Last weekend was jam packed full of fun, family, friends and food…just how I like them.
The little dude was back at his swimming lessons on Saturday after the summer break and thankfully he still loved it. I was a bit nervous that after a 4 week break he might need some time to get used to it, but I really needn't of worried…
After swimming we headed east to Columbia Road...
|I love this piece of street art, not the best pic as it was out of the car window!|
but not to the flower market (its only open on Sunday's) instead we were there to visit a very different kind of corner shop…
Hopefully you can see from the pictures that all the stock was made of felt, such a fun idea.
On our way back home we popped into 'Look Mum No Hands' for Mr O and the little dude to catch the end of the 8th stage of the Spanish Vuelta and to refuel on coffee and cakes! If you are into cycling a visit to this cafe is a must. Not only are the cakes delicious, there are all kinds of bike related paraphernalia.

|the little dude wasn't pleased about missing out on cake again…not long until you're on solids little one!|
On Sunday we headed over to Battersea Power Station with my brother and sister and a couple of friends to catch the last day of the Power of Summer festival….we were all pretty overwhelmed with the choice of street food available and the amazing setting. Battersea Power Station is one of the most iconic buildings in London so it was great to have an opportunity to get a bit closer
|these cranes could unload 480 tonnes of coal an hour between them!|

|that grapefruit collins is not for you I'm afraid!|
