History Sunday

This is my second time at the Natural History Museum. I find the exhibitions quite funny. 
First up we started the day with coffee's at Kaffeine, then we had breakfast at Sacred. Both cafe's were owned/run by Australian & NZers but both had such a different feel to them. The picture of Joe with coffee is at Sacred.

Oh Oxford!

If you thought this post was about Oxford you would be wrong... We're such dorks. We spent all of yesterday in Oxford and the only thing we took pictures of was our bikes. They were such beautiful bikes though! If only they were ours. We hired them and they were so much fun to ride around on. Oxford was pretty freaking picturesque. We started by riding our bikes up beside the Thames (free roaming horses galloping around... really Oxford?!), and then back into town. We saw some of the colleges but spent more time pottering around on the pretty Pashley's (the bikes).

What Up Wales

So there is this bit of water near Cardiff in Wales where you can see England, and apparently they have this saying "If you can see England it's going to rain soon, and if you can't see England it's already raining."
We had a fantastic, whirlwind day in Wales. Wandered around Cardiff for a bit, then went to Caerphilly Castle. Got rained on, ate yummy pasties, had some welsh beer. Was a great way to spend Joe's birthday.
Now i'm going to eat myself into a sugar coma.
Happy Easter!
xoxo Love Lizzie

It is a Good Friday

It has been a Good Friday indeed.
I took a picture of my roses that I bought last weekend at the Columbia Road flower market. They're still looking beautiful. Joe and I went out for breakfast but made a pit stop at Drink, Shop & Do to drop off some coffee. Thats the daffodil photo and the photo of the cute cafe with great furniture. They also have a wee shop out the front with lovely stock, and apparently Joe was telling me they have a bar downstairs that is purely a Gin bar. If only I liked Gin.
We went to Flat White for breakfast, and then bought some art supplies and I got some beautiful magazines for the bus tomorrow. There was another coffee shop nearby called Foxcroft & Ginger which we 'had' to try also so we went there also. I had yum lemonade. One coffee a day is enough for me.
Joseph has been out this afternoon hunting for a helmet while i've been making his birthday cake. I've made him sticky date cake, but i'm most excited about the icing which is a caramel sauce. I've had to stop myself from eating spoonfuls of it and just occasionally have a taste.
Tonight we're going to go to a vegetarian restaurant called Vanilla Black for his birthday dinner.
Then its up early in the morning to go to Wales! A fun filled birthday few days. Its only fair - I got to be in Paris for my birthday :p
Anyway this is way more then I would usually write. I'll take more photos tomorrow of Wales.
