You might have noticed from my blogposts that I’ve been all over the place recently, but it’s starting to settle down and over the last few weeks I’ve been able to spend some time at home in London, enjoying the beautiful weather. I genuinely believe that if the weather in London was like this all the time, I would never want to leave. The city in summertime is just the most amazing place in the world, and I thought I’d share a few photographs to explain why…
1. Silently appreciating the view from my balcony – the way the river looks in the sunshine, and just watching little boats bob along , disappearing into the distance
2. I made a little sunbathing spot on my balcony one day and fell asleep in the sunshine – who says you need a garden?
3. London Southbank – I went for drinks with a good friend and as we walked we both said how beautiful everything looks in the sunshine
4 Drinking on the Thames – we visited a bar on a boat, taking advantage of the weather. It was busy, but everyone was in such a good mood that the vibe was actually just really nice. Afterwards we went to Gordon’s wine bar by Embankment where the barman gave us a free glass of wine!
5 Eating al fresco – pizza and a bottle of wine, with a riverside view, equals perfection
6 All the new bars popping up – look at this one at London Southbank, the so-called Festival of Love...
7 A beach by the river? Go on then.
8 Dragging my gerbils into the doorway so they can get some air – I think one of them enjoyed it, at least!
9 Paella and Eton Mess on the balcony, making a certain somebody very happy
10 Oh my sunset. I think these photographs speak for themselves.
These are the best days of our lives.
