Anyway; a few weeks ago the Husband, E, and I had a chance to spend the day in London to visit with our brother & sister-in-law, as well as a few friends who were in town from the States for a couple of days. And let's be honest: when do I not jump on a chance to spend more time back in London? So we hopped in the car and hit the road to catch up with our friends and do a bit of sightseeing as well.

But the market was lovely. We had a good time looking around at the stalls, though it was absolutely heaving with people that day. We weren't sure we'd be able to find the crowd we were meeting up with, but we found them well enough in the end. After a tasty lunch of bacon butties, we dashed across the street to grab a bit of ice cream. The store was cute enough, and the ice cream wasn't bad, but I was still holding out for a Snog frozen yoghurt later in the day...and you'd better believe I got it, too!

After South Kensington, it was time to head a little farther north to Camden Town. Another place I hadn't really seen in five years. (I used to live on Steele's Road.) We went to hang out and relax at our friend Paul's flat. He and his flatmate (and another friend) Morgan keep bees out on their balcony! This is a serious operation: there's the framed hives, a beekeeper suit, sugar water for the bees, and all the stuff to extract and jar the honey. It all looked pretty awesome. The Husband even geared up to take a closer look.
But that didn't stop us from having some fun with E out in Regent's Park and having a lovely dinner at the Camden Town Nando's before heading back home with Angus and Emily to hit up a gathering at the in-laws' house the next day. All in all, our trip was a really good time.
