But that is the past:
"Make it a rule of life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy; you can't build on it; it's only for wallowing in."
- Katherine Mansfield
So after one last glance back, it is now time to look forward and to shape my own destiny.

A few days out in London saw a trip to both the Boatshow and a ‘London Prepares’ event. I have never seen gymnastics live so a night at the O2 (or whatever they are calling it for the Olympics) was a real treat.
|One of the many attractions at the Boatshow this year.|
The event was well organised and each discipline was run like clockwork. It was great to see a Brit take the gold medal on the final event of the evening - the men’s horizontal bar, a great omen for the Olympics later this year.

Sorry about the pics not being up to standard, but they were taken on my phone and the lighting wasn’t great.

Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But dammit how Happy we'll be!!
(from the interesting thoughts of Edward Monkton)
