The Editor's #London Diary 2015: September @MiamiDolphins @RnRArchaeology #PigGate #Hameron


Hogmanay! The DC editor Adam rounds up his London in 2015…


September

At the very start of September my daughter and I tagged along on my wife Karen's British Museum tour…




September marks the return of the school year and to take my mind off the fact that I am missing my daughter so badly (she's only along the road, it's not as if I send her away to Hogwarts or anything, but I still miss her) I try to open the school year with one of my beloved long walks.

This year was no exception…






From Canary Wharf…




…via The City…


 and through the West End, on to Putney and a nice cup o' tea and a sit down at Loo Loo's…



… To Richmond. 15-or-so miles.



(Find Loo Loo's cafe on Facebook here: www.facebook.com/loolooscafeputney)


It Might As Well Rain Until September…


It rained a bit in September too…



…on one occasion washing away my Rock'n'Roll London walk completely! Here's the vid…





Consolation was to be had in the publication of 2nd issue of the Rock'n'Roll London Comic Book






Go Dolphins!

For the second year in a row, in the company of  Daily Constitutional Special Correspondent David, I was a guest of the Miami Dolphins at Wembley in some very, VERY posh seats



Thanks again guys! (Sorry about the result :( )


You Guys!

In September I also had the great privilege of meeting Bonnie Rose and Reginald the chihuahua…




…and Christian Swain who is the mastermind behind one of the best podcasts around, the Rock'n'Roll Archaeology Project

Down on the Westminster Farm, Oink, Oink

I had a lot of fun blogging about the Prime Minister's alleged propensities for necrophilia and beastiality combined (what's not to love in THAT phrase?), as did our scabrous national press…



I get the feeling I might end up blogging the picture above almost as often as I blog the shot of the Wimbledon scoreboard that records Andy Murray's famous victory. What? You haven't seen it before? Oh, go on then…


(Note to self: I promise not to post the Murray pic any more than five or six times in 2016)



Cross My Palm With Silver…


There was also a Psychic Night advertised at a local pub in September and I wondered…



… if they are psychic, why can't they advertise what time it's going to end?




Next time… October
