Since I am currently holed up in bed with several maladies (burnt shoulders + inception blisters + heat rash COOL), I figured I may as well put up a few of the pictures from today that resulted in all of those injuries.

Little kitty milling about my feet while we made breakfast.

Rory handled the frying, I handled the taking pictures of cats at my feet and flowers in the back garden.

Bacon, eggs, oranges, banana bread and juice = ideal Sunday breakfast.

Rory's genius idea of bringing a giant water bottle with us probably saved me from heat stroke (I am never overly dramatic or over-exaggerate anything, by the way).

Obviously had to get some ice cream.

Found a little hole in the wall vintage shop that was half indoors and half outdoors, I bought that little yellow cigarette tin on the top of the pile.

Somehow always see the coolest cars when I'm with Rory. I think I go well with this baller purple camper van.

Then we saw a tree that looks like a giant pineapple. What is this monstrosity and where can I get one?

We walked approximately three thousand miles up a hill to Horniman Museum & Gardens, which was absolutely stunning. I took off my awful sandals immediately and Rory cracked us open a few Stella to sip while we lay in the sun.

Hey, London!

And I'll leave you with a fine picture of these llama/alpaca's bums.

Couldn't resist posting a few pictures of this pretty little book I bought at a tiny market the other day. The names of the butterflies are so nice: the Purple Emperor butterfly, the Pale Clouded Yellow butterfly, the Bath White butterfly, the Painted Lady.

The man I bought it from asked me if I was going to try to spot them in my garden - here's hoping I do!

Monday was a bank holiday so we had a big barbecue in our backyard. And I'm talking several courses big. It kind of seemed like the never ending barbecue.
Can't think of a better way to spend a day off, really.
