Yesterday was the last day of games at the Basketball Arena. Some people might not know that the Arena is a temporary venue and will disappear from the skyline of East London.
Yesterday we had a real summer’s day in London and so I went for a stroll on the park. I returned to the National Lottery Showcase and the photos have been updated.
I overheard a lady say the photography was amazing. I thought the poem was pretty special. It is called Breathe. A colleague called Marcus was at the Showcase and got me to complete the quiz, I got 5 out of 7 question correct.
I then went to chill before my game at 6.30pm. I was sat on a bench knitting when two armed police asked what was I knitting and knew there was a knit and purl stitch.
It was a day of emotions knowing things in East London will never look or be the same. But life must go on and I am officiating another game today.
