BANK HOLIDAY

Shoreditch

I second shot my second wedding of the year on Saturday, there was pie and peas, a village hall and a skiffle band with four old dudes who were brilliant - and also a very very happy couple, who were so very much in love. The vicar did a really beautiful service too and even though I am not very religious at all he spoke some very wise words about the future as a husband and wife. I haven't really started on the edit of pics yet, it's a very daunting and mammoth task that I couldn't face on a dreary bank holiday monday but I am very much looking forward to sharing them, hopefully soon! I have 3 more coming up - one each week for the next 3 weeks, YIKES! So I best get on with it really.

Shoreditch

Anyway, no pictures of weddings here today, we went around Shoreditch on Sunday for a mooch and a wander to see what we could find. It feels like ages since we last went around that area, I was surprised about the influx of sausage dogs in the area, I think they're taking over!

We had a look around the markets...

Steven's got his eyes peeled for some particular records but we had no luck here.

Pizza Union

We then went for pizza, what a surprise! We went to Pizza Union which is very cheap and cheerful. Probably not the most amazing pizza in the world but we had a drink, olives and a pizza each and cost about eleven quid, not bad at all.

Just look at that look of love.

London

We hopped on a bus...

...But then hopped off the bus because of road diversions and traffic jams and got to see some sights I regularly take for granted. Tut tut.

We ended up at the Southbank to meet a couple of friends for a brief drink before we looked around the Museum of Broken Relationships.

I loved the Dear Cathy and Claire (of Jackie Magazine) section at the back and had major typewriter/furniture envy.

The Department of Good Cheer bar is very stylish too, with most things made out of cardboard - including the tables!

Oh, I forgot to show these. I bought some Martin Parr postcards and this new Oyster card holder for very cheap from a shop in Box Park earlier in the day.
We didn't do very much yesterday except do a huge tidy and sort out of the flat, living in a tiny one bed flat with no storage starts to take its toll sometimes but then we chuck a load of stuff out and start again!

Hope you had a good long weekend too!
