I can’t remember the last time I spent a full bank holiday in London. Usually I use the extra days off as an excuse to go abroad, but decided this time round to staycation in the big city. Who knew so much could be crammed into a long weekend?
Boated down the Thames, as an honorary tourist, from Westminster to Tower Bridge
Visited Borough Market and queued down the street to have coffee at Monmouth
Roasted my first wood pigeon with homemade red currant jelly gravy, wilted dandelion leaves and sautéed chard
Had £5 sourdough pizzas at The Ferm (Breads Etcetera) on Clapham High Street with my housemate and our parents
Visited my friend’s family in Haselmere for a chocolate-fuelled Easter Sunday lunch
Had time to breakfast properly in the sunshine
Pretended it was summer, with copious cups of al fresco coffee
