A sunny weekend in London

London is just so glorious in the sun, it is such a shame that clear bright days seem to grace us so infrequently here.  We are hopefully emerging from what has been one of the longest and coldest winters since records began. This last weekend of glorious sunshine was an unbelievable treat.

Marc has been working so hard these past few weeks and he hasn’t been able to see Abigail much at all. Time together has also been sparse, so he decided to make it up to us this weekend and we enjoyed a really intimate and indulgent weekend as a little family of three.

We went to my favourite street in London – Marylebone High Street, a street filled with fabulous cafes, lovely boutiques selling antiques, cookware, homeware linens, beautiful French clothing… honestly, I could spend a fortune there! My particular downfall is a speciality cookware shop called Divertimenti. I am currently coveting some All-Clad pans and some Provencal bowls.

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch at a fish restaurant, and took a leisurely walk in the sun. We then walked to Regent’s Park, the most beautiful park in London in my opinion. I love Paris as much as the next person, but London is unrivalled in terms of open spaces. There is even a zoo in Regent’s Park, as well as playing fields, a huge rose garden, a univeristy, an open air theatre, not to mention beautiful architecture… I love it.

We spent the remainder of the day sprawled on the lawn in our garden.

It was so special to have time together, time which is too sparse at the moment for my liking.

I couldn’t love these photos of Marc and Abigail any more – just look at the joy!
