Girlie Weekend at Borough Market

I went to London recently and visited Borough Market during what was dubbed the Weekend of Dreams. Five of my best girlfriends are now living in London so it is always a guaranteed weekend of laughs when I go down to visit. The Weekend of Dreams (aka WOD2012) was carefully coordinated around the much hyped Lady Gaga concert at Twickenham which was AMAZING.

I arrived in London on the Saturday lunchtime and after some cold pink bubbles on my friend's balcony in the sunshine we went to nearby Borough Market for fizz and food-fest. My friend has been wetting my appetite with everything Borough since she moved there earlier this year and I can see exactly why she loves her new neighbourhood.  

Borough Market is a food lover's heaven and being able to walk around with glasses of wine, sangria or spritzers makes it a booze lover's heaven too. We sampled olives, cheese, Caribbean curry and Thai curry and quickly realised one glass of fizz is just not enough so bought a bottle, sat on the pavement outside in the sunshine and loafed. It was the ideal Saturday afternoon and I can't wait to go back.
