Title? I don't need no stinkin' title.

How was your weekend? Ours was pretty much perfect, thanks for asking. Even though Saturday's weather was a bit "meh" (no rain, some sun, some clouds, temps just ever so slightly too chilly to sit outside in short sleeves). So we took to the movie theatre for a double bill. Indiana Jones for Jason and a second viewing of Sex and the City for me with a break in between the two at Maria's, our favorite restaurant in Fulham (our old 'hood - in which, aside from Maria's ridiculously good food, we were reminded about every five seconds exactly how much we dislike it and how stupidly happy we are that we left it for the splendor of Richmond).

Sunday dawned sunny and warm and everything that a London summer should be. In fact, it was downright hot. Hence the gelato queue stretching down the street...
I have to say that even though I'm so ready to move back to Raleigh, there are certainly worse places to while away a beautiful afternoon than on Richmond Hill.

Later that evening after dinner, Jason came into the living room and asked me to come with him upstairs. Why? So we could climb out of our skylight and onto the roof of our building to watch the sun set. Who says romance is dead?

Today was another perfect day and even though it's no longer the weekend, we decided that was no reason not to have a picnic dinner on the green. Then we had shadow puppet practice.

That beautiful 3rd picture is making me sing "Step In Time" and picture Julie Andrews spinning on a rooftop with a bunch of chimney sweeps!!

Nice pics! Shadow puppet is my favourite. It just says to me: "box of wine on a sunny day".
