On the Gifville desk right now, I have a American one-cent coin, dated 2014, which I found on the stairs of my office in Fitzrovia. I collect coins and interestingly the first coin I added to my collection was a cent coin just like the one in the GIF above. I found it while rummaging through tins of loose change my Mum kept circa 1997.
Today it’s a Monday. Normally it’s the beginning of the working week, so everyone is walking around with glum looks, but in the UK it is a bank holiday, so no work. Sadly the weather is even more miserable than office dudes on a Monday morning.
A gentle waterfall slowly but surely cascades onto rocks below as the late afternoon sun shines overhead. A warm and relaxing GIF for you all as the days begin getting shorter. Just as it is, that last drop of summer.
This Sunday and tomorrow (the August Bank Holiday weekend), west London plays host to the Notting Hill Carnival, a celebration of great Caribbean food, dance, music, culture and camaraderie. Everyone wants to get their ‘dutty wine’ on and even the police officers in attendance are not immune to some calypso high jinks, assuming they didn’t first down six-packs of Red Stripe on duty.
