RED Market Shoreditch – a cool little pop up food/drink market near Old Street. Could have done with a few more bars and food stalls though!
Exploring Greenwich – I have spent a lot of time in Greenwich recently looking at flats and it is really worth a visit! There is a beaut park, lots of naval history and a fab market at the weekends.
Notting Hill Carnival – as mental and busy as always!
Bank Holiday in Hampstead – if you live in London but want to go somewhere that doesn’t feel like London, then get yourself to Hampstead Heath! We had never been before but it was a really lovely, salubrious area and the park is amazing – there is even part of the lake where you can swim. And we spotted Ricky Gervais and Emily Blunt – bonus.
Picking blackberries – it seems to be the perfect time to pick some blackberries so I decided to dust off my (very unused) oven gloves and try making a blackberry and apple crumble – and it worked!
Brunch at The Riding House Cafe – Such a popular restaurant that you definitely need to book in advance! It was full of fashionable, cool people and had a really good menu, though I have to say my poached eggs/smoked salmon on toast was a bit disappointing – the eggs were overdone so were a bit like boiled eggs and the toast felt almost stale. Jen’s was amazing though, so maybe it depends what your order!
