three things

I decided to join the year in books from Laura at circle of pine trees. The idea behind it is a monthly recollection of the books one has read and a little outlook on the ones that one wants to read. As I am an avid reader and wanted to have some kind of "reading diary" on my blog anyway, I thought that this might be a good way to keep track over all those books that I am reading. I'm trying to write my first book-post on the weekend.

Look what finally made its way into our kitchen:

YES, a Jura coffee machine. We're so happy with it and I haven't been tired for days! ;-) It has cost more money than our TV, but for us it was really worth it. It's the new heart of our kitchen! 

We're going to London! Not now, but at the end of October. As I know that many of you readers come from the UK I ask you to share your London-tips with me! We have a hotel in Westminster, so we're really central! 
We have three days time. It's my first time in London so we will visit the obvious tourist attractions. But do you have any special tips for me? Any restaurants that have great and cheap food? Any bars that we really HAVE to go to? A really lovely book store? Anything special? I would really appreciate your help! 

Have a nice weekend you all! :)

  1. Oo, I'm in love with your coffee machine Emm! I just can't do without coffee first thing in the morning. How exciting you're coming to London! Have a look on www.opentable.co.uk for recommendations and special offers. How about a traditional English afternoon tea at one of the five star hotels? Definitely an experience and you won't want any dinner afterwards!

    1. Ah yes, I am in love with it myself! ;-) My man and I can't do without coffee either! No way I could do anything productive all day if I didn't drink at least three cups a day!

      Thanks for the tip, I will look at the website on the weekend. Not sure I can convince my man for afternoon tea in a nice hotel, I think he would want to do something with a little more action! ;-)

  2. Such a great coffee maschine! I am a tad bit jealous!

    HAve fun in London! I am in love with the city! If you like to read, you need to check out the Oxfam Bookshops. Great books for a bargain!

    Take care

    P.S. We are having a big give away this week! Lots of yarn to win... :-)

    1. it's so great! But it took us a while to save up the money for it! ;-)

      Oxfam bookshop - already wrote it down. And it would be an understatement to say that I like to read...I LOVE it! But if you read some of my posts, you will already know that! ;-)

      I took part in your give away. It's really lovely! Congratulations on your anniversary! :)

  3. Hooray on the coffee machine! I'm afraid that despite my Englishness I'm not that well acquainted with London, I know Berlin far better somehow! But, I do like going up to Camden. There is a great indoors market, and it's quite 'alternative' in parts so people watching is always great. it's a bit of a tourist trap and super expensive in places but Covent Garden is also a favourite :) and I love walking by the river!

    1. Camden is already on our list, as a friend of mine recommended it! And there will be A LOT of walking. City trips always have! ;)
