Come to think of it, this entire blog is an ode to the magical city I live in. Add a sunshine-filled summer into the mix and how can it be beaten? Slip in a cheeky Pimms (or Vodka, Lime, Lemon & Bitters if it’s an antipodean bartender) in an olde-worlde pub, weekday picnic lunches, canal-side wandering, brunches with the girls and historic palaces accidentally stumbled upon and you have a rather fantastic week in the making.
Call me rose-tinted spectacle wearing, but with a touch of canny commuting, planning delicious assignations, luck and making sure there’s always something to look forward to, London is my oyster. Even on those nasty Monday mornings where the world seems like it could end…
This is my summer in London, the city that I adore.
What a week of contrasts.
