Sunday in Highgate Village -Sunnuntai Highgaten kylässä

As my dad was in town we wanted to take him to one of our favourite pubs The Red Lion and the Sun that I mentioned in my blog post a few weeks ago. This pub is located in Highgate. As the weather was wonderful we thought we would have a lovely walk there. First we crossed our beautiful local park and then showed my dad the high street in Highgate Village.

Koska isäni oli Lontoossa viikonloppuna ajattelimme viedä hänet lempipubiimme The Red Lion and the Sun, josta olenkin jo aiemmin kirjoitellyt blogispostauksessani. Tämä pubi sijaitsee Highgatessa Lontoossa. Ensin kävelimme halki kauniin läheisen puistomme ja sitten suuntasimme kohti Highgatea.

The Highgate Pantry.

I have probably said this multiple times before but I love these small pockets of London that are like villages with all the independent shops, bakeries, butchers, fishmongers, green grocers and cute boutiques. The Highgate Pantry bakery had a mouthwatering window!

Olenkin jo aiemmin sanonut useaan kertaan, että rakastan Lontoon pieniä itsenäisiä kylämäisiä yhteisöjä. Etenkin pohjois Lontoo on täynnä näitä pieniä kaupunginosia kuten Highgate, Hampsted, Highbury, Stoke Newington, Primrose Hill, Winchmore Hill, Muswell Hill, Crouch End. Ne kaikki seuraavat samaa kaavaa. Kylämäisen osan läpi vie high street, joka on täynnä mitä ihanaisimpia kahviloita ja puoteja lihakauppa, kalakauppa ja vihanneskauppa mukaan lukien. The Highgate Pantry leipomolla oli upea ikkuna.

Some amazing looking lolly cupcakes in The Highgate Pantry.

I usually try not to support the chains, but Le Pain de Quotidien has quality food and all organic too!

Yritän useimmiten välttää ketjuja, mutta Le Pain de Quotidien on loistava. Ruoan laatu on hyvää ja kaikki luomua.

A lovely fruiterers in Highgate. — Ihana hedelmäkauppa Highgatessa.

The place called Limone in Highgate has a great selection of dairy and gluten free cakes. So all of you who are looking for finding some special diet coffee places in North London, this is one for you! Yesterday Limone had a tasty selection of special diet treats and one particularly interesting cake -lemon rosemary cake that was dairy free! Inspired by this, I will definitely bake some lemon drizzle cake next week when our cooker will be finally fixed. British Gas promised it to be ready next Monday -finally! Fingers crossed.

Jos etsit erityisruokavalioon sopivaa kahvipaikkaa Pohjois-Lontoossa Limone Highgatessa on mahtava. Se tarjoaa kotitekoisia maidottomia ja gluteiinittomia kakkuja. Yksi mielenkiintoisemmista oli sitruuna-rosmariini kuivakakku. Kuulosti tosi herkulliselta! Sen innoittamana aion ehdottomasti leipoa sitruunakakkua ensi viikolla, kun uunimme vihdoin pitäisi olla kunnossa. British Gas lupasi tänään, että maanantaina 14.10 uuni on korjattu. Toivottavasti, sillä rakkaan aussimieheni syntymäivät lähenevät kovaa vauhtia ja haluan kokata ihanaista illallista syntymäpäiväiltana!

Waterlow Park in Highgate is super beautiful! I recommend a walk in there! I had a lovely Sunday, hopefully you had a relaxing weekend too!

Waterlow puisto Highgatessa on todella kaunis. Suosittelen kävelyä siellä! MInulla oli upea sunnuntaipäivä. Oli niin ihanaa nähdä isää! Toivottavasti teilläkin oli rentouttava viikonloppu!

My lovely neighbourhood – Ihana asuinalueeni

I joined today the club of running pram mothers when instead of my usual morning walk I found myself running with the pram. I love running in the park and breathing fresh autumn air! It is nice to get back to running again although I have to say that it is actually quite tough to run uphill and push the pram at the same time. It is a real workout if I have ever felt one.

It took me a couple of months to get used to our new neighbourhood as this is much more residential than the previous area we lived in. Now I have to admit I have fallen in love with this new one . I love peaceful streets, beautiful parks, buggies that I see everywhere, huge and well kept houses and gardens. Everywhere you walk you see that this is home not a place where you would rent a flat and not stay for a long time.

I usually do two walks a day with my little baby girl and I thought I would share with you my morning walk views as I find them quite beautiful.

The ponds in the park are pretty.

The autumn has arrived as you can see from the colours.

One of the most gorgeous streets in our neighbourhood.

One house on this street is just bigger than another..this one has 12 windows on one side -just amazing!

Image

So peaceful. I am still only 35 minutes away form Oxford Circus believe it or not!

Image

I think this house is one of the most beautiful ones and for me this is what England is all about. Country style houses and big beautiful gardens.

Our lovely local pub where we went to last weekend. This fire place space is like from some ones living room. So cosy!

English pubs, so pretty! We have such a great selection of pubs in our area. All of them gastropubs that serve superb and delicious restaurant quality food. They are also very family friendly but in the evening you are guaranteed to see some mothers having their night off from babysitting duties and wearing their nicest clothes on!
