sunday in london
Of course I was up much earlier than the kids and spent time doing research about what to do for the next three weeks while thinking in the back of my head…were the kids going to sleep through the whole day. Josh finally rose and off we went.
Lunch was right around the corner at La Fromagerie. A very cute restaurant grocery charcuterie cheesemonger wine store.
The other thing we tried was very British. Two thick slices of cheddar cheese with a pastry wrapped savory pate with a hard boiled egg in the middle. Interesting. Very tasty but not rushing out to order it again.
I chose this neighborhood because of a store that carries great kitchen products. Divertimenti. The knives in the place we are staying are worthless. I took Josh to get his first kitchen knife. The key is really putting them in your hand. I like the Global knives because I have tiny hands and they are light. Josh really liked the German knives they had. Heavy and perfect in his hand. We got him two knives. A big one that can be used multiple ways and a small one with multiple uses too.
Then we started walking to the Photographers Museum and stopped at Topshop on the way. They do a great job in that store. Josh got a few goodies.
We made it to the Photographers Museum where Emily happened to be too. Obviously great minds think a lot. The museum had the first UK exhibit of Sally Mann's work. I have always been a fan of her work. So talented. A controversial figure because of the photographs of her children in their younger years. I am not so sure I believe there need to be so much controversy but her work is fantastic. The exhibit not only included the family photos but photos of the landscapes near her home. This one above is from that.
Time to go home, take a run through Green Park and get ready for dinner.
