I had a pretty nice weekend if I do say so myself. It is so tempting for me to be lazy on my days off from Uni but I’m trying to get better at going out to explore the city (one of my new year’s resolutions: Work less, explore more).
The boyfriend would not be lured away from the warmth and dryness of my room to go to Covent Garden with me until he realised that a sweets shop with imported sweets were lying just around the corner from the Apple Market.
So off we went, with a camera and an empty hand that should had been holding an umbrella. The rain had stopped for a while and I chose to be positive and hopeful as we walked out the door. Alas, this is London and I should have known better by now. I’ve lived here long enough to know that “clear blue sky” can turn into fierce winds and rain at any moment without prior warning.
Luckily for us, the market is roofed and we managed to stay pretty clear of the rain. There was way too many people for my liking (What on earth made me tempted to go exploring on a Saturday of all days?!) but to balance it off I found the super cute Moomin Shop!
The boyfriend treated me to lunch and we had the most delicious paella. They had not cheated with this, as there was plenty of mussels, prawns and squid in mine and I’m lucky enough that the boyfriend doesn’t fancy prawns so I could have his, too! I’m a big fan of sea food and Spanish food so this was pretty perfect.
