Easter Days

April 11, 2012

The K family spent Easter in London this year, we all travelled south, Sara and Craig to hotel hop and Mr K and I to stay at Victoria and Rob's flat. It was a relaxing visit just enjoying spending time together, no visit to the Tate to see Damien Hirst  for us - do you think we are the only family not to go? I reckon we saw some great art in Meat Liquor instead!

Victoria persuaded her Dad to join her at Bikram Yoga - he wasn't smiling like that after the third session!

Brunch for Craig and Sara in Mishkins, which as you can see from the photographs was deserted apart from us! Can't comment on the food as we were fed at Maison Primrose Hill so we just had coffee which wasn't the kind of coffee porn that Sara and Victoria love so not worthy of a photograph...

Early evening there was some Koninck beer at the Lowlander in Drury lane where we were joined by John en route to a work function, hence the sharp suit and cufflinks, so unlike the casual weekend guy we know and love, but I guess that's working in the city for you! Can't tell you what John does but it's the kind of job which involves signing the Official Secrets Act... Anyway, in case I've blown his MI6 cover I'll move on. John bought champagne to toast the engaged couple which was a lovely surprise, this engagement celebration just keeps on going and going, which is just great for Sara and Craig and everyone else who gets to share the champagne. More Champagne was on offer from Victoria and Rob the next day as well, I think we could all get used to this lifestyle!

Dinner at Meat Liquor after the Lowlander, which started with a 20 minute queue to get in. It's like eating in a night club, dark and with VERY loud music which is perfectly OK if you just want to eat and not talk to anyone, maybe not ideal for a first date or catching up on friend's news or maybe I'm just too damn old for night clubs!
The burgers were great though and fabulous value; food comes on a tray with a kitchen roll, no plates and the drinks are served in jars. Victoria ordered Chilli cheese fries, onion rings and extra fries with our burgers and I was convinced that a mound of food would be left, but no... all hoovered up. Give it a try, I adored the decor and maybe the music isn't as loud at lunch time...

No visit to London is complete without a quick turn round Camden market. We didn't buy anything although were intrigued by the idea of deep fried oreos - thought it was only the Scots who deep fried sweet stuff...obviously not!

Victoria noticed this piece of graffiti on the railway bridge, maybe Craig has taken up art?

Highlights of our trip? Everything! Fabulous cooking from our hosts, lots of laughs, even when Rob managed to burn out the base of Victoria's mixing bowl. Red wine in the rain, walks round Regent's Park, spending far too much money on delicious wool in John Lewis, cuddles on the sofa, yummy easter cakes, hot cross buns and coffee ( Oh! Victoria - Rob ate yours didn't he...) Mr K's Bikram Yoga sessions, Meat Liquor burgers ... I could go on and on but the real thing that made this so special is just being with people you love!

London visits are tiring though – aren't they?
