Life in London

I’ve had a great week in London. It ended on a high with a fantastic day at work on Friday followed by celebratory drinks, a Saturday afternoon catching up with good friends in London, a quiet Saturday night playing cards at home and a Sunday spent south of the river in Bermondsey (really regretting not visiting Pizarro again now!).

It feels so good to get out and about in the city again, just in time for summer. I may have overdone it a little this week as my leg really aches, but I couldn’t help myself. I have so much to catch up on. I’ll take it easy this week but when I was sofa-bound I promised myself that I’ll say yes to every opportunity that comes my way – and I’m not forgetting that promise in a hurry.

Here are a few photos from my week:

Loving my five year journal – I’ve been filling it in religiously on a daily basis; tackling the make-up drawer and having a good clear out. The first eyeshadow I ever bought? Bye bye.

Can you miss a station? Because I really missed Blackfriars and the view from the Northbank entrance; the cutest bag for Father’s Day.

Lazy afternoon drinking Pimms with friends; tackling an epic list of stuff to do at work and drinking far too much coffee from my favourite mug (although it’s impossible to keep calm when you’re a Spurs fan).

Playing Kalooki on Saturday night (this hand even produced my first ever Kalooki!); getting up to no good in a gallery on Sunday.

Have a great week, Carla

Sunday Selection

My first Sunday Selection of 2014… I wonder what I’ll be reading on the Internet this year.

On the topic of a new year, a resolution of mine is too take more photos. Here are a few snapshots I’ve shared on Instagram in the last few weeks:


Clockwise, L-R: Freud Museum, Pret-a-Portea, British Museum, Grain Store

A number of London fire stations closed this week. That’s a lot of Londoners without a local fire station now. Spitalfields Life paid a visit to Clerkenwell fire station and I found the subsequent blog quite emotional http://spitalfieldslife.com/2014/01/09/so-long-clerkenwell-fire-station/

Loving this Romeo and Julienned board http://www.theliterarygiftcompany.com/romeo–julienne-chopping-board-14737-p.asp

I will be making these peanut chicken quinoa bowls for my lunch this week http://iowagirleats.com/2014/01/06/thai-peanut-chicken-quinoa-bowls/

I too am tired of no reservation restaurants, but I think I’ll make an exception for Flat Iron http://www.theaccidentallondoner.com/2014/01/accidental-eats-flat-iron.html

Have a great week!
