Sleeping in. Carboots. Pub lunches.
We headed to the Capital Carboot in Pimlico which is always good. Little tip: if you follow them on twitter there is a secret password every weekend which gives free entry! I picked up a Tommy Hilfiger chambray shirt for £5. I’ve been looking for one and although this one is probably a bit tight it will do until I find a larger one. I also got a set of 5, apparently Victorian, blue patterned bowls. If you have been following me on pinterest you might have picked up my interest in blue tableware. Unfortunately the one bowl has been cracked and glued back together – any ideas of what other uses I could make of it?
We then headed to the nearby Morpeth Arms which is between the market and Tate Britain. I pleasant enough pub which served to fill our hungry tummies. They do have pretty old glass windows. And I was intrigued by the large bubbles in my tonic water.
I then hung out with my Mum doing generally not much then headed to the Gallery Cafe to take some photos for a documentary screening they had. Best Before looks at food issues from a UK/London perspective in particular. If you don’t know what is wrong with our food system I suggest you take the time to find a screening and check it out. It has an optimistic ending looking at some projects that are going on in London.
