Summer Reads Part 1

David Sedaris is an American comedian, author and radio contributor. His work is seriously funny and so well observed and when he reads his short stories himself, they are even better! Most of his material is autobiographical, about family life and his séjours in London, the South Downs and France. "Let's explore diabetes with owls" is his latest, but do check out "Me talk pretty one day", and don't spill your ice cream laughing.

Sales are on

The sales are on in London, summer clothes galore, but when you shop in your winter coat it seems to be only half the fun.

This is what caught our eyes instead at Joseph's in Fulham:

Summer Solstice

Dear Friends,

found here

I cannot believe that the longest day of the year has arrived and we are still waiting for the summer.

But, let's make the best of it and try to ignore the gloomy weather. Here are some dates, that should be able to distract you, and even better: they are all free!

Moon Gazing : Should the fog lift, we can enjoy a super moon on Saturday night

Whale watching in Greenwich

West End: free and live performances of West End musicals on Trafalgar Square

Fête de la Musique : at the Institut Francais this Saturday, and it is free, too!

And keep up your strength by visiting the intriguingly called Boutique Food Market at the Taste of London all weekend in Regent's Park.

Have a lovely weekend!
