We were near Old Street so headed to Ozone Coffee Roasters and grabbed brunch. I had the freshest salad i've ever eaten to date- rocket, cured salmon, pickled ginger, sesame seeds and a good ol' dollop of avocado. H.e.a.v.en. Mel had a variation of Eggs Benedict with the addition of a bubble and squeak base. I would show you a photo but she wolfed it down before I got the opportunity. Going by her 'ooos' and 'ahhhs', I think she enjoyed it!
My flat white was full of love for me today:
Having tied up ends in the east we headed back across the city to have a culture injection. I thought the British Museum would look beautiful in the sun so we decided to have a gander amongst the Egyptians.
Just like my trip to The Natural History Museum, I was like an excitable puppy, running round the huge sarcophaguses and posing with the lions and sphinxes. Sorry Mel, I'll be better behaved next time. Promise.
I rather fancy myself a bit of an Egyptian... Oui oui?
Mel thought this would make an excellent bath tub. I think it might be a bit deep...and cold?
These wall panels are incredible. I find it totally amazing to think how old they are, but are still completely beautiful and have the ability to tell a story of a forgotten time.
Clearly this little lion didn't run fast enough... Poor chap.
Moving on from the BM, we required ice cream and a sit in the sun. I keep telling you it's a tough life!
By this time, Josie had turned up.
This is my 'best pistachio ice cream ever' face. I nearly dribbled, but don't worry, I saved my dignity. For today at least.
We made friends with this very handsome boy. He was a dribbler though... Clearly didn't take anti dribbling lessons from me.
He just wouldn't leave us alone and every time we threw the ball he'd come bounding back over! What a cheeky boy!
A perfect spring day in the sun before meeting up with the university gang for an evening full of wine, pizza and late night cocktails.
Here's to a very relaxing bank holiday weekend. Enjoy!
