I moved out of Brixton/Clapham North in about 2002,  when a two bedroom flat, infested with mice and cockroaches (not to mention the drug den opposite us and the shootings on our doorstep) was £800. Not sure I'd cough up over a grand for that, but there was excellent jerk chicken nearby.

Week 26, aka. Last Week Until July

We're yet to know just how bad the situation in Nepal is, but safe to say it's far worse than we think it is. With focus seemingly solely on Katmandu, you can't help but wonder how things must be outside of the capital. It's just awful. We can but hold our breath for more moments like this 4 month-old baby being found alive, 22 hours after the building he was in collapsed (or this 15 year-old boy being found 5 days after).

So this is the last week of internet before I, together with wife and our almost 5 month-old boy, head off to Thailand for two months. It's been a very busy week, with unexpected news (of the good kind), and very little time to prepare. It's a bank holiday here tomorrow - thankfully - so I'll be rushing around trying to pack and clean the flat before heading off on Saturday. We've got people staying in our flat for the entire time, which is comforting. I just hope they water my bay leaf tree which has finally started growing. 

Anywho, look at this stadium being turned from a basketball court to an ice-hockey rink. It's pretty neat, as they say over there. 

If you follow me on Instagram you'll know I like beer. IPAs in particular. Here's a handy beer chart to address all your beer questions (get a HUGE version here).

Yes, that's the joke is a great tumblr unwittingly made up by people who don't get the joke. 

You might have heard all the furore surrounding Protein World's 'beach body ready' poster. Carslberg are rather good at newsjacking, and really nailed it this time. 

LEGO fan? Good. You'll like this then. 

I love old stuff. Like my dad (hello, dad). If you like old stuff, old film about London in particular, you'll like this. 

Here's a nice thing to end on. Sorry things are a bit rushed this week, but times are busy. If you're vaguely interested in our travels, head to Jaw to keep an eye on how we're managing. Adios!
