brunch with a view

Saturday 7 June - London

So it was off for Jamie's homecooked brunch
Bit of shopping on the way in Stoke Newington High Street - temptations galore . . .
 Then a relax with the Saturday papers 
for some of us anyway - ha ha (we did help - honest!)
 The terrace at the back is just incredible - such a secret haven in this great city

 So as the sun was blazing hot, we set out the patio stuff
 and relaxed around this beautiful flat

 til suddenly it was all systems go

 and a delicious nosh al fresco
 Yes, I know, comedy!  But it got too hot for me so we had to make do with a G2 hat!!
Then a dash across to Highbury to catch the tube to Piccadilly Circus
and the amazing Zedel - an immediate immersion into all things French and Art Deco

Fabulous meal with Creme Brulee to die for - then over Waterloo Bridge (with the best view in London to left and right) to the Southbank
for the bloodthirsty
fabulous entrance
 and the truest of warnings!!!!  More on Titus here
no photos allowed til the end of course, but an amazing theatre
 and the magnificence of the mighty Thames by night as we left
which brought to mind this song I just LOVED as a child (never heard the intro before though!).
We used to sing it heartily on family hikes in Wales - I'd never even glimpsed the Thames then!!

and so to bed, to sleep - perchance to dream (yes, wrong play I know!)

And our final day was Sunday - how the weekend sped by - read on for more

(This Saturday was part of a whole wonderful weekend in London, so if you want to start at the beginning - click here for Friday )
