Green green grass of home

Did you know we've been away?
We got back from a month in Australia at 5:00 am this morning having been travelling for 30 hours.
Just before we went away we had artificial grass 'laid' in our courtyard which has really transformed it - even Saffie approves of it.
Our journey begins on the blog when we have caught up on our sleep - don't go away!

London Pub Walk 6

Back through Smithfield Market to our final stop.
Interesting mention of 'the wife sale' where men brought their unwanted wives to sell

Strange assortment of phone boxes?

London Pub Walk 1

The walk was around the Smithfield area of London.
We started off at Ye Olde Mitre which was down a tiny alley between numbers 9 and 10 Ely Place
