Yesterday was Sam's birthday, and I took out her for afternoon tea today at the Checkmate Bar at the Park International Hotel, in South Kensington. Lovely chic and stylish surroundings, and sweet baby sandwiches and cakes, a scone (both Devon and Cornwall style!) plenty of Earl Grey and a glass of fizz to round it off. Delish! I was also relieved the baby didn't decide to make an appearance; hopefully not until the due date,16th, as Sam has so many plans until then!
Keeping up the black and white theme, look at this fabulous piece of Art Nouveau ironwork at Gloucester Road tube station.
