Sundays in Primrose Hill

Ah! Primrose Hill...when the sun is shining makes you fall in love with London all over again!
No filter needed! Uninterrupted views all the way to financier's beehive a.k.a. Canary Wharf from the top of the Hill!



On Sundays you must always make time to provide decent fuel for your tummy! You'll often catch me saying that if you want a decent Sunday roast, you'd better head out of London to the Cotswolds, or to one of the villages along the Thames, or even better stay home and make one yourself! But I also think that the roast pork belly in The Engineer fits the bill just fine! Unfortunately it doesn't come with Yorkshires but it does come with roast potatoes and apples, buttery curly kale and root vegetables.
This buzzing gastro pub was full of natural light last Sunday and we were luckily sat next to one of the floor-to-ceiling windows that let the sunshine in; it brightens the mood and enhances your appetite, not that mine needs particular enhancing... but it's Sunday, you have to give yourself a break. Do book in advance because we got there around 1ish and the place was already full. A little boy from a neighbouring table decided we were appropriate audience for his magic trick and he just walked over to our table to impress us with shaking a glass jar with two big dice to - magically - turn them into four smaller dice. "Oh bravo sweetie", you'd hear me saying. "It's a very expensive trick", he says..."one pound each", he says and he didn't even blink! eerm..."What's your name sweetie, have you had your lunch yet?" me trying to hide my surprise and secret admiration thinking...this kid will be successful in life. 

Off to burn off the roast with a brisk walk around this colourful little London village. Vibrant home fronts and sunshine around Chalcot Street and Chalcot Square.
                 
So...if Mary Poppins met Alice in Wonderland for tea it'd look something like this...
You can run away abroad in search of your perfect yoga spot but I love this area because strolling around the quite streets makes you slow down and take time to appreciate your surroundings; isn't that the ultimate (realistic) goal for us weekday-yoga enthusiasts? A bit of a welcoming feel and tranquillity around your everyday routine. x
