Last weekend I took a trip to Greenwich with Charles to see the 'Stars to Satellites' exhibition at the Royal Observatory Greenwich. I used it as an opportunity to test out my new film camera - hopefully good pictures will soon follow when I get the film developed!

Greenwich market is one of my favourite places to buy vegan cake. I was certainly not disappointed with my slice of lemon and blueberry cake, which I paired with a cup of strong, black coffee. Unfortunately it defeated me - I only managed to eat half!

We took a stroll down Southbank in the sunshine to work off my cake and make room for more food. The Tate Modern bookshop beckoned for a peruse. I picked out a guide to all of the independent coffee shops in London.

Look at that basil mayo next to that burger, just look at it!

Dinner at Mildred's shortly followed. I had a huge butter-bean, black olive and pepper burger slathered in basil mayonnaise. The vegan basil mayonnaise itself was delicious - I must learn how to make it immediately.

There is a bus stop near Hamleys entirely made out of Lego. Lego! The bricks were firmly glued down to stop any of the 100,000+ pieces going missing. The busy tourist shelter was the last stop on our day out before heading to a friends leaving party. I ate the rest of my cake on the train home.
