I am super happy to announce that Bleak House is OPEN!
Please drop by and take a look. I would love to know what you think. Link in profile.
It's a LBB at the moment (little bit beta) and so please feel free to tell me if there are any typos, things that don't make sense or things that don't work.
I hope you love it! πŸ’› (Thank you to @weareabo for the fab graphic)

In Sunday we accidentally happened across the May Day festival at Little Venice.
This quiet, tranquil and pretty part of the canal was absolutely jam packed with narrow boats, people, dogs and there was even a jazz band. All of the boats were festooned with bunting and the Bishop of London was there to bless the boats.
Such a lovely, joyful, quirky and quintessentially English tradition. πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›

Yesterday the weather was so fabulous we cycled from Primrose Hill to Chelsea, via the canal to Notting Hill, through Holland Park and then Hyde Park. It's incredible how far one can cycle through London along car-less routes and quiet roads.
We ended our ride with lunch at the utterly fabulous Colbert in Sloane Square where we are croques and drank an ill advised but delicious glass of wine. There's not much better than eating great food when you know you have really earned it. 🚴🏻🍽🍷

The dangers of Instagram. I blame @doesmybumlook40 and @thefashion_lift for this. 'Oh no you've got them dirty already' said husband. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Last week I had dinner at one of London's most talked about new restaurants, @padella_pasta in Borough Market.
Baby sister to the much loved Trullo in Islington, this cute pasta bar is the perfect place for lunch or a post-work catch up with a friend.
The menu is simple, pared back and it's very hard to decide what to have. The pasta is unmistakably handmade and utterly delicious. So good that one could easily have it just with a little butter and forgo the sauce.
Portions are small (as pasta should be) but surprisingly filling and, as nothing costs more than £10, it's perfectly possible to have lunch with a glass of wine for £15. Expect queues at popular times as there are no reservations. 🍷

My new obsession are the fabulous cushions at @firmdale_hotels Haymarket Hotel by Kit Kemp. They are boiled wool and I think they are by @finecellwork which is a social enterprise that trains prisoners in needlework in order to foster hope, discipline and self esteem.

For Christmas my husband gave me this gorgeous Astier mug @benoitastierdevillatte @astierdevillatte from @liberty_london and it's pretty much one of my favourite possessions.
But yesterday I picked it up and the cup detached from the handle and smashed on the floor spilling hot coffee all over me. Heartbroken 😰

Yesterday Richard and I did our first ever bike ride together (we've only been together seven years πŸ™ˆ). We cycled from Primrose Hill to Wapping, had some cider then cycled back. We went the entire way along the canal, other than the Islington tunnel of course. It feels like an entirely different city, utterly devoid of cars and stress and it was really rather lovely.

It's clearly an excellent idea to have cider and beer half way through a 15 mile bike ride. Shall be wobbling back from Wapping to Primrose Hill.
