Columbia Rd (again!)

The sun woke me at 4.51am so by 7am I was raring to go somewhere!
The minute Henrik stirred I had him up,in the car and at Columbia Rd
Flower Market eating bacon rolls. We bought a little lemon tree and succulents
to feed my newest obsession!

Sunny Saturday

The weather in London is amazing. We had an early French toast breakfast in
the garden and now we are just hanging out enjoying the heat (while it lasts!)

Friday at home

After having my mum staying this week I was in need of a day to potter around at home and thats just what I did. I lay in the garden reading Swedish Home magazines (actually I just looked at the pictures, cause I cant really read Swedish but can pick up a few words as they are similar to Norwegian) Back to school on Monday, then only seven weeks til the summer holidays!!!

The thing is......

the plan was to make these as presents for friends but every time I make one I
now keep it! Looking forward to Friday as school ends for half term plus it is
a bank holiday so I think a little weekend trip is in order.

Happy Birthday Norway

Today we went to the Norwegain Constitution day celebrations here in London. Its nice to see how other countries do it (seeing as though England has no day of celebrations for anything) Henrik then made waffles for our friends-Norsk Stylie!

Lynton & Lynmouth

We explored these 2 lovely Somerset villages last weekend. Lynmouth
is known locally as "Little Switzerland" and Lynton is right next door and
requires a water powered train up a very steep hill to get there, it was worth
the effort though!

My birthday evening

We had a birthday dinner with our good friends. They made me a delicious
birthday cake.

Exmoor, Devon

We headed down to Devon at the weekend and stayed at Julia and Anthonys lovely house. Again we got lucky with beautiful weather and travelled all around Exmoor and the Somerset coast and I introduced my Norwegian to the very British "Ploughmans lunch"!

A Camp

We saw the wonderful A Camp last night. They were great.
I love Nina Persson and she had a stage presence that I really
never expected. Amazing.

My new hobby

After buying one of these cute little plants in a tea cup and saucer last week for my friend Elise (hello, love!) I knew I needed one for myself but there was no way I was driving back to Kent to buy one so instead I made a few myself! On a whim we drove up to Liverpool on Saturday afternoon to see my mum and on Sunday I hunted around Bygone Times for tea cups and saucers ( I found MANY as you will see in the picture above!) and then off to the garden centre for succulents,soil and little pebbles and I spent the rest of the day making and giving them to my mum and lovely step-sister Jenny. Very satisfying!
