On Tuesday I hopped on the train and went to visit one of my best friends, Sarah, in London. It was raining when I left but by the time I’d gotten to London it was fine with only the occasion drizzle throughout the day that always seemed to happen when we were inside a building!
We walked around on foot for a while and popped into a few shops. I needed to go to Whole Foods to pick up some bits, some of which were out of stock (boo hoo!) but managed to get most of what I needed.
Then we had a look around for somewhere to eat lunch. We almost ate in Ed’s Diner just off Leicester Square, but the attitude of, who I can only assume was the manager, put us right off and we decided to leave. Instead we headed to Wahaca and had a lovely lunch. It was the first time I’d been there and I was really impressed by the whole experience. Even the toilets were impressive! Good food and good company, I’ll definitely go back to a Wahaca again.
On the way to Wahaca I’d spotted Bubbleology in Soho and mentioned I’d like to go there after, so we did. I had a hot matcha bubble tea. My first hot bubble tea – it was so yummy! We wandered to Soho Square and wanted to sit down but the benches were still wet from the rain, so we wandered off and started heading in the direction of the station I needed to get home from.
After a browse in Heals (amazing Missoni homeware!) we walked to the station where I said goodbye and headed back home. It’s always lovely to visit Sarah in London even if it is for a short time.
Wednesday, Thursday and today have all been mega rest days. I did fit one run in, but felt so rotten I stopped short of my goal. I seem to have a bit of a sinus issue which is making me feel very under the weather, but it’s forced me to sit on my bum and watch movies which has been wonderful! I’ve also been able to do a bit of work to the house which I’ve been meaning to do for a while now.
I have two days of my holiday left and lots planned over the weekend, so I’m hoping the rest has done me good!
