+ homemade hummus, red onion and spinach sandwiches, packed up for a picnic
+ a walk through the woods
+ exploring the fabric shops of Goldhawk Road with the lovely Johanna – so much beautiful cloth we felt dizzy by the end!
+ a perfect Sunday afternoon: a walk followed by curling up on the sofa with tea and a book
+ porridge for breakfast (I’m embracing the chill)
+ tulips, tulips, everywhere
+ my hometown secret garden, a riot of spring colour
+ an Italian food crawl with my old flatmates (so nice to see you, E & H!)
+ making a feline friend walking home from the pool
+ and, for that matter, early morning swims
+ a Saturday morning date over cappuccinos and the newspaper
+ a Saturday night date at the Tate Modern (open until 10pm Fridays and Saturdays, go wild!)
+ followed by spontaneous, and delicious, fish + chips (salt + vinegar, yes please!)
+ Margaret Forster’s My Life In Houses, a lovely meandering read
+ and the library, for it will never amaze me that books (so. many. books.) are all ripe for the reading, and totally free
Have a lovely week, folks!
