A Foggy Day in London.

My feet ache as I've walked for miles .............
Yesterday I met my daughter at London Bridge so that we could wander around Borough Market. It is a twice weekly market that is full of fabulous food from wonderful Artisans who travel from all over the UK and even from France with their wonderful wares.
Fabulous breads......

Wonderful chocolate.................
Yummy cakes...............

I bought lots of bread and cheese, for my supper  and  Oh!  just a small piece of cake.............

Then back out of the market with a delicious hot duck sandwich and more walking.


It was a very mild day but quite gloomy.


The Shard was lost in the fog...........
and Tower bridge was was just visible.

We walked along the Embankment and had a glass of wine sitting watching the Thames and all it's river traffic, then home with tired and sore feet.


Today was just for shopping!!!!!

I caught a bus to Stratford, home of the 2012 Olympic Village.
and also the biggest shopping centre I have ever seen, the amazing Westfield.
I felt a little overwhelmed by the sheer size of it so had to sit and have a Latte before I started shopping.

I've bought clothes,
had my eyebrows threaded,
had my nails buffed,
bought shoes,
and had some makeup applied.( bought some too,)

I had some fabulous Indian Street Food for lunch, followed later with two scoops of Italian Gelato for desert.

I'm home now with all my purchases, I'll be a new woman!!!

Time to sit and watch 'Strictly Come Dancing',
What a great Saturday, hope yours was too.
xox, Angela.

Hi Angela! You certainly had a full day. The market looks great. I'm not really into shopping malls -- hubby and my oldest son managed to buy lots at a very big shopping center in Paris, while me and my younger son took the subway back to our hotel where I sat back and relaxed with a bottle of wine. :) My ankle was feeling better this morning after resting yesterday; but I think I've overdone it today. Back to school tomorrow. This is one time when I am glad I have a desk job -- I don't have to walk anymore than necessary. Have a great rest of the weekend. Tammy

Hi Angela, It looks like you had a great and successful day. The food booths look wonderful. Shopping at such markets is much more fun than in grocery stores, isn't it?
I too get overwhelmed by huge shopping malls and always feel exhausted after such a shopping trip.
Have a lovely and relaxing Sunday :-)!
Hugs,
Julia

Sounds like a lovely day. I miss the markets in England. I spent 4 years there many many years ago and those markets are one of the many things I miss. The mall you have there looks huge! Nothing like that when I was there!
Have a lovely week Angela and thank you for your sweet comment!
xo,
Karen
