Bank holiday weekend pursuits...

The lovely long bank holiday weekend is drawing to a close. This year I stayed in London and...

Enjoyed Friday night cocktails with colleagues at the Champagne Bar at One New Change

Home in time to catch the first episode of Parade's End on the BBC - loved it!

A trip to the local library on Saturday morning

Joined friends for a fabulous vegan lunch on Saturday

Temporarily braved the Saturday afternoon storms on Kew Green in an attempt to visit the Kew Horticultural Show - unfortunately we only made it around 1/3 of the stalls before admitting defeat and retiring to the closest pub (completely sodden)

Made the most of Sunday's sunshine - a river walk in the morning, and time spent in South Kensington in the afternoon

Started knitting a little cardigan for C's sister, whose baby is due in October

Pottered around the flat this morning catching up on chores

Headed to Hampstead this afternoon, with a lovely stop off at Gail's bakery for a coffee, tiny raspberry financier and people watching in Hampstead High St, followed by a potter around the book shop.

All in all, a lovely relaxing London prepares itself for the start of the Paralympics on Wednesday. Next weekend I'll be back in the thick of the sporting action with tickets for swimming and athletics - now just hoping that the weather remains as fabulous as it was for the Olympics...
