Jet washing the patio. Looks spiffing, plus I made a right old racket for 2 hours.

Friday morning, I was putting some washing out on the line and saw a red kite fly off from a tree in our garden. Whilst they are common flying over the centre of town where we live but never seen one in the garden. An hour later I went out for a run - and saw a heron take off from a neighbours garden. All in the peaceful quiet of the early morning.

Kid's having his 5th birthday party a couple doors down. Loves his football, so they're having a kick around in their back garden. Massive row going on already, raised voices, wailing and crying from several kids. "HE WAS OFFSIDE!!!" "NO I WASN'T, IT'S 3-1!!!!"

Driving to Hackney Marshes yesterday, took us through Stamford Hill, my 11 year old son starts laughing 'look at that man' , 'whats wrong with his hair', 'look at that silly hat' ,hes shouts (windows down in the heat), 'there's another one, and another one!!' this went on all the way through, then again on the way back, whilst his mum was telling him to keep his voice down, made me chuckle at the innocence of a young boy from Hertfordshire seeing a new culture for the first time!!!

Upper Clapton & Stoke Newington, as well.
It is very noticeable (the amount of Orthodox Jewish people walking around), the first time you go through those areas.
It doesn't disturb me, they all seem very peaceful & law-abiding, if a little insular, but that may be wrong, on my part.
I guess it may seem odd to a child, the first time on seeing.

It piqued my interest, so googled about it and found some interesting stuff, albeit a little odd!

Cheers guys.
Not celebrating yet as I still have two other essays to finish.

Besides, I prefer Mars Bars to Creme Egg :D
