london sun (part one)

1 August 2014

Blimey we have been busy lately! We are trying to recover from that rubbish winter and get as much UV as possible. We had to go to London as usual, but we decided to make it a family trip in our van, as I also needed to collect a bed frame (long story) and bring it to the Isle of wight. I managed to get all my work done within a few hours, so I had lots of free time in London for a change.
The sun was shining the whole time, very nice. We made it down to Kempton park market in the early hours.

a bit too much excitement for a 1 3/4 year old to handle, a whole box of her, was like finding a trunk of gold bullion.

we used to go to this market regularly, and we always have to have a toasty from the toasty van.

we purchased a few things for our house and garden, and of course some nice things for the tot (a tricycle!).

I have been meaning to visit here, Alexandra Nurseries after seeing it on Leigh's blog

It is an amazing garden centre/cafe/vintage shop in Penge, South London (not far from where we used to live)

I think the pictures speak for themselves, what a place!

and I bought another plant to add to my collection in the van from a previous garden centre sale trip. There is Nao in the front seat somewhere.

next up: Jo's shop, and Victoria Park
