Happy Jubilations!

Jubilee weekend
This weekend in London was a historical one! With the Diamond Jubilee taking place the vibe of London was electric! The long weekend started for me midweek and it felt like it lasted a lifetime!
To recap my long weekend celebrations:
Wednesday: when my friend from Australia had came for a visit and took me out for dinner at one of my favourite dives in London the Roadhouse in Covent Garden. It was so special to me to have someone from home to come and remind me of the good times back home.

Thursday: My boss had taken the whole office out to The Clarence (the private room obviously!) to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee. As I am still the newbie at the office it was nice to mingle with my new work mates and see that they were really like after a few pints. If there’s one thing I absolutely love about London it’s the old man pubs on every corner. Sure the Poms are known to wingd about everything, but the atmosphere and the banter at these pubs you can’t really get anywhere else!

Friday: my friend Matteo had booked this fantastic 8 course taster menu at DSTRKT a new club/restaurant in London. Walking into DSTRKT was like walking into a club that you would see in the celeb mags. It was indulgent, aristocratic, and remarkable but still had that dirty house vibe to it!
Saturday: Was the day of rest. I was happy to curl up and eat good comfort food and watch curly Sue in my Pyjamas (I’m such a nerd).

We headed down to Putney bridge where the Queen was floating by in her Flotilla. The energy in London was remarkable, people usually moan about the rain and the weather- well when it comes to the Queen the people will get out and support her rain hail or shine! After a few drink and laughs down by the river we decided to go watch Prometheus. I never thought in a million years I’d end up  with such a sci-fi fan. But as mum said- if you can’t beat them join them, so that’s exactly what I did!

What a fantastic weekend….
Here’s to many more to come!
