Back in January I was having a squiffy Monday dinner out with one of my oldest friend Cate. We were talking about my fabulist and she suggested doing London in style. So we set a date for end of November. Continue reading Doing London in Style – a tick off my fabulist
Rather than queue up with the commoners to have a drink in the Shard, we decided to book in for breakfast.
The Shard is at 309 metres the second tallest building in England and third tallest in Europe.

So no weekend would not be complete without los of eating!! It was lovely seeing Jake and seeing how well he is doing at Uni. On Friday night we ventured into St Albans, first stop The Snug for cocktails. Mojitos were in order. Next stop was Zizzis for dinner. Even being full of food and alcohol it was bloody freezing, it got down to -7 brrrr.
Next day, Jake was at work so we set off to Muswell Hill to see family. It’s so nice spending time with them. Then it was back to collect Jake to go into London town for the night. I do love London but it is just so busy. More cocktails and my first experience at a Nando’s! Went for medium and I like things spicy but oh my that was spicy.
On Sunday, wanted to go somewhere nice for lunch and decided on Smiths of Smithfields (John Torode’s Restaurant). It was delicious, the only downside was they forgot about our main course and were sat for an hour after our starter had been cleared away. It didn’t really matter as we were drinking chilled white wine and chatting. The Roast beef was well worth the wait. We got our pudding and coffee on the house.
A quick walk down to St Pauls and down to the Tate and it was back to drop Jake off, get the tissues out and head back to the North.
