Back in London again!

It has been a few weeks since my previous post, but I did not have much to write about.

One interesting thing, we had a little break the weekend before last, another weekend in London, this time with my better half… it was gorgeous spring weather, we were so lucky.

Any trip we take always involves f – o – o – d .
On Friday it already started in the train from the airport to Victoria Station: a little detour to the M&S shop at the airport for a snack on the train:

Once checked into the hotel we first went for a lovely lunch at Lebanese restaurant Comptoir, not only was the food great, but the atmosphere as well:

When I am in London with my husband our first visit is usually to Denmark Street where the guitar shops are located

After that we went to The British Museum, which I wanted to visit for years already,
because of this, the Great Court and it was spectacular!

And just like the Victoria and Albert Museum, no entry fee, you can visit the museum for free (you can leave a donation), can you imagine that in our country?
On Saturday I spent time in the cellar of Shaukat again, that Alladin’s cave filled with Liberty fabrics, I got some nice scraps:

Lunch at the Farmer’s Market on King’s Road, yes, the oyster truck was there again!
The afternoon was spent here:
And dinner was at our favourite Indian restaurant, Massala Zone
Sunday we woke up to another sunny day, this was the view from our hotelroom that morning:
When the weather permits we usually go for a long walk on Sunday morning in London and I can never resist pictures of those London entrances, I love them!

And in case you were wondering, yes, we were in London the same weekend as my fellow Feathergirl Hubertine and it really was a coincidence we booked this trip in the same weekend, we had a good laugh when we found out a few weeks before!
So now it’s back home and back to handquilting my Jacob’s Ladder, which is another reason for not writing a lot on my blog, this just takes a long time but I do want to concentrate on it as much as I can, can’t let this become a ufo!
Just like in my London pictures I see the sun is out again now, enjoy!

  6. Dat is een heerlijk weekend geweest. Ik zou daar ook wel graag eens willen rondkijken!

  7. Zoals ik ook al bij Hubertine schreef, londen is een heerlijke stad! Een stad om regelmatig naartoe te gaan. Hotels moesten alleen qua prijs en kwaliteit wat meer zijn afgestemd.
    Lekker nagenieten.

    The British Museum is one place I have to visit too.
