Afternoon Walk through Ravensbourne Park

We live nearby a teeny little park here in London called Ravensbourne Park.  Its kind of halfway between Deptford, Greenwich, Lewisham and Blackheath on the border.  We've gone there just to get some fresh air before or to go for a quick run as its about a mile and a half  from our house, round the park and then back again.  Its not the biggest of parks but the blossoms in the spring here are great and you can see some pretty amazing birds.  We've seen coutts, Herons, lots of ducks and even swan.  Its a great way to clear the head or have some meditation time.

James and I popped out there this afternoon before heading to Greenwich doing errands.  I love being able to work from home with Scentsy because it means I can go for a walk anytime I want.  There's a great freedom to that which I like that 9-5 jobs just dont give frankly.

So here's some of the pictures of the daffodils and the little pond and stream there.  Even if you may not be able to get out for a walk today, maybe you can live vicariously through me! lol :)

Recent Weekends

The weather is getting better here in London, so we've been heading out more and more and trying to explore new and different things.  We've lived here for 14 yrs in London and have realised that there's a lot we havent done.

We booked up a visit to the Sky Garden in Central London.  We went and had afternoon tea up on the 35th floor of the walkie talkie building.  There's a gorgeous little garden there and restaurants and 360 views over the city.  James had never had a chance to see views like this in London, so he really enjoyed it. 

This last weekend just passed (Yesterday) I went to a concert for the City Wind Orchestra and then Saturday we went browsing round to Brixton.  I loved Brixton and thought it was very cute and eclectic.  It reminds me of Deptford actually x 10.  We stopped for cupcakes at the vegan bakery there---Ms Cupcake and then had lunch out.  Sunday we walked through Greenwich Park after going to Blackheath Farmers Market.  The smells of the market were amazing---there was a stall right by the entrance that was cooking homemade sausage rolls with onions on the side.  It was sure yummy to smell and reminds me why I love the farmers markets in London.   In Greenwich Park, the daffadils were starting to bloom.  I know that spring is round the corner when the daffodils come in London that's for sure.

We've also been busy cleaning our flat with a great spring clear out.  Getting things to charity, selling them and everything.  The flat feels so much better and I'd really recommend that if you want to feel better to have a good clear out.

Hope you are well.

Christine

Recently on Instagram

Instagram is where I prefer to be most of the time.  I'm playing around with two accounts---One more business although I havent really been posting there recently and one for fun with a touch of biz.  I decided that I'd post a bit from my life recently on Instagram and what fun I've been up to so here you go.

I am out quite a bit in Greenwich and along one of the side streets on the way to the park there's these posh houses that have their own garden so this is where this picture is from.

 

It's been a black and white kinda day. ☁️

James was volunteering around Borough Market in East London recently so after he was finished we met up and wandered round taking pictures and then went for a nice burger.

 

Fun afternoon out with the boy at Broadway Market 🚶🚲💛

The Weather has been getting noticeably better in London with sunnier, less gray depressing skies.  I do better when its sunny and this was taken when I was out around London Bridge.  I think Londoners generally feel happier when there's blue skies in the city.   Seriously who wouldnt?

 

London is sure happy today. 😎☀️

I've been making a list of places I've never been to in London as I've been here for 14 yrs and thought I had seen everything.  Well apparently I havent and the Saatchi Gallery in West London was one of the big things I havent seen.  I wouldnt recommend seeing the Saatchi on its own, if you are out and about anyway near Sloane Square then do it, but dont make a trip just for the gallery.  Its not because the gallery aint worth it, that's far from it, its just its only like 8 rooms and its SUPER SMALL.

 

Coca cola Lenin style. ❤️ P.S. Any Londoners free on Wednesday and want to meet up for a photo walk with me?

Most of the Museums and Art Galleries in London are free and that includes the Tate and here is a picture of one of my favourite rooms, the Henry Moore sculptures. 

 

Henry Moore room in the Tate. One of my favourites in the whole museum.
