Le Chic En Rose

Diaries of an independent traveller

Just back in London for the weekend before flying back to Perth via Hong Kong. Since my last post we have been visiting family in the West Country and Yorkshire and there hasn’t been much time for blogging. Have many photos though to translate into blog posts back home.

It’s snowing again and bitterly cold so a weekend for finding a nice warm pub and staying well rugged up! It’s been a long time since we’ve seen so much snow here in the U.K. especially in March. Funnily enough last night was quite mild and Mlle took us to an amazing Thai restaurant, Som Saa, in Commercial Street just south of the iconic Christ Church Spitalfields. I love the vibe of this fascinating area with a rich history of refugees, artisans and colourful characters each making their contribution to its unique charm. A bientot!

    You’ll not be sorry to get home! 🙂 🙂 Safe journey! My son is at a wedding in Matlock in the Peaks, God help him, and my daughter has opted to stay in bed to avoid the snow in Nottingham. I zumba’d- of course 🙂

    1. The snow has been a novelty for us Jo! Last time I saw any was in the Swiss Alps. It’s unbelievably cold here though!! We have missed a late summer heatwave back home – will be nice to get back to some warmth and sun. Hope you have a good weekend and stay well rugged up! 😃

    If I was to go back to Blighty for a visit I think I would choose Autumn and early autumn in case winter came early. Pub definitely the best place in that weather. Have a safe journey home

    1. Thanks Pauline! I was there last year in October (sadly my mother passed away) and it was quite pleasant so think that would be a good option! March can still be quite cold though it was unseasonably cold recently!

        Sorry to hear of the reason for your visit. Sometimes there is no choice on timing

        1. Thanks so much Pauline for your kind wishes. It’s the downside of moving so far away. It was a difficult time though not unexpected.
