Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Roof Garden Restaurant

 This is the roof of John Lewis Department store on Oxford Street. It has become a temporary garden restaurant for Summer. Yesterday I decided to have lunch there before it closes at tbe end of this week. The type of food changed each month as a new pop up retsaurant moved into the garden. This month it was a BBQ menu. I had a beef brisket burger which was very tasty.
 I was all set to indulge in a dessert but being the end of the Summer the wasps were out in force and made eating anything sweet impossible.
An unusual venue for lunch on Oxford Street.

  4. The wasps would have given me pause, but it sure does look like a great place to eat in fair weather. :-)

  9. I wonder if they are what we call European wasps which are quite large. They peaked here in the 1990s but I haven't seen one for a long time.

  10. I really like the 'pop up' type places - cities dont always have to be the same week in week out.

  11. Sure is unusual bad news about the wasps. Good for the weight though.

  12. Fabulous idea of a place for a pop up restaurant ... what fun. Sorry 'bout the wasps, but know exactly what you mean; they love their sugar. hope you found an indoor spot to indulge -- it's no good to have your mind made up for dessert and then not get it.
