More tales of the London trip later on today, and here they are....
So whistle stop visit, the brief was to pack in as much of Rebecca’s London life as possible, my 1st born is at LAMDA in Barons Court, she wanted us to stay in a hotel on the same line as her so we found ourselves at The Novotel in Hammersmith (We won’t be staying there again!).
We finished work at about 5:00, we arrived about 9:00, Rebecca met us in the foyer of the hotel, (the very best thing about this hotel is the flowers) we then set off on foot for The Curtain Up, I actually witnessed my own daughter drink from a pint glass (quite horrifying), then a series of tubes to Berkley Square and Benares table booked for 10:00, fantastic Indian food, the Tandoor cooked lamb chops were amazing (Rebecca had not been there before, students don’t usually, but this was our treat, her house mates have been to The Ivy etc with their parents so as Liv would say “What ya gonna do?”). Back at the hotel for 1:30am sleep…. 8:00 am alarm, a walk, then a bus (me on a bus, can you imagine, apparently I looked mighty out of place) and then a series of tubes (remember this is her lifestyle not ours) more walking and we arrive at Electric Brassiere for a superb brunch, Rebecca chose a breakfast Smoothie & eggs Benedict, Jason had a Bloody Mary and a massive Breakfast, I had the most delicious French Toast with Pecan & Maple butter mmmm.
Rebecca then went back for some rehearsals for a couple of hours but not before introducing us to Humming Bird Bakery we bought a box full of “Red Velvet Cup Cakes” for the girls at Flower Design.
Jason & I went to investigate loads of different Flower Shops our favourite was “Angel Flowers” in Islington, great shop, lovely flowers and the staff were really knowledgeable.
Ottolenghi is one of my favourite places so I bought a feast of take home goodies for tonight’s dinner and a very special packed lunch for Olivia to take to school today. A few doors up was a wine shop with a difference The Sampler, here’s the thing they allow you to sample loads of different wines from inexpensive £8.99 quaffing wines to the King of Spain’s favourite “Vega Sicilia Unico 1969 at £450.00, you can buy as little as two mouthfuls to taste which was just brilliant, Jason bought 2 bottles (The King of The Fylde’s Favourite Barolo) to go with the Ottolenghi purchases.
Then to another pub “The Barnsbury” where we met Rebecca and Ben (Mark & Claire’s son also studying in London) we enjoyed a fantastical Sunday Dinner and enjoyed their company it all ended too soon and we were back on the tube, bus and finally car arriving on The Fylde in the early hours, today I’m exhausted, I’m also lead to believe this is Rebecca’s lifestyle non stop, oh to be a teenager!

Melanie's wedding will be at The Inn at Whitewell in April
I have used Avalanche & Akito Roses, together with some delicate sprigs of Eucalyptus and Fresh Fragrant Rosemary in the wedding bouquet, the pearl detail in some of Roses simply picks up on a motif that will be in lots of elements throughout the wedding day.
