Around WC1

These are actually from August, but I forgot about them! That shows you how on the ball I am at the moment.

My friend Simon and I went on an adventure to Barnes to visit the London Wetland Centre. We saw a lot of ducks (and some swans and a couple of otters) and got rained on and had a very nice time.



Keeping Mum

I like hanging out at my mum’s house. From the constant buzz of north London to that tiny residential sliver where (so-called) London meets countryside, it’s a welcome break. My mum has always loved flowers, as you can see from her garden above. It’s the perfect place to sit with the dog (I may post pics another time) when everyone else is out.



Drink, Shop & Do

One of the amazing people I am blessed to call my friends, Henna, took me on a tea and cake date as part of my birthday present. We chose Drink, Shop & Do as I love it there and Henna had never been. I can barely remember what cake I had as I basically inhaled it (something with caramel?), and Henna had a coconutty concoction that was really, really good. We also indulged in a teacup full of sherbet but hardly made a dent in it because, well, it was an entire teacup full of sherbet. Still, I do love it at Drink, Shop & Do. I’ve taken a few people there in the year and a half since I was introduced to it. I’ve also been to Early Doors Disco in their downstairs bar a few times as a couple of dear friends DJ there. Check it out! It’s pretty cool.



London Bridge way

I went on a little wander a few nights ago. I got off the bus early at Old Street and walked down to London Bridge (I’ve done that walk a few times and quite like it). Reaching London Bridge just after sunset, it looked really pretty so I took a few shots to share. I’m off to Barcelona in the morning for my annual long weekend jaunt with Sam, so I’m sure I’ll come back with some good photos!



A few more from Camden Passage

Most Islington residents (or wannabe Islington residents) will tell you they love Camden Passage. It’s cute, there’s a lot going on and there’s plenty to see, whether you want to eat, buy a necklace from a junk shop or ponder on some antique furniture.

Look where Bethany and I went today! I’d heard a few whispers about Issy’s Milky Way so we decided to check it out. It’s adorable. There are cupcakes and other sweet things, milkshakes and coke floats, toasties and a lovely waiter with a very tall quiff. We each got a milkshake and Bethany got an Elvis cupcake and we marvelled at the various kitsch wares for sale around us.
