London pt I

March 12, 2012

This weekend went by in a blur of smiles – so many little adventures and fun activities! It was the perfect present because it meant that we could get away and really celebrate our anniversary ♥
I have a handful of photographs and stories so I think I’ll break them up into a couple of entries. I don’t want to send you all to sleep…!

Friday evening I felt exhausted, both in body and with a weary head, so I headed to bed at around 9pm (I know; Rock and also, Roll). I jumped out of bed at 7am the next day feeling much better! Refreshed and ready to enjoy the weekend. Showering, packing, breakfast, checking my packing, tidying and cat cuddles filled the next 2hrs before we hopped on a train to Victoria. We randomly bumped into Rach at the station who was also heading up to London, and we spent the entire hour talking about gluten and other vegan products!

Luckily our hotel was right next to the station, so we dropped off our luggage and went straight to our first planned activity: London Aquarium! It was super fun to see Trout re-united with his brothers and we saw giant turtles and penguins!

Our tummies were rumbling by this point, so of course we had to pay a visit to Whole Foods! Twice in one week, I was in heaven! Again we spent plenty of time looking around the aisles, before stocking up on (more) peanut butter, Clif bars, a Cat & The Cream cupcake, a slice of raw banoffee pie made by Inspiral and some truffles from the counter! We both bought a salad tub for lunch too, delicious! Everything is so simple and healthy, I love it. When we had re-charged our tummies we went for a wander down to Kensington Gardens and watched people jogging and dogs jumping around, it was super nice just to stop and relax for a bit.

Not for long though, we decided it was time to hit the shops! Even though it was Saturday afternoon we decided that Oxford Street would be the best place to go shopping. Big. Mistake. I nearly fainted when I tried to look around Primark! Never again.

En route to Oxford Street we realised a little too late that the Central Line was closed and had to get off the tube at Notting Hill Gate. That’s not too far to walk, right? Wrong. We had to stop off at a pub for a re-juvinating pint. It was such a nice pub with a great selection of beers on tap, all with their own unique glasses. I love random pints! We also got to catch the end of the Wales vs Italy game, which was fun. Once we had walked the rest of the way and given up on the idea of shopping, it was time to head back to the hotel and check in.

I think I’ll have a brief pause now! I still have dinner at The Gate to tell you about, shopping, adventures and a wonderful dinner at Tibits to show you!

    Now Trout has had some banoffee pie, does that mean he’ll stop badgering me for some?
