Yesterday, my boyfriend passed his second CFA exam. For those of you who don’t know, the CFA is basically a really hard professional exam you can take if you work in the banking industry. It’s so tough to get through, he had to revise for six months and he did insanely well, not just passing but getting top marks in a lot of sections!
I was so proud that I immediately cancelled our planned evening of going to the gym (boring) and insisted on dragging us down to our lovely local, the Gun, for celebratory drinks with a view.
We’ve been to the Gun countless times since we moved in to our new flat, and I’ve blogged about it plenty of times too (notably here). So how had I not noticed it had a secret garden?!
It’s so pretty, with deck chairs and a yellow fence and a little ice cream stall. I wanted to put it all on Pinterest at once.
There’s even a table tennis table, where I roundly beat my boyfriend two games to one (and may have lost a table tennis ball in the process – sorry!)
I do think it’s a shame that the view is being blocked by a new hotel (WHO gave planning permission for that monstrosity?) but there’s no doubt it’s still so beautiful sitting there in the summer evenings, watching the sunset over the o2.
Days like yesterday I feel like a very lucky girl.
