Central London Art Trip
Busy weekends are great weekends to me and this weekend sure fit this bill. Saturday I went to Borough Market for our usual meeting I go to in Southwark Cathedral and then we headed to Sloane Square Chelsea to see the Saatchi Gallery. Unfortunately it was closed due to a private watch exhibition being on for 2 weeks, but we walked around the Saturday Market there in the square next to it. They had some great food like pastries, healthy food, quiches, etc. It was a bit of a bummer not getting to go to the Saatchi, but at least we know where its at now and will be much easier to find next time. It looks like someplace fun to go especially in the summer time as there's a nice cafe and open space there.
We then headed to the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square and walked around. We thought were going to get to see a Rembrandt Exhibition but it wasnt free, it was nearly £18 a ticket so we decided to give it a miss this time and we walked around the free collections. I always find it super amazing how I can come and see Van Gogh, Monet, Canaletto and the greats for free about a 15 minute train ride from my house. It makes me realise how blessed I am to live here in London to have opportunities like this.
We walked to Covent Garden and shared a burger and then headed home and the rest of the day just got on with jobs we needed to do including Scentsy.
Sunday we went for a glorious walk through Blackheath, hit the farmers market and got a whole bunch of fruit and veg.....LOADS for a grand total of £10. People dont think that you can save money at farmers markets, but we find its so much cheaper than the grocery store for veg. This veg would have cost at least £20 or more if we had bought it from the store.
We then had a cup of tea out and then went to go see the movie Interstellar. It was kind of weird to be honest but made by the same guy who did Inception so no wonder why the plot was so darn twisted and confusing!!
Here's a few pictures I took fromt his weekend. Enjoy. I would love to hear about your weekend in the comments below.
