How to lift your spirits when the sun doesn't come out....
Well, i don't know about you but the weather here has been awful - grey and dull, so what is there to do on a day like that? We made the effort and had a trip to London to Borough Market - somewhere i have wanted to go for ages and i am so glad we made the effort. Knowing we were entertaining family for Easter we made a foody shopping list and came away with some amazing goodies - and for the first time in ages were pleasantly surprised by the prices! It was very crowded but a great day out. Even my son loved being handed free samples everywhere he went !
I treated myself to a lovely bouquet of my favourite flowers which now sits on my Easter table and was amazed to have plenty of change from my £20 note. Have you seen these roses - they are incredible. I don't know how to describe the colour, kind of dirty pink tinged with green. Real vintage roses and absolutely beautful, i think they are called Amnesia but feel free to correct me if i am wrong. Since blogging is a new delight for me i couldnt help take pictures of some of the lovely things I saw to help me remember my day. It was a bit tricky as i only took my phone and tried not to get any bystanders in the shot as they may not have appreciated that. Anyway, see what you think, and i recommend it to any foodies for a great day out. I then came home and had fun playing with my dining room table (yes thats very sad isnt it and sounds a bit suspect but you know what i mean). My husband thinks i am nuts, but it meant he could watch the football in peace.
Maybe next time i write i will have worked out how to upload photos within the text - they all seem to jump to the beginning of the blog how frustrating aaaaah i need a gin and tonic now. Hope you all have a lovely Bank Holiday Monday!
