Bank Holiday Weekend Scrapbook



The bank holiday weekend was a great excuse for me to do barely anything, despite the fact that I woke up before 8.30 every day (not quite how I'd imagined it).

I kicked off the weekend in Nandos on Friday night, watching Lee and his friend basically lick the bones clean, which left me feeling a bit gross.

Saturday I went to see Sweet Bird of Youth at the Old Vic. It starred Kim Cattrall who didn't disappoint, the whole play was great - I'd read it a while back and it was just how I imagined and both of us left feeling suitably cultured and happy. Our seats only cost £12 each as we used the PwC under 25s scheme, which gave us second to front row seats - I didn't even get neck ache and would highly recommend it. 

I spent the rest of the weekend reading The Road, which I'll review later, and knitting for my Bec vs Pinterest feature this week, which is taking more time than I realised but it is looking pretty cute. 

Monday we left the flat to visit Crystal Palace park which I saw on Jo's lovely blog. They had a concrete dinosaur park which kind of gave me the heebie jeebies as we ate lunch over looking it. Subsequently I made us move on into the more conventionally parky area where we read our books. The sun came out and it was glorious. There were a ton of kids though, and their screaming did get to us after a while...

All in all a great weekend, and I'm feeling suitably refreshed for my 10 days of annual leave starting Thursday!

What did you get up to? Making the most of an extra day I hope!

  1. A concrete dinosaur park?! This sort of sounds amazing. I already want to find time to go to the maze at Crystal Palace when I'm next in London, this might be something else to see as well!

  7. Sounds like a lovely weekend! so glad you mentioned the under 25's scheme for cheaper theatre tickets! I love going but having graduated and not secured a job yet, I'm majorly cutting down on all my luxuries! Definitely going to apply for that though, cheers! I myself went to the debaucherous notting hill carnival, which I completely fell in love with and danced all day. I'm looking forward to seeing this mysterious knitting btw! x

    1. Ahh yes it is so worth it - and the globe standing tickets are only £5 each as well, if you have strong legs and feet! The carnival looked amazing! xxx

  9. I do love a bank holiday. For the first time in a long time, I had a really relaxed one with books, lie-ins and a limited amount of alcohol (shock). Looks like you had a lovely weekend! x
