A few weekends ago, I met up with friend of my sister’s for a little day trip out to London. We went to the Small is Beautiful Miniature Art Exhibition in South Kensington. I have been their previously in April with a friend and her family and I thought it was wonderful. So wonderful in fact that a poster adorned the wall of my study with one of the pieces of art I liked from the exhbition.
Afterwards we went for a late lunch at a little place called Greenspeares. I had a green juice and an omelette. The food was nothing to write home about and just about pictureworthy but the venue was cute! It was just the type of place prepandemic and pre our descent into the new world madness that I would have loved to have sat in by myself, minding my own business ideling the hours away. I might come back one day.
We then leisurely walked towards our next place to eat and walked past what I thought was another gallery – Smallbone, I think they do luxury kitchens. Well it was an excuse to go somewhere cool and escape the heat and look at some fancy furniture and art…
Our final destination was L’eto. I’ve never been there before and I was pleasantly surprised. Cakes cakes and more cakes. I had a peach bellini and a pistachio milk cake. Now they were both tasty and picture worthy.
And then all of a sudden the day was over.
It was a kind of indulgence to be able to do this – again – so freely, given what is happening in the rest of the world and in my own country. So I don’t take these freedoms and liberties lightly or for granted. I’m grateful that other people do want to spend time with me!
Until the next time.
