Memos: Mail: Me

This week, The Postie may have aided and abetted my ever-growing collection
 as well as allowing me to add to my collection of London-themed
reference books.  The Secret London book was recommended to me
by a neighbour who thought The Boy Child might enjoy exploring some
of the more obscure places listed.
 I have a few places already earmarked for visiting during the Easter holidays.
As for the weekend, on Saturday we went up to Little Venice for a stroll
along the Regent's Canal and lunch in a very picturesque pub.   

 We're fortunate that the overground train takes a mere 6 minutes
to reach Paddington station, and Little Venice can then be reached on foot within 5 minutes. 
Sunday was Mothering Sunday here in the UK, and apart from receiving a sweet card from
The Boy Child, it was a Sunday exactly like any other.
With added blue sky, blossom and vapour trails.

I like the idea of the secret London book. I wonder if they do other cities. I used to like Little Venice when I lived in London. Haven't been there in years.

What a lovely Sunday for you. Nice stripy top, it says spring/summer to me. Secret London does sound like an excellent reference book to have on hand - oh the adventures to be had! Happy week ahead.

How lovely to be so close to the city, yet also so close to the greens and parks and waterways.
Lovely top too, you can never have too many stripy tops!

Now you know how much I love a stripey top..

I like the sound of that book: what a clever thought your neighbour had, because now we'll get to share whatever you discover. Fingers crossed.

Clearly I am in very good company with my penchant for stripey tops! It was a Sunday like any other here too. There's much to be said for that.
