London Sunday - Afternoon Tea

Bean and I getting excited for the Van Gogh action!

We jumped on the tube from the Brick Lane Market and headed over to Trafalgar Square.  I had seen online that the National Gallery has borrowed one of the Van Gogh Sunflower paintings from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and as a big fan of Van Gogh I was super excited to pop in to get a glimpse.  I was't however quite expecting the 40 min queue! Not so fun!

Anyway, we managed to get in and see them for about a minute before we had to head over to the Haymarket Hotel.  

Very Snazzy!  We sat down for afternoon tea and I was definitely impressed.  The interior is very funky and there was a nice atmosphere.  We had a selection of scones, sandwiches and cakes accompanied by tea and champagne.

It was so nice to catch up with everyone and have a girly afternoon out.  Last time we were all together was a year ago at the spa for my Hen Do, so it brought back some lovely memories.

I miss spending time with the girls, and nothing beats spending time with people you've known forever.

Here's to the summer when, fingers crossed, there are a few occasions where we will all be together.
