One way to get me to do something, or for me to get my bum in gear, is for there to be a reward.
Sunday morning had a great treat awaiting me. All I had to do was an eight mile walk which finished at Buckingham Palace and then the treat was breakfast from Pret A Manger (mango and lime salad and an almond croissant) and a coffee (Iced Vanilla Coffee) from Starbucks. But the real treat came after mum and I had grabbed our goodies. We went to see the flowers outside Buckingham Palace and walked through St. James’s Park. I did the same last year and you can see the photos here.
I don’t know what had me more excited walking the pavement at 7am – the coffee or the flowers. I think it was 50/50!
London is gearing up for the Royal Wedding in three weeks and marquees take up a lot of the grass in Green Park with large TV studios being built on the Mall.
Buckingham Palace was looking beautiful. I always have a *pinch me* moment when I see it, I lived pretty close but I am always so grateful to live in London when I see the palace and all the other buildings around. The flower beds were filled with yellow wallflowers and red or burgundy tulips.
St James’s Park was a riot of colour
Actually, looking through the photos this afternoon, I think the flowers were the best treat of doing the walk.
Do you plan to watch the Royal Wedding? Are you interested in it at all? I would love to know your thoughts.
