I am a bit slow this month on my August Round Up, the weeks seem to be flying past far too quickly, it only seemed like last week the schools broke up for Summer and now they are all back to school.
As always I will start off with C, we have had quite an up and down we had an emergency trip to the dentist due to her jaw and teeth, but we do now have her mouth guard, you can read about the drama here. We also had a trip to A&E in the middle of the night, which was worrying and tiring as she was having chest pains and just started her new medication, you can read about it here. Unfortunately there is no back to school for C just yet, I had a very tearful C last Tuesday evening, as she wanted to go back to school and do normal lessons, unfortunately, she is just not well enough, she started her tutoring again last Wednesday, and her tutor saw a huge difference in her, but she was only well enough to have one lesson last week, and we had to cancel on Thursday.
We had a fairly busy August and managed a few trips out we treated ourselves to a bottomless brunch at Mabels in Covent Garden
The food was amazing and just the right amount, you can add extra for a small extra charge, the drinks flowed and I enjoyed the prosecco plus a couple of others. If you are ever in Covent Garden I would recommend paying a visit.
I was lucky enough to be given tickets to foodies festival at Alexandra Palace, it was promised to be the food equivalent of Glastonbury, so we were looking forward to our day out, and the sun was shining as we made our way there. When we arrived we were both starving so the first thing we did was decide on what we wanted to eat.
I chose a slow roasted belly pork in a sticky bun and added crackling and crispy onions, I have never had anything like this before and it was gorgeous. My husband chose BBQ chicken wings, unfortunately it was quite tangy and all you could really taste was vinegar. After we had eaten we had a wander around and decided not to go to any of the theatres showcasing chefs, as it was so hot and they were quite packed. I then decided I needed something sweet and found a build your own cheesecake, where you could choose your base, the cheesecake and various toppings while my husband had a beer. The food was £7 a portion and it seemed this was the same throughout the show, the cheesecake was £4 and drinks were around £6+. We stayed for just under 2 hours. For those who were thinking of visiting you will spend a fortune and we both agreed it just lacked something so we left and enjoyed an afternoon in London.
We also had a great weekend at the baby shower for our first grandchild, you can read about it here and see what C brought for her niece, I never knew baby showers were so much fun.
I hope you all had a great August, what were your highlights from last month?
