London Calling











Sun in London? yeah! Enjoyed the market day in Portobello after a fun Phipps family hang at Tooting Commons. So nice to see kids at the local common playing soccer with parents catching up on gossip and other news. Ellis is a great player and was excited for the big cheerleading squad.

Went to Queen Elizabeth hall to check out Jarvis Cocker's "Meltdown" festival. The Saturday eve event was all about old school dj's spinning northern soul and all the classics of the Mod movement. Young and old stylish brits doing the northern soul shuffle on the sunken dancefloor and lots of style watching. A solid London experience for sure.

Ended up on the night bus at trafalgar square for a long ride home amidst the late nighters. That in itself is an experience. Next morning Chelsea disappeared on his vespa and reappeared with pastries from a french bakery. Hot almond croissants and Melanie's perfect cup of Lady Grey tea made Sunday, father's day, off to a good start. Ended up at the local cinema house for a film and then to Clapham Common for pints and a late night southern Indian meal. SO GOOD. I love London's Indian food scene. incredible. We will return to London for our last night, and will join Chelsea and Melanie at Chez Bruce for Chelsea's birthday.
