InstaRecap – London + Edinburgh

As you can see we’ve been tearing around London like lunatics trying to soak in all the sights and eat as many pastries as possible, all whilst resisting the urge to curl up into a small but very warm ball, especially when some nights have been just one little degree Celsius! And remember I’ve been basking (sweating) in 35 degree Broome weather up til now! Jinn organised a sneaky birthday surprise for me and reserved us a room at the luxurious Langham Hotel which was just beautiful and also dangerously close to all the shopping on Oxford St. He knows me too well…

There will be many many more posts to come, I promise. But whilst there are that many things to see and numerous cupcakes to eat plus a wedding in France this Saturday (eek! So soon!), I’m afraid the posts will be a little sporadic. That, and I may possibly lose a finger or two if it gets any colder!

Ciao for now πŸ™‚

More bee-day spoilt goodness at the hotel 😘😘😘

  1. Loving the photos!!
    How good are the Borough Markets. I always feel the impulse to buy a giant wheel of cheese and chomp through it.

    • They had a Saturday special called “Eton Mess”, vanilla with a delicious custard/cream centre topped with an Italian meringue icing and strawberries – it was incredible!

      Love Sa πŸ™‚
