The day could not have been more beautiful with the sun shining amidst a bright blue sky as I stood in Trafalgar Square. The Olympic clock was on display counting down the hours until the opening ceremony and my eye was on the time until I was to finally meet some of my dearest blog friends! Rachel arrived first and it was hugs all around, then Mary appeared and I already felt right at home as we found ourselves a table in the gallery's cafe. Tucked in a corner it wasn't long before Simon joined us and we had the most wonderful afternoon of book chat, banter about this and that, browsing Charing Cross Road, a tour highlighting Virginia Woolf's life and two bouts of indulging in cake!
Deciding to move along from the crowd we wandered around Bloomsbury, said hello to a closed Persephone shop and then Mary made another wise suggestion to seek out more tea and cake. Much to my glee we ended up at another destination on my London wish list, Bea's of Bloomsbury!
