Best blogs of the week
Yes London! It’s Friday, the weekend is looking set to be an absolute scorcher and there’s the whopping great Olympic closing ceremony to look forward to on Sunday!
To send you on your merry way, we’ve picked our favourite articles from the web and placed them right here for you to look at.
We read with much fascination Londoneer‘s recent piece on the rather bizarre Military and Flying Machines Show at Damyns Hall Aerodrome. No, this isn’t a relaxing day out at your local air show – it’s more akin to the film set of Platoon.

We’ll let the images do the talking…

Exuding a titillating magic, The Night Market is the perfect way to spend your Thursday evening; sip a cold beer by the lock, browse the stalls without jostling for every square in inch of pavement and tuck into the tasty array of food on offer! Let Cool on Demand swing your decision…
