On sunday Brockwell Lido played host to the Modern Movement Design Fair. Stalls and dealers set-up their wares around the pool. There was SO MUCH nice stuff - beautiful scandinavian furniture, awesome 60s/70s lamps, some gorgeous 50s looking fabric. Almost all of it completely unaffordable for the likes of me but it was fun to mooch about. After a bit of convincing haggling, I ended up coming away with a vintage tablecloth (which I intend to use as a picnic blanket) and my friend bought this super cute french book about Romeo the dog. Tres bon!
Sunday evening saw, what can only be described as, a dinner of epic proportions. First off my friend Alex made a gigantic pizza (sadly there are no images due to the fact that we basically inhaled it - it tasted amazing)! Followed by the most delicious blueberry pie ever (lucky I did pause to take a pic but it really doesn't do it justice). I've asked Alex for the recipes for both these dishes as I need the pizza and pie in my life at regular intervals.
Thanks to the dinner from heaven on sunday (which we didn't actually finish eating until about 1:30am - yeah I told you it was epic), Mitch and I did a lot of walking on monday. We headed over to Brixton Windmill and managed to catch a little tour of the building. I won't bore you with tonnes of information but I will tell you this: It is seriously old - built in 1816, the mill is older than most of the surrounding area, including all the houses, the factory site and the prison. And it's holding up pretty well thanks to a lottery funded restoration and the work of volunteers. After a look inside the windmill we walked to Clapham for a stroll around the common and a sit down amongst the daisies. A chilled out evening was topped off by the latest episode of game of thrones.
Also over the weekend I got on with some crochet - my nan recently gave me a bag of wool she doesn't need so I'm making good use of it - and spent some quality time with moriarty. Hope you all had a fabulous weekend too!
