Even if I didn’t blog a great deal, or have a particularly eventful July, in the spirit of getting my blogging hat back on, here is the best of last month:
Hello how we doing on this hot Thursday afternoon? So yesterday I went to Greenwich for my Mum’s birthday and we had a really lovely, relaxing time. I actually took a bit of a break from my camera yesterday, sometimes I need a rest from my toy as its become such an everyday item for me lately. However when I saw the transformation of the city’s lovely old park I had to snap a few, quick shots of my only ‘in person’ glimpse of the 2012 Olympics. I thought I could just share them with you on my blog.
Hey I’ve had the best day for a while today! The sun was shining and I spent the day with my Mum and Dad in Greenwich. We finally managed to go out for a few hours and take our mind off things a little. We spent the morning looking around the market.
I love Greenwich Market!
To me it always feels like you’re getting a little taste of the city because you can see some of the skyline and buildings of London like the O2, however its just far enough away from the city that it doesn’t have the whole hustle and bustle.
The market itself always tickles my pickle because its full of stalls with food cooking and little gems and accessories. My two favourite things obviously
Actually, the market wasn’t as full with stalls as it was the last time we went back in March. Usually, the space in the market is jammed with stalls selling many different nationalities of foods, which all smell so delicious. Today there was actually quite a bit of room and there weren’t as many people milling about either. The atmosphere was still lovely though.
After browsing all of the nick-nacky stalls selling food, arts and crafts, clothes, jewellery and so on it was time to move on. It was coffee time! More precisely it was Costa time
Todays order was a medium iced mocha, enjoyed down by the water over looking the city views. Iced coffee, sunshine, city views = happy Grace.
I also snacked on a mini-muffin. It was very indulgent.
We finished the morning in Greenwich with a delightful stroll around the park. There was a slight breeze and the temperature in the shade was perfect. I must say I never would have imagined I would be wearing a summery skirt on the 2nd October in England
It really was a wonderful day!
It was time to call it a day in Greenwich. Our next stop was at the gym, where I had a 30 minute session on the cross trainer ( and I burned that muffin off ) and then a dip in the pool. By the time we hit the pool my whole body wasn’t responding very well so I just chilled out in water. It was lovely
Little treats from today:
A delicate hand made leather coin purse. For Christmas my mum and dad got me the exact same purse in pink which I keep in my car for change and I absolutely adore it, so I was pleased when I saw the same leather stall was still at the market today. The material is gorgeous, its so soft and delicate.
I enjoy the intricate little details. Makes it so pretty.
And two scarves that were really reasonable.
Today has been a very good omen for the rest of October. I’m going to try my best to enjoy this month and make it a good one! Have a good week x
