Since starting my new job, I've developed a new found appreciation for weekends. For a good few years now I've had to have my nose in multiple books all weekend and it's an utter delight that they now stretch out before me on a friday, so full of promise.
Thus far I've enjoyed a couple of days in the country, strolling along the South Bank and on to the Matisse exhibition, a spree in Bicester Village and supper in Oxford and, of course, being at home in Richmond.
This sunday, bacon baguettes eaten, we arrived in the park just in time to see the London Surrey Road Race peloton whizz past. We were then forced to set up camp under one of the park's cafe roofs until the remnants of Bertha's thundery showers passed by.
We slowly meandered home (I say slowly, because I did my first ever Wireless Bootcamp on Richmond Green this Saturday. To say I was feeling it would be an understatement!). On our way home we happened across King Henry's Mound Telescope, which gives a perfect 10 mile view of St Paul's through the park. Who knew?!
Lovely food, red wine and a good film await. Happy weekend!
