A Wintery Weekend At Borough Market

1 Nov

It’s a rare occurrence, but this weekend was mine and mine alone. No neatly penned scribbles in the diary, no vague plans with the girls carried away into the air when we previously parted – nothing.

Exciting. I love the thought of a free weekend spanning out across the horizon with nothing interrupting it as it drifts away, and so I went about that brilliant hobby of making last minute plans to fill my day.

On Friday evening we decided, out of the blue, to go out in Camden. There was a bite in the breeze as the season is turning, but we had great fun drinking and dancing and talking with strangers. It just goes to show that when you are with your best friend, time passes too fast and very happily. No fair weather friends, just me and my partner in crime, having fun.

On Saturday we went to Borough Market. If you are based in London and haven’t been, or ever get to London, it’s a must. Lane upon lane of food stalls, the hustle and bustle of people browsing butchers and fishmongers, and the delightful smell of food stalls whetting your appetite and tantalising your taste buds. It was so hard not to stop at the first stall and chow down on paella, but luckily we resisted as we eventually came to a hog roast stand with cracking and applesauce. Yum!! We finished wandering the market and found an independent cafe to have some tea and warm our bones before heading out into the sleet to go home.

I woke early on Sunday, as the clocks had changed and took the train home to spend the day with two poorly little girls. We had great fun making pizza faces, watching movies and playing, with the kind of clingy cuddles that only sick kids give you, when they don’t want to be out exploiting and discovering, just having cosy cuddles.

How were your weekend? Seems like an age ago now!!

    My weekend was boring, just me and my mouse scrolling through the news and racing on ‘Motorstorm – Pacific Rift’.

    I REALLY need a new game! 🙂

    Love and hugs!

    Last weekend as our anniversary so we went swimming, then to dinner and saw Cloud Atlas. Not a bad Saturday night!

    Seems to me it’s a bit early for sleet out your way…

    I napped… a lot 🙂 Not the most exciting weekend in the world, but I have enough energy to run after the Man Child for days!

    Ooh I love Borough Market – sounds like a perfect weekend! I spent mine walking in the snow and stuffing my face with Milka, but you know that already! 😉 Thanks for stopping by my blog, I think yours is great!

    Let’s see… my weekend. My teenage daughter sang in a fundraising Gala – her first time singing solo in a big event like that. It was – traumatizing. For both of us! However, I think she recovered faster 🙂 Then a nice, quiet Sunday.
    Oh, I love “sick cuddles”… it was the only time my little sister would sit still in my lap; I always felt kind of bad for enjoying when she was sick, lol!

      You could say Danielle… It’s not my name though!! 🙂

      • Phil Gayle_For Singles and Couples November 10, 2012 at 8:21 pm #

        Lol! I think I saw that on your Twitter user name…or am I mistaken? 😉

        • tinkerbelle86 November 10, 2012 at 8:22 pm #

          Think you are mistaking me for someone else, my name’s Laura. My sister is Danielle

          • Phil Gayle_For Singles and Couples November 10, 2012 at 8:30 pm #

            Well that clears something up for me…lol! I need to get back on twitter and sort something out.
            Thanks Laura. 😉

              I actually mistook someone else for you on Twitter. 🙂

                No Harm done…I didn’t actually message the person on twitter…
                Never mind, I was tired yesterday…carried on visiting BLOGs when I should have called it a night (Hence the mix-up)…Never again. 🙂
