The green leaves from the garden (Beetroot, rainbow chard and spinach)
The other flavours (plum, apple, ½ avocado, 1 tbsp sesame seed and an aloe vera leaf)
Blended with 150 ml almond milk and 150 ml water. The consistency was perfect but the flavour was rather bland. I ate it anyway to benefit from all those fresh ingredients.
I received some very lovely comments about how much better I am looking these days so here is another picture of me with my cherubs. We went on an hour long walk in the woods and fields opposite us.
The bluebells are beginning to come out and the sunshine was so warm it was beautiful out there today.
After walking through the woods and across the fields we came out on a lane near our house.
This is a new walk for us (thank you Annette for showing it to us) and I had never realised we were so surrounded by sheep farms!
I enjoy living in the country and wouldn’t swap it for living in the city but I love visiting London. We had to go up today to take Lara to King’s Cross as she is heading back to University 😦 . Her train was at 4pm so we got there in time for lunch.
We went to Ciao Bella, an Italian restaurant on Lamb’s Conduit Street which is near Great Ormond Street Hopsital. We have often eaten here and it is near King’s Cross so convenient. And appropriately named too I have just realised as I often call Lara “Bella”. We were served mixed olives and Parmesan when we sat down. This was to share by the way, not each!
I had chicken with blue cheese and salad which was delicious
followed by veal escaloppe, broccoli, carrots and chips. A lovely treat. Helped along with a couple of glasses of wine.
I ♥ my children.
Before we knew it, we had to rush off so Lara could catch her train. Does saying good-bye ever get any easier?
King’s Cross station has an extraordinary roof! I ♥ the roof. Even better – it changes colour. Awesome.
And of course, the very famous platform 9 and ¾ !
We were not in a rush to get home, the weather was fine so we decided to amble back to Charing Cross station. We went in to the
and admired this enormous statue of Newton.
This is the British Library with St.Pancras in the background.
The area South of King’s Cross is so peaceful and quiet with pretty residential streets which have a mixture of architectural styles.
What number is this house? Every door in this crescent had 2 numbers on the door.
We walked along quaint shopping streets.
Past this memorial plaque
and in to Tavistock Square.
A statue of one of my all time most admired people.
I enjoy being in Bloomsbury as it has so many happy memories for me from being a student here. Wandering around is great fun when you don’t have to be in a particular place by a set time. It gives you time to stop and look at things you pass and like. Such as these spring flowers in the black London railings
and this clock with little characters chasing each other round the bottom.
Nearly at one of my favourite areas of London,
Monmouth Street and Seven Dials. I ♥ Seven Dials. It is busy and bustley here but not jam packed. The shops are unique and interesting boutiques and there are several lovely coffee and cake shops – which I veered away from today.
We wandered in to the colourful craziness of Neal’s Yard.
It is so colourful and fun here.
Round the corner is the amazing cheese shop but I resisted. Still too full from lunch rather then managing to exert will power. Check out those truckles! I ♥ cheese.
We walked towards Trafalgar Square,
past the stunning Coliseum, home of the English National Opera.
After a delightful 2 hour meandering walk, we arrived at Charing Cross station where we caught our train home.
We were home by 7pm. What’s for supper? Nothing – we are all too full from lunch still. Apart from saying good-bye to Lara, which I hate doing, we had a great time pottering about in London. It really is such an amazing city. I ♥ London.
