Yes, London IS Amazing.
Yes, London is one of the greatest cities in the World.
But to many, London is just... home.
It's every day life of working and raising family.
These are typical East End, London flats...
Millions of people live in them
People from all over the world
The less glamorous side of London
I've been missing for a couple of days so first I want to thank Ms. George at Life at the Coop for my Liebster Award, Thank you for even thinking of me. And I will accept and do what is asked of me :) I'm currently visiting and with my partner right now, so as to not take away from our time, I have been hanging out and enjoying him at home in the East End. But I do look forward to accepting this.
So a sneaky little blogging while The Cockney watches man TV (sports).
For my American friends "Cockney" isn't a naughty word, it's a person that is from the East End of London. My partner was born and raised in the East End of London. He's cockney through and through. And I've even managed to learn a bit of cockney rhyming slang!
Today was the Broadway Market. I like markets, well... I like this one. There is a bit of everything and today was a crisp and cool day, just perfect if you ask me. I love the foggy wet days of England, MANY English people don't get this, but I live on the surface of the sun in Texas, so England is a brilliant treat!
Broadway Market... You can get fish..
I love Regents Canal... You must be able to duck and dive quickly with approaching bikers and joggers... but it's still one of my favorite places in London. This is where I go to just relax and think of ... absolutely nothing. It's my down time. Did I mention I love this place? It's not glamorous, it's not overly clean, it's not perfect. But it's perfect for me... My little slice of Regents Canal is near Pownel Road in Hackney, but it's actually over 8 miles long!

I hope you're having a great day,
