London Marathon today – and I am locked into my flat. The sealing off of the roads around Docklands means I am quite literally unable to leave my flat until around 4pm this afternoon.

I used to be able to wander up to Westferry along the riverside path and escape that way, but building work has closed off the path – so I am now trapped.

I get a bit stir-crazy if I can’t get out of the flat for a short while at least once per day, so today is a tad difficult – but at least it is only one day per year.

Quite naturally, as I am trapped in the flat for one whole day – I visited the supermarket yesterday and stocked up on at least a weeks supply of food and water.

Still, if I find out when those Massi Mara runners are going past the flat I might stick my nose out of the door and take a photo of them.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
