Park Life & Pub Quizzes in Peckham

On Sunday I woke up tired and a bit hungover after my epic birthday night out. I wanted to delve back under the quilt for another 2 hours, but it was one of my best friends’ birthdays and I’d promised to go and meet her for a picnic in the park. I dragged myself out of bed and into printed trousers and dark sunglasses.

It was gorgeously hot outside and, discovering that TFL was wrong and  I could get the overground to Peckham, I soon cheered up. I arrived to find my friend in a great mood as her boyfriend had bought her an iPad for her birthday – so most of these photos are courtesy of her, and it!

When the boys had arrived, we headed to the park for birthday cake…

Cakes and brownies…

Scones with clotted cream and jam…

Prosecco in flasks for the girls, and beer for the boys.

It was such a gorgeous sunny day and we caught up and chatted until we decided it was time to break out the board games. I don’t care if it’s geeky – I love board games! We started with Pass the Bomb – an easy, hilarious one to start – before progressing to Articulate.

After a while, a bit tired of sitting on the floor, we made our way to a nearby pub garden. My boyfriend came to join us and we set up yet another board game – Cranium!

We were about to leave when the barman casually asked us if we were going to join in the pub quiz. Err…YES.

Oh – and we only went and won it!

We ate pub food, drank cider, sung Brit pop songs and laughed until the sun went down when we caught our overground train back into the city. London in the summer – I love you!
