Sunday 13th May 2018
Went for dim sum at our usual haunt with friends for lunch then pottered fairly aimlessly about for the remainder of the afternoon.
London May 2018
Erika fixing one of her toys in the morning.
At Joy King Lau with Chie's friend and her sons (who are of course therefore also Erika's friends).
The boys looking mischievous. Not sure portrait mode quite knew what to do here.
Erika and the boys.
Erika and her friends in the Lego shop.
Bar Italia for a quick post lunch coffee.
I took this picture as an example of some annoying characteristics of modern London restaurant menus - a lot of the dishes just appear to be a list of ingredients, and prices never seem to have pound signs or the amount in pence formatted to two digits.
Back in Kentish Town, some wisteria.
Spotted the first few baby apples of the year on the apple tree!
However the grape vines are not doing so well.
The raspberry bush is coming on well.
....but again, not very happy grape vines. I started to wonder is this in fact phylloxera?
The underside of the leaf.
Went out to do shopping for dinner and spotted this cat seemingly staring at this drainpipe (it turned its head when I stopped to take the photo).
