Weekend Highlights

Oh, I love beautiful weekends...they are so refreshing!
What have you been up to? Tell me...

Rob and I have had a lovely couple of days in gorgeous London. The weather has been quite nice and we have been wandering around the city enjoying the loveliness. If you live in London or are visiting or planning a trip soon, I have two nice places to recommend:
1) National Portrait Gallery Restaurant I have always been a big fan of the National Portrait Gallery, it is such a cute, little museum. But what I really love about that museum is the lovely restaurant on the 4th floor which offers breathtaking views over London. The food is also very good: I totally recommend the sweet potato and leek frittata, to die for!
2) Daylesford Organic is a group of cafe', restaurants and shops that specialise in organic, fresh, seasonal and local food. They have several stores in London; we picked the cafe' in Pimlico and went there for brunch with our friends Steph and Andrew and absolutely loved it! The decor is beautiful and so relaxing. White is the predominant colour: tables, benches, flowers, candles, glasses...everything is pure white. I fell in love with their candles but I had to resist to buy one since the smallest one was 15 GBP! A bit pricey! I was also tempted to buy their beautiful glasses but my other, more rational half made me realise that we don't really have space for new glasses, so I will have to wait until we move to a bigger space. They are on my list though, I won't forget! Before leaving we stopped at the bakery on the ground floor and bought two giant cookies for the trip back home, they were divine! We'll be back Daylesford!

Now I can start the new week, I am regenerated.
