Sunday, Sunday....

Off for another exciting trip . First stop Columbia Road Flower Market, E2, for breakfast. Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Bagels with yummy hot chocolate...

This is a really great market, the shops are full of designer things and delicious food shops to tempt the palate. We thought we would treat ourselves to a fine bottle of Olive Oil infused with Truffle, the guy selling them let us taste the oils on display, it was so difficult to choose as they all tasted so lovely, DS2 made the decision in the end. The road looks like a carpet of flowers with the sellers shouting out their best prices, I would spend a fortune if I lived here. I cannot believe how cheap the flowers are, some of them I have never heard of. I bought my friends five bunches of Black Irises.

I could not resist taking a photo of this display of Primroses, it makes me happy to see such wonderful colour this time of year.

Stepping back in time... a lovely little shop selling vintage kitchenware, and deliciously decorated cup cakes.

You can visit the shop here
Next stop Brick Lane via a stop off at this really cool furniture design shop, I wanted to buy the whole shop but as they did not deliver outside London I guess I had to settle for this candle holder, seen behind the fruit bowl. Well I did feel better to be coming away with something.

DS2 was really interested in this place as his course at University starting later this year is in Industrial Designing.
After a long and enjoyable day,an afternoon snooze, a lovely meal Steak, Guinness and Cheese Pie, from "Jamie at Home" Cookbook. I will definitely try this recipe at home for the family. What a great way to end a lovely weekend away. Thank you DFriends.
