Reflect on Tired of London, Tired of Life's 2012

It's been another eventful year for Tired of London, Tired of Life, with a book largely based in this website hitting the shelves twelve months ago and keeping your author busy throughout the year with talks, interviews and pangs of anxiety. Thank you to everyone who felt willing to buy a copy of the book, which has surpassed your author's expectations, and is still available in all good bookshops for anyone wishing to discover new things in London in 2013.

Your author should also apologise for the change of topic over the last 50 days, but has been thoroughly enjoying filling in gaps of places he hadn't been in England, and unfortunately spending time wandering over brooding moors and along windswept coast paths doesn't facilitate the writing of blog posts on London. Hopefully normal service will be resumed by the end of January.

Many thanks again for your kind support during 2012. Quite apart from the Olympic Games it was a fantastic year to be in London, and whilst the hype seemed to see our city fall a bit flat in the summer, your author feels sure that 2013 will be one of the best years ever for London, with upcoming events such the 150th Anniversary of the Tube starting on 13 January, Life and death Pompeii and Herculaneum at the British Museum in the summer, Lowry at the Tate Britain from Jun - Oct, a summer opening of the gardens of Buckingham Palace to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Queen's Coronation. All for a fraction of the price of the only available ticket to the Olympic horse-prancing.

  1. Glad to hear the book is doing well. I spotted a copy of it on the shelves at my sister's house earlier this year! (Nothing to do with me — I think they just saw it in a bookshop and thought it looked good.)
