My favourite lunchtime flower spot strikes again. #bloom #greenlondon #florallondon #lunchtimestroll #littlesnippetofbeauty
A spot of whist on Easter Sunday. Learning the game lore with a few choice phrases: "No tea on the green baize!" "Put aces on kings, that's what they're for." Playing with a partner, wondering what to play when going third? "You're communicating, a signal, like code... High, like; low, hate."
"Second plays low, third plays high." In the final no trumps round play your fourth lowest of a suit (at least), UNLESS you've King, Queen, Jack, then start high."
And, after all that, this from Gran: "I wouldn't worry about your Dad's rules, you'll only get confused." #whist #rules #cardtable #cardgame
Lancaster landmarks adorn this bowl, a hen party gift from lovely Jean and Peter. #lancaster #northernhen
Morecambe's iconic Midland hotel, a gleaming white cool curve looking out to sea. One of my favourite places in the world. We celebrated Gran's 80th here, today it was my turn! H/t to @sophie_ellis_ for the snap. #hendo #bridetobe #northernhen
Starting gun for wedding season well and truly sounded with the #northernhen, thanks @rebelchetz for this #Polaroid. #photography #bridetobe #hendo
Ellis girls gathered for my #northernhen in time for the Grand National. Gran's pick One For Arthur romped home out of nowhere.
LCV Kin choir smashing it with more animal print, glitter and sweet harmonies than you can shake a light sabre at... loving it @sophie_ellis_ and co 😍#badromance #choireoke #london #music #gigs
The ultimate opportunist. Spotted earlier. Lunch must be peak time to hunt for ice cream eaters 🍦 #icecream #lunchbreak #99flake #london
Sun's out, sneaking its way through shady branches in this work break, lunchtime stroll hotspot. #worklife #lunchbreak #london
Lincoln's Inn field packed as London tastes pre-Easter sunshine. #lunchbreak #lunchtimeblooms #sunseekers #worklife
Medicine-style bottle of Botucal, a super smooth-drinking Venezuelan rum sampled straight (no coke mixer or on the rocks treatment for this feller). Fruity, aromatic, slightly sweet, this has apparently been all the rage in rum circles, so the German business folk I met last night tell me... #latetotheparty There's an intriguing battle over its name which is Diplomatico in Venezuela but apparently Lidl registered that name first in Germany, so I was told by a drinks raconteur. I need to fact check that - but it certainly adds a nice air of mystique! #rum #Germanydrinks #Venezuela #Stuttgartbars
Stuttgart's Liederhalle. It seems to me like an equivalent of London's Barbican centre, with conference areas right alongside public social spaces. There's a CineMaxx, it's next door to the university campus, and very green. #workinglife #worktravels #Stuttgart #Germany
