Busy Weekend Again!

DH and I had to pop down to London again last weekend so we went on Friday evening and spent Saturday and Sunday there.  The heatwave had broken so it was nice and warm but not roasting.  Here are a few pictures.

After the appointment at 9.00am on the Saturday we went to Borough Market. It is somewhere I had always wanted to look round.  It is like Covent Garden used to be before it became trendy.  The above building is The Hop Exchange.

The entrance to the market under the railway.

Next door to the Market is The Shard.

As you can see here it is built in, around and under the railway.

Outside one of the many places to eat.

I just love the old signs under the railway arches.

I just love the ironwork which holds the roof and walls up.

I just love looking around at all the old buildings.  They don’t have any particular history just that they are old and I love the shapes etc.

It was still warm so DH and I got drinks from a stall which was watermelon and it was great.

Across from the drinks stall was this fish stall which looked very clean and fresh.  As you can see the crabs were definitely fresh!!

Saturday evening I had another of these wonderful cocktails!  We also walked down the road from the hotel to a lovely Chinese Restaurant and passed this on the way. 

The Boys’ favourite Author.

We had a lovely evening.  On Sunday we drove back and then went out for Sunday lunch with our good friends from the village.  It really was a very decadent weekend!!!!  Of course Monday came round quickly and back to work and all the washing and ironing and meetings!!!!!!  Hey ho. 

Today is Girlfriend’s 21st Birthday and we are out, again, tonight for dinner with her.  Tomorrow is home jobs day and Friday I am having another day off (!) and am off to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham so will have more pictures to show you. 

Over the weekend DH is busy both days with a swimming competition.  Speaking of which our very own Olympian, Jacob Whittle, did really well in Tokyo coming 13th in the 100m Free which for 16 years of age is a great achievement and Molly Renshaw began her journey today with the heats of the 200m Breaststroke. 

I hope you lovely lot had a great weekend and a good week.  Can’t believe it is Friday soon. 

Hugs & Love, Susie & Treacle xx

Treacle loves it now it is cooler again and was having a Woofy Day as you can see from the look on her face!!!!!

    Oh, that iron work would make some great quilting!!! What a lovely time you had in London and it was fun for me to recognize some of the buildings in your pictures – The Shard is so distinctive! I want to go to the Birmingham quilt show again…I need more than just one day to see it!! Hard to believe it has been 8 years since I was there!! Treacle is looking so smart!!
