Butterflies

It was nice actually getting out today to do SOMETHING and try to forget about our worries for at least a few hours. We went to the Natural History Museum and to the Butterfly Jungle exhibition. I was a tad disappointed as it seemed like there were hardly any butterflies!! I wanted more kind of like the really awesome experience I had @ London Zoo last year. Oh well, the few we saw were beautiful.

We then treated ourselves to lunch at Whole Foods Kensington. We desperately needed vitamins and a few speciality items that we find it difficult to get at our usual stores (like decent steel cut oatmeal and au natural flax seed corn chips) and then treated ourselves to a shared bowl of leek & potato soup, whole grain rolls and a huge nicoise salad with red wine vinagrette. Lunch was the cheapest...we spent an entire £11, not bad for London.
