Its Raining its Pouring…

So its been raining – not a lot to do when it is raining, or at least I think thats the popular assumption.

Could be really boring and go to the Cinema, Ice skating or bowling, but I’ve done all that a thousand times already!! Personally I think everyone goes to Westfeild when it rains.

I often wondered how buisness was crossing the constantly empty slip road on my way across our brand spanking new (albiet 50 years late) access bridge across the A40 – no one ever seems to be driving in or out of Westfield – but come the rains? my gosh it is like they are qeuing to get out of Glastonbury.

I find it totally annoying that when I attempt to use this route on the way home on a night out, which is quite frequently at the monement with the constant closures and works at Latimer road tube when all the Westfeild security gaurds at 20 metre intervals, ask me what I think I am doing – Walking home I say. Last time, the finally one near the bridge lift told me I would ‘they would kill me there’ – the cars at the top, or my fellow estate residents? He then informed me I wasn’t allowed to use this path. Why build a bridge if you are going to pester everyone that wants to use it? – and as I informed him that access path and birdge to my Estate and the rest of North Kensington was compulsary to the building of the centre, planning was refused until it was there. FACT – that totally shut him up although I am still interested to find out who exactly was going to kill me *rolls eyes*

ANYWAY….

I’ve been wondering what The Serpentine Pavillion looks in the rain, I go every year on a nice warm summers day, and take an abundance of photos, is it as cool in the rain? I wonder – am aiming to find out this weekend.


So this weekend, if it rains – I will be taking another look at Jean Nouvel’s Red Pavillion, getting away with NOT watering my garden, and probably not joining the rest of the City in Westfeild… what are you up to?

    There’s not a lot to do each weekend around our area. The flat’s usually clean and tidy and rather small, so heading to the westend of an evening and Tottenham Court Road on a Saturday is usually a must. I love the hustle and bustle of the streets and sitting in a coffee shop, watching the world go by. It’s a great way to inspire writing.
