Borough Market

 


The Photographer’s Gallery visited this morning.it’s tucked away just off Oxford Street. Then clothes shopping. Then Tate Modern briefly, before meeting my great niece Ellie at Borough Market.
I’m knackered and just having a coffee before tubing it across town to Ealing to meet Nu
I had a Ginger Pig scotch egg for lunch.
I could hardly carry it

  2. You've certainly packed a lot into your visit. You'll need another holiday to get over it all! Glad you're enjoying it with people you love. xx

    1. I was wondering if John would be offended if I commented: Beauty and The Beast? (So I decided to go ahead).

  4. It's tiring packing in so many nice things but so worth it! Your great niece has a lovely smile.
    Did you buy anything at the market or just wander?

  5. I hope that no passing strangers imagined that Ellie was your carer!

      More likely to think he was a cradle snatcher o
      or her sugar daddy.

      John is much to vibrant and good looking to look as if he needs a carer.

    Another fully packed day with lovely Ellie and then Nu! I, too, wondered if you bought anything (framed, ceramic, wearable, or ...) in the shops to take home?
    Enjoy!

    Hugs!

  10. Re "great niece" do you mean that she is your great-niece, i.e. the daughter of your niece or nephew (are you old enough for that?), or just that she is your niece and she is great?

  12. At a first glance, I thought you said you went clothes shopping at Tate Modern...the mind boggles! Grayson Perry meets Tracy Emin?!

  14. Such a fun weekend. I envy you, enjoying this outing alone. I looked up the Ginger Pig and also found this list of the other Best Scotch Eggs in London. So you can try them all out.

  15. We've never been to the Borough Market. Not sure we ever will now.

  16. You seem to be having a very good time. Enjoy your time away. Holidays work wonders to refuel us for dealing with the day to day living we experience. Be happy, have fun and enjoy yourself to the fullest.

  17. I can't remember when I was last in London. I lived there in the 60's, but haven't been back much since. I envy you.

  18. I was going to ask what a Ginger Pig Scotch egg was, so thanks Lizzy D! I'm wishing we could be over there, but we have to settle for your descriptions. What a beautiful smile your g-n Ellie has.
