Can I just say I’m loving this little burst of summer that London has put on over the last few days? It has made coming back to London that much more pleasant and all I want is for this to go on until… forever! But I’ll take it if it lasts until September.
I’ve kicked off my boots and replaced them with sandals. I’ve painted my toes (as best as I can since I still can’t properly reach the toes on my right foot) and have even waxed my legs. It’s time to shine, my little babies because knowing London? This surreal forecast for a S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G. weekend will not last forever.
Anyway, this warm weather has made me feel like I should be eating a whole bunch of salads, and I was chopping up a cucumber yesterday when I thought, why not pickle it? WHY NOT INDEED! And so I did, because I also have the most ridiculously easiest pickle recipe you’ll ever come across and it literally took about 5 minutes.
So what’s everyone doing this weekend? The great outdoors will be packed no doubt. I hear there’s some coffee festival going on in Londontown but meh, however there is also a chocolate festival happening down at Southbank! I am SO THERE.
It’s also Panu’s birthday today, and tonight we’re dining at Sketch Gallery. It’s my first “nice” meal out since surgery so it’ll be a test. I think I’ll just have a starter and dessert. Mains are usually over-rated anyway, right?
Happy pickling and enjoy the sunshine! x
