Stories I loved this week.
We’ve had a few warm days in London this week and now I’m itching for summer. London is so great in the summer, with the many parks, rooftop patios and riverside pubs. My husband and I had a day off this week for his birthday and we discovered a fabulous rooftop pub / garden on top of the South Bank Centre. And it was utter bliss to sit in the sun with a book, a glass of wine and a bit of peace. Looking forward to going back with J so he can run around the garden.
