Yesterday the family and I decided to hit central London for a spot of high tea (bar my Pa as he was working). This is by no means a regular occurrence - we had a voucher for GroupOn so we decided to spoil ourselves.
We spent the afternoon sipping our champagne, pouring an array of tea's, nibbling our way through a selection of mini sandwiches cut from a variety of breads, the most delicious scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam, and finishing off with our mouth watering deserts, my personal favourite was the miniature lemon tart topped with tiny rose petals.

Our adventures didn't stop their either, seeing as we still had a large part of the afternoon left, and the weather was rather warm, we took a little trip down to Covent Garden. It was filled with tourists and Londoners alike, all whiling away the afternoon, watching the various performers scattered around the infamous square, sipping their coffees, swilling their pints and enjoying an afternoon ice cream.
We wondered the winding back lanes, gazing into shop windows and picking up a bag of pear drops for our journey. We popped into the much talked about Lucy In Disguise,, it was as if you were transported back in time with the staff all sporting rather retro hairdo's and make up and kitted out with designers vintage pieces. Although there were some fabulous items, I personally think it's slightly overrated and overpriced - though perfect for someone who is into vintage but doesn't enjoy the thrill of the hunt.
After all the window shopping we found ourselves feeling rather peckish again so we ducked into Cote for dinner and boy did we guzzle our cloudy lemonade's and devour our Pâté , Scallops and minute steaks - it turns our we were hungrier than we thought :)
It was such a splendid afternoon spent with my family, enjoying the sights and the sounds of our home town - London - something I must do more often, though less of the eating - I think we consumed enough food to feed an army. Also all these photo's were taken with my new Canon 450D(XSi). What do you think?
How was everyone else's Sunday spent? Did everyone have fun?
