A Big Ferris Wheel On The South Bank

28 Mar

My husband Andy and I had an evening and a day out on our own last week, alone, without Henry who stayed home with my Mum! It was the first time I have stayed a night away from the little man as I kept feeling the need to point out during the very lovely dinner we had at Richoux in Mayfair and I surprised myself at what a big deal it felt like (I was away for a grand total of 23.5 hours)!

It was a much needed break from reality though and so wonderful to spend some time hanging out with my best friend on our mini adventure. We slept late (8.15am!), had a long leisurely breakfast in the hotel, read books and just caught up. We decided to forgo an real culture vulture activities and all the pressure to be clever that goes along with them and instead went for a ride on the London Eye and took in some these magnificent views from a new angle. We wandered along the South Bank, nosed in bookshops and when I asked Andy what he most wanted to do that we couldn’t normally do with Henry in tow he said ‘The thing we never achieve at home since having baby is having time to eat a whole meal, eat slowly and take as long as we want.’ So we had an enormous lunch in a great restaurant overlooking the Thames before catching the train back to Sussex.
It was perfect.

A lovely day in Lewes

22 Mar

Here are the latest photos I shot with my new upgraded camera and reconditioned lens, hooray! A friend and I went for a day out in Lewes in East Sussex. We had a really yummy lunch at Bill’s and had a good nose around the many antique and charity shops of this beautiful old market town.



Lewes is one of the best places in the whole wide world to poke about antique shops!

Admiring the Spring daffodils, as lovely as they are I don’t think I want to pay £2 for a bunch of flowers that are currently growing on every patch of green in the country. There must be about 150 quids worth in the back garden right now!


Ah, the equinox when it is neither Winter nor Spring and we can have sunny flowers and root veggies at the same time… Continue reading

My trusty camera which is never normally far from my reach has had to go to camera hospital this week. I will miss him terribly but wish him a speedy recovery and am keeping my fingers crossed that he is home and fighting fit soon!

(My camera is a ‘he’ don’t ask me why, it just seems rude to refer to him as an ‘it’ don’t you think?)
