Tea Time

Oh hi! So, the first Tea Time post seemed to go down rather well, so I thought I’d follow up with another on my fab life and wild adventures *ahem.*

The recently opened Central Picturehouse is gorgeous and a great addition to the shit bit of London around the Trocadero in Piccadilly where there are two of the worst crappy London merchandise tourist shops ever (if you admit to going in one I’m not sure we can be friends…). Anyway, the cinema interior is very classy looking and the popcorn tip top. Not a budget friendly cinema as tickets in the weekends cost £18.

I’m not even a huge fan of matcha, but the French Toast with matcha ice cream at Shackfuyu is so good it will make you weep with joy. I still cry occasionally just remembering it, and writing this post has flooded my keyboard with tears.

So, I killed a cactus. Good thing they are soooo spring 2015. RIP. I will bury you I promise, so you don’t come back to haunt me with ghostly spines!

Me and a group of bloggers were invited by the English Heritage to check out three locations on Hadrian’s Wall. Me and Hadrian go way way back and it was great to see a few of his hang outs, these Instax sneek peaks are from Chesters. And best of all, I can cross one thing off my UK Wanderlist.

Another stop was the Boiler Shop Steamer. Nope, it’s not a sauna or a giant steam bath, but a hip food warehouse-based food market where you can eat, dance, look at art and generally enjoy yourself til late.

We stayed at the Sleeperz Hotel in Newcastle. The place has fast WiFi and a decent shower, but I wasn’t a big fan of the rock hard mattress, I may or may not be still working out some kinks in my back!

The Housesteads site was my favourite and not only because it reminded me a lot of Game of Thrones. Sadly there were no hot Snows, Starks or Lannisters to be seen, but this soldier’s story on his day in the life was compelling and helped build a world in my head which I swear didn’t have a TV show theme tune.

Then there was The Cookhouse, where we had a delicous meal. How Pinterestworthy is this place? You’ll read about the above soon.

I binge-watched Wet Hot American Summer: the First Day of Camp and it did not disappoint. How often can you watch a show where Archer is a can of vegetables and Jon Hamm is a secret agent…Well there wasn’t enough Hamm on the menu, and far too many terrible 80s haircuts but you know, no one’s perfect…Now what do I do the coming 15 years?

Floor of the week.

Coming home starving and having one of your favourite foods ready for you is the dream!

How has August been treating you so far?

  1. Is it August 12th already? This month is going by way too quickly for my liking. I started watching Wet Hot American Summer, but couldn’t really get into it. I only made it part way through the first episode. From your positive review, I think I will have to give it another try.


  2. i LOVE green tea so that ice-cream sounds heavenly! I’m loving this Tea Time series, hope there’ll be another one 🙂
