It’s yet another sunny day in the city and I’m bursting with excitement. Tomorrow I’m off to Ibiza for a long girlie weekend. Watch this space next week for a post about everything that we get up to. (Well maybe not quite everything).
I hope you all had a really good Easter weekend and that last week’s post about things to do in London during the Easter holiday gave you some good inspiration to get out and about and enjoy the great bank holiday weather.
Friday Pub Crawl
The Husband and I had a cracker of a weekend. Starting with a bit of a pub crawl down the New Kings Road starting in Parsons Green and ending at Putney Bridge. We tried some new places that we haven’t ventured into before. A couple of highlights were the Temperance pub on the north side of Putney Bridge and Tequila Mockingbird on the south.
The Temperance had a great two-piece band on and although I forgot to ask their name they were a real highlight to the night. Tequila Mockingbird (what a GREAT name for a bar) is a lively little cocktail bar with great music playing all night. I thoroughly recommend both next time you’re in the area.
Although the weather wasn’t as warm as the previous one, it remained dry and bright so on Saturday, we headed off to The Ship in Wandsworth for a few drinks with a group of friends.
One of our friends who lives in Birmingham was down for the day and it was a great place to catch-up. On warmer days we would have definitely taken advantage of their large riverside seating area and soaked up the sun. However, there was a bit of a nip in the air so we headed inside to the livelier area of the bar.
Sunday was more of a recovery day and my promise of a quiet weekend was true for a day at least. We caught up on the latest episodes of Suits and Homeland on good old Netflix.
Football in Fulham
On Monday we had a leisurely breakfast in The White Horse at Parsons Green and walked through Bishops Park to Craven Cottage, home of Fulham Football Club. The Husband’s team, Aston Villa were playing and so we went to offer our support.
We popped into The Crabtree pub next to the river which had the job of keeping the away fans fed and watered before kick off. It’s a really nice spot right on the bank of the Thames.
Unfortunately, the lads from Birmingham were massively outplayed and some of the referee’s decisions were questionable at best. So after walking back with a slightly disgruntled Husband in tow we settled down and watched the Broadchurch finale.
All in all a good weekend (football result aside). Must rush as I need to check-in for my flight tomorrow. If you’ve got any Ibiza top-tips be sure to let me know in the comments below. You can read my post about Ibiza here.
