This week I will be:
- wishing I lived in beautiful boutique B&B – No 38 The Park. Despite torrential rains and endless work (for Mr F), our recent trip to the Cotswolds was made absolutely worth it by our stay at No 38. Not only are the rooms perfectly designed (hello, free standing bathtub!) and chock full of great local products (Rare Tea Company, 100 Acres Apothecary), they also have a TV loaded up with all the latest movies and a perfectly cooked breakfast. And if you can’t find a room at No 38, try out the Old Stocks Inn in Stow-on-the-Wold which has just been renovated and serves cake to all guests at tea time (’nuff said)!
- watching the Lego movie. Maybe I’m a bit late to the party but this movie is absolutely awesome! Who thought Lego was just for kids. Very funny and probably the best ad for Lego ever (disguised as a full length movie). Now does anyone want to lend me a little kid so I can go buy some Lego!!?
- cracking up at the Wunderkammer at the National History Museum. You know how you’ve always wondered what would happen if talks by the super science-y researchers from the Natural History Museum were somehow transformed into a hilarious improv comedy show by the excellent comedians from Do Not Adjust Your Stage? Well wunder no more (see what I did there with the wunderkammer). A most enlightening (who knew that if you touch a butterflies wings it won’t die) and hilarious evening at the NHM afterhours – highly recommend!
- feasting at the Jar Kitchen, a quirky little resto near Covent Garden which specialises in locally sourced tasty food. Tables are cosy and rustic. Mr F and I recommend the oxtail and the seabass ceviche starter, monkfish for main was delicious and ANY dessert on the menu (but mainly the Eton mess and the chocolate ganache). The lovely people at Jar Kitchen gave us free desserts and 25 per cent off because our main was late. That makes it pretty much the best meal – ever!
