One of my New Years Resolutions was to explore London more. So I dragged Tom away from the Xbox and insisted we visit a few places we haven't been to before.
First we went to Primrose Hill and stood at the top admiring the gorgeous view. We were pretty lucky with the weather, it was such a clear day so the view was incredible. We then hopped on a bus to Notting Hill, there's no market on a Sunday so it wasn't crazy busy which I liked. We had a stroll down Portobello Road and found a nice little pub to have a Sunday roast. The tables were all decorated with candles in spirit bottles which I thought was nice but I know lots of people hate that! The meal would have been even more perfect washed down with a nice glass of Pinot Grigio but we are both doing dry January so that didn't happen!
January is always a weird month, Christmas and New Year are over and you're trying to get back into the swing of things. The pockets are emptier than usual due to over spending at Christmas and we're all constantly restricting our diets and alcohol consumption to try to make up for over doing it in December. I've decided to try to take advantage of not drinking and having no hangovers by exploring so hopefully next weekend I will have another new part of London to tell you about :)
Hope you have all had a great week!
