Woke up very early and got up just after 7 to make coffee. After a shower and breakfast I went with Talya to watch Maya and Joshua have their swimming lessons. We collected Dave and Jon for our long walk around London. We caught the tube to Knightsbridge and our first stop was Harrods food hall. We then went to Harvey Nichols and we got a few items from there. We bought lunch from Pret and had a picnic in Green Park. All of their food is made fresh each day and what is not sold is offered to charity! Dave and I sbared 2 sandwiches and both were very good. We then went to Fortnum and Mason where I bought one item and spoke to the person in charge of the wines about their South African selection. After that we walked through Burlington Arcade and on to the Lotus store. We then went to Hamley’s which was a mad house and from there to Liberty. The building is amazing with wood carved bannisters and railings. By then the kids had walked enough (at least 5 hours) and so we got the underground back to Arnos Grove. Dave, Tali and I went shopping and Dave cooked pasta with a chicken and vegetable sauce. That was followed by a rhubarb crumble that was in the oven a bit too long. We had some Stilton and after all that fresh air went to bed quite sleepy!
