Eat Here And Diet Home
Today we went on a tour of the Bank Of England. It was interesting to learn the history of money and see coins and notes from the past. The best bit was the gold bar which you could try and lift – ...
Today we went on an adventure to Birmingham. We had a super early start, so we treated ourselves to porridge at Marylebone. We arrived in Birmingham around midday and it was a little rainy.
Tom bought me an awesome mini harmonica necklace today. It has seven notes and reminds me of buskers on the Paris Metro. I want Tom to learn how to play the songs from Amelie with it. We spotted D...

Until Death Do Us Party
Today was Mel and Dave’s wedding at Ealing Town Hall. This was the first in their three, maybe four, part wedding tour. Today was the official signing of papers but they’re going to have two big UK...
Mac N Cheese
I was on my own tonight, so I did the American single girl thing and made myself some Kraft mac ‘n’ cheese for dinner. The sauce powder was worryingly orange!
The Prince Alfred
We went for lunch at Plan 9 again today. I usually go for the tuna melt but decided to go for the vegetarian sandwich today. It had mozzarella, avocado and tapenade on it and was delicious! Afterw...

New Year's Day
