Saturday with Masumi-san
Saturday 15th August 2015
The Saturday of Masumi-san's 3 night stay with us - went for lunch at Ishbilia in Knightsbridge.
London August 2015
Espresso and one of those inexplicably nice little biscuits from Poilaine.
Erika at breakfast.
The grapes on our vine.
Better picture of the other bunch.

Taken from a different angle so the guy the other side of the window wouldn't be in shot.
Chie and Masumi-san.
Me and Erika.
Erika with an ice cream (actually sorbet) which was far too big for her, at Olivogelo.
Later on I walked to St. James's while Erika was asleep in her buggy. Slightly fascinated by this recently reopened pub, the Blue Posts, the building ot occupies was completely demolished and rebuilt, but odd the pub reopened with the same name in the same location.
My little bit of early evening relaxation out in the garden once the lasagne I made for dinner had been bunged in the oven, and the kitchen had been cleaned - a Negroni and those little fish shaped snacks from Norway.
Chie poking her head round the patio doors.
Finally a strawberry on our strawberry plant!
Tonight's Gevrey Chambertin - Olivier Bernstein's 1er Cru "Les Champeaux".
The girls all went to bed early and my presence was no longer required, so I snuck off to the Camden Town Brewery (actually in Kentish Town) which has a bar on site.
