Family Time in London

Oh hey'all!

Good evening babes, and happy Friday! 

It's been over a month since I last posted and I wanted to start sharing what I've been up to lately!

On one super busy weekend my wonderful little brother came to stay with me and pops in London. 
Come see what we got up to...

We started off our adventure by Shadwell Basin, then made our way along to Limehouse.

After a windy walk on the Thames Path we found ourselves in Canary Wharf - for small town people like us the giant buildings made us feel like we were in NYC!

Naturally after all that walking we were in need of some subsistence. And seeing as we were in good ole London town we thought we should go for a classic pub lunch. We'd heard rumours that Gandalf (Sir Ian sir Mckellen) owned a pub in Limehouse, so we made our way back and hunted out The Grapes.

It was very traditional and cozy, and was amazingly good value! We all plucked for a cheese burger and were thoroughly impressed. If you like good old fashioned no-fuss food then I would highly recommend The Grapes! But get there early as seating is limited!

After a burger and a beer we walked back home for a snooze, feeling much heavier! 

After an hour's rest we headed back out and walked towards Tower Bridge...

Near Bank we stumbled across the remains of a war-bombed church and found ourselves in a beautifully-calm haven in the centre of London.

Next we visited the building where grandpa used to work...

Finally, we strolled across the Millennium Bridge feeling like contestants on The Apprentice! 

And just before going home we stopped for half a pint at The Dickens Inn in St Katharine's Docks.

Despite not having beautiful weather, it was a fantastic day.

It was so great to see my little bro again. I'm very lucky to be such good friends with him, and our relationship has only got better as we've gotten older.
So if you're someone who struggles with a sibling, don't give up - one day you will realise you've had a best friend all along!
