I checked the Met office's website before leaving in the morning and it claimed blue skies all day, brilliant, I don't need waterproofs, how wrong I was. I didn't let this deter me though. I had wanted to visit Borough Market as I had never been and was a little too far away from where I worked to ever pop over.
I think it would have been better to have visited at a weekend as not many of the stalls were open, but lesson learned. Once the rain stopped, I thought I would take a walk back to "my part" of London, so walked all the way to Covent Garden from London Bridge and managed to grab a few photos along the way that encapsulate London. It was just a shame as it was raining and my camera did not like it too much (neither did my feet).
Arriving in Covent Garden, I had to go to the market there as Monday is antiques day so there are always good photo oppourtunities.
Unfortunately due to the rain there were no street performers so I wandered off to see what was going on in Leicester Square. As you can see, not a lot either, I am so used to it being bustling with people.
A rest from the rain was needed, so I popped into M&M world. I've seen many friends/family with kids show up on my facebook stream with visits here, so I thought why not. The first thing that hit me was the smell of M&Ms. You'd think this would be a good smell but got sickly very quickly. I had heard you could get every colour of M&Ms imaginable and it was true
I can see if you had money to spend on absolute rubbish, it being a fun shop, there was so much tat and different style clothing and lots of photo opportunities but it must have been the first time I have walked out of a chocolate shop empty handed.
It was now lunch time, off to Primani on Oxford Street and then to meet work friends. All in all a great day out, but I will return as a tourist in better weather to get some photos that really show off why I love London.
