It’s time again for the monthly round up about all the adventures I’ve been having.
Firstly, welcome back after a week offline due to my little website getting an upgrade from Gatto Web. There are a few tweaks and new things floating around the blog so have a look around and let me know what you think.
I am in full on saving mode at the moment for ‘The Big Trip’ as we have only 6 months until take off and a shit load more saving to do. I keep saying to myself that it is a small sacrifice to have an incredible year off work.
So this month I took a lot of photos of pretty houses and blooming blossoms. London has had plenty of sunshine but it is still bitterly cold, I can’t wait for spring to arrive.
I celebrated pancake day with a night at my friends house making a variety of pancakes, my favourite was nutella, banana and berries.
Dan and I celebrated Valentines Day a day later this year by having breakfast at Duck and Waffle one Monday morning. I love that I can walk here from my house. This was my third visit to Duck and Waffle and will probably be my last, don’t get me wrong it’s a nice place with an epic view but I definitely left feeling slightly disappointed (again).
We got there, were seated, our order was taken super swiftly and I’m not even kidding within about 8 minutes the food was out. There wasn’t much time to sit back, admire the view and have a chat. Before we knew it, we had eaten our food and we were on our way 45 minutes after arriving. Maybe I’m a big fatty but half a waffle, a banana and a dollop of ice cream didn’t really fill me up and I left still hungry. Dan was happy with his big breakfast though and still maintains that it is the best fry up he’s ever had #bigcall.
Anyway, maybe we are just too spoilt for choice for brunch in London that Duck and Waffle just doesn’t compare to others now. The view however is pretty great on a clear day.
After brunch we strolled to Hatton Garden to get our rings cleaned, bling bling before stopping in at Caravan at Exmouth Market for a flat white and a stroll along Regents Canal home.
Don’t be fooled by that blue sky, it was freezing!
We then jetted off to Jersey for a few days to catch up with the family and meet our new little niece who is just adorable! I just love Jersey (I’ve said it several times – here and here) and it was so nice to be by the beach and in the fresh air.
We spent a day at Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust hanging out with all sorts of creatures and we even got an afternoon tea in at L’Horizon Hotel. Check out the incredible view, not a bad spot for a champagne afternoon tea.
Dan even took a dip in the sea (he is crazy).
My last brunch of the month was at Stories Bar on Broadway Market which is sadly closing. Another local gem being lost because of greedy landlords apparently. This cafe/bar has gorgeous decor and a good brunch menu that is very well priced.
Plans for March:
