Ok, I regularly bring you stories from my daily commute – the entertaining, touching, romantic and darn right jaw-dropping – so I thought it was about time I shared with you a little snippet of what I like to do when I’m not in full ‘Peak Time Tales’ mode. Enjoy, I certainly did!
Running is fast (well, not that fast) becoming one of my new best friends and with autumn in full swing, what better excuse than to lace-up and appreciate the season in all her colourful glory.
A gift voucher had been burning a hole in my pocket since last Christmas, so I thought it was about time I put it to good use and decided to treated myself to a gorgeous manicure. I felt completely at ease as soon as I set foot inside the beautifully refreshing, Relax Spa, London. I opted for a midnight blue shade with subtle gold flecks from beauty salon favourite, Jessica.
A quick peek at the always impressive display from, The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers, and I was well on my way. Next stop, The National Portrait Gallery, for Grayson Perry’s, ‘Who Are You?’ in conjunction with the Channel 4 TV series. If you’ve not yet seen the programme or viewed the exhibition, they are an absolute must – fast becoming my cultural favourites of 2014.
A personal favourite of mine was Perry’s piece entitled, Memory Jar. Depicting husband and wife Christopher & Veronica Devas, it illustrates their changing relationship as Christopher silently battles against Alzheimer’s disease (see previous blog post – https://peaktimetales.wordpress.com/2014/11/03/in-loving-memory/).
I’m always on the lookout for somewhere new and exciting to eat. Having a mostly vegan diet, I can say with confidence, that the choice is limited. There are occasions, however, when I jump off the vegan bandwagon and this weekend was one of them. I’d heard good things about the Mexican restaurant, Wahaca, and having eyed-up their menu, my tastebuds got the better of me dragging me kicking and screaming…ahem…to their Wimbledon branch.
Result! My tastebuds were well and truly tantalised and I can guarantee, Wahaca, was a welcomed addition to my palate.
There was only one thing to do on Sunday evening; sit back, switch off and enjoy the beautiful aromas from my newly purchased, True Grace, (Jasmine Tea) scented candle. Devine.
