Sunny London Skies

Wheeee! It's Wednesday! Thank you all for your lovely words on my award short-listing -- I'm still happy dancing, which I can assure you is not a pretty sight. The official press release is here!

There are some days the world just seems to love London, and today is one of those days. It's sunny, about 25 C, and my parents are in town -- we've been busy exploring Little Venice, Camden Market, Primrose Hill, Regent's Park and Marylebone. A few photos from our travels are below.

No 'real' post today since I'm in lazy mode and I need to rest up for dinner tonight (tough life, I know), but I am in the hot-seat over at Cally Jackson's blog. Pop by if you get a chance!

Primrose Hill, looking down on London.

Little Venice.
Have a great day, everyone!

  13. What perfect weather for your parents visit and for you to enjoy some quality time exploring London with them. I love Kew Gardens but the Treetop Walk must be new since we were last there, which was actually a good few years ago!! Also it is great news about your listing, you deserve it.

  21. The view from Primrose Hill is almost the same as the one from Hampstead Heath. It was a beautiful day here, too, west of London. Is it summer at last??
