Bank Holiday Monday in London was horrible. It was absolutely pouring down and having recovered from SW4 I was desperate to get out of the house and do something. I decided to check out Old Spitalfields Market. I'd never been before, it was indoors and I saw that they had a dog pageant on which sounded funny.
To escape from the misty, rainy outside I went to Las Iguanas for a Burrito and some deconstructed patatas bravas. The burrito was good..nice and fresh...but as Burritos are my favourite thing and I've tried a million of them it didn't quite make my 'amazing' list. I'd give it a 7/10. I should really make a London burrito hitlist post. The patatas bravas were reallly good.
The dog show (or should I say 'Paw Pageant') was very amusing. I sat and dog-watched because it was so packed I didn't have a chance of getting near the stage. I'm not really a dog person but I have to confess I did really enjoy it and it was a nice vibe...dog owners were really laid back and the kids around were loving it!
After the show I stopped at La Patisserie Valerie for Earl Grey with flowers. So yummy and soothing on my still hungover stomach. I bought an amber ring at the market which is beautiful. I keep telling myself it has the beginning of Jurassic Park in it!
I wore a rainy day outfit..Topshop jeans, a Primark stripy tshirt, bag, collar and trench coat and Next wedge trainers. It flooded between the station and the market so I'm glad I wore proper shoes! I had major hair strops where my fringe is growing out and it was raining.
How did you spend your bank holiday? I hope the rain didn't ruin too much of your fun. Does anyone have any recommendations for bad weather activities for the colder London months to come?
