eva and adam, got smashed
Location: Barcelona, Spain
How exciting, rai lisa and I are off on an adventure. ..
Barcelona is the most beatiful city, and that is in all aspects. As we all arrived into the La Ramaba, the culture, arts, and beauty of this city coverd us. There was so much to see, so little time (as we soon discoverd), and so much drinking as well as shredding brains to be experienced. Though for the first 2hrs Rai dragged us up and down insistent that he knew where the backpackers were. '
'Nice work out bruv!'
Well we eventually found the backpackers though to be perfectly honest I was loving walking up and down looking at the statue people, they are quality entertainment. We checked in found our room and had a fight about who gets which bunk.
Rai once again - 'Nice one Bruv'
The first day was spent struggleing and roaming. That night we went down to some beer hall, too much lager shouting, no music what so ever. nice place to see though. On the friday we carried on some bus tour, very lovely. We saw lots of sights and other things. and i really really enjoyed it. I remember at one point we were trying to find some nice authentic Tapas. Off the beaten Tourist Trap was our mission and it did prove a struggle. i think we actually sat down in three different Tapas bars and then walked out straight away. Anyway it turns out that Pizza was good enough.
That Friday night we had some drinks down at the backpackers bar. they only selled litre heiniken so lisa had to break down her beer phobia. She did fantastic, whoolfing the gallons dowm! We actually ventured into this bar on the thursday night but we got harrased by some tight jeans, greasy, melbourne wanker. his enthusiasm was scary. So lisa and i met some aussie true bluers, and american boy called gabriel, from Hollywood. turned out that they could have a laugh, and headed off for night. whooo this is where we met Maul, he also took us to one of his bars, met some nice people, had a chat and so on. ... That Saturday morning as it was a nice day we went into La Ramba we had some food in a lovely resterant. Then we were back on the bus seeing more sights. great day!! it was our last day so we were loving it. I was a wee bit stressed over work (long story) but once I called them we were fine. That night it was our last so we did have a high expectations at the least. we headed off to some bar and had some drinks. When the bar closed rai lisa and i casually walked for a while deciding where to go, we headed back to the backpackers where rai decided to light up a ciggeratte. we had no lighter as usual so he kindly asks a guy, jonny. We ended up going back to his spanish apartment, it was so beautiful. Jonny was a fantastic artist, and his home was so beautiful. I really really treasured that moment. we all signed his wall, and left. nearly 2 in the morning so we think we should head off to the back packers.
We were in some side ally in Barcelona, no idea where we were. Though the dodgy fellas selling beer are hanging around on the corners were around so we get some beer!! Then the strangest thing then happend, Maul appeared. we get chatting then he takes us back to his place which is a backpackers. more like a home. We had a very big night with maul. great fun, we all enjoyed it very much. and well before we knew it was 8am in the morning, and time to go, but not one of us could get up. we wanted to stay another night. we didnt have feel like leaving even though then we were fully aware of the concequences. Yep we f--ked our flight off. and stayed at maul backpackers. while we were there we ment some amazing individuals and it really showed all three of us so much. I know i gained so much from those people.
Anyway the whole guilt and worrying made us book a flight on the monday which was so expensive. but we had to head home. On the final night we sat around and got a wee bit messy cause of one particular drug. priceless.
It was an emotional rollercoaster on the way home but the trip was amazing. thanks so much lisa and Rai for that. I had a great time, and i spent it with some great friends. I know we'll laugh for years to come at this.
Ok its a monday, its lisa and nicks birthday - Of course were going to celebrate!
cam and i bought some cakes, i made sure we had some bucksfizz, u know the whole class no arse image happening. £2 a bottle cant complain, and lisa loved it! i know she trys to be the whole H&M but its the little things that let her down :-).
we had some drinks and some more, bit of cake, some celebrations like you do. went to the puzzle had roughly 36 shots in less than 10mins between 6 of us. thanks boys. i threw up in the middle of the puzzle, very very classy! headed back home and once again trashed the house. easilly one of the best nights ever!! thanks everyone. we may of broken the tv and caused some serious issues with the neighbours but it was worth it. and the coffee table is now our dance floor!! i have bruises all over my arms from sharing tooo much love on that table. Happy birthday lisa and Nick. i hope u had a good day and all the best for the up and coming year.
This has been my first ever saturday off since starting at the luuurve boat house. as it is lisa and nicks birthday on monday we all decided to have a kind of party thing. basically that means me lisa and ela sitting in a lounge full of kiwis and rugby on the tv. we should of known then absolute recipe for disaster!
so we all drank and drank and drank. really struggle to remember details. all i know is by about 6pm ela had fallen down the stairs with lisa, fallen in the doorway some how with lisa, as well as breaking a bed with leitch? we successfully trashed our own home, just the residents not the guests. it was an absolute free for all.
later on we headed down to the local puzzwahhh for some drinks. gotta love it, some how i scabbed half a pizza off this guy. lisa reackons she was horrifed but not anough to help me eat it. so i think we were a bit over the puzzle and went home to then decide that the slut and legless was a better venue for us. hmmmm definatly the remixed trance bop bop version of country road was the hightlight. wicked day!
the weekend looming and i have tomorrow off work. very excited as its a saturday!!
