Dinner in the garden I think (or at least pre dinner snacks), a spot of sabrage, and more raspberry picking.

Courtauld, Middle Temple and The Thames

Went to visit the Courtauld Gallery at lunchtime with Jeremy, then later on met up with Gemma (who was visiting from the US again) and the usual suspects for a varied evening taking in the Middle Temple Champagne Bar, the Thames Clipper, the O2 (yea not really a highlight) and finally the Angel in Bermondsey.
Blu Tack, Murger Han and Crick Institute

Took Erika to buy Blu Tack in the morning (!), followed by an inspection of the garden, then lunch at Murger Han, and then a visit to the open day at the Crick Institute.
Sunday 24th June 2018
Finally got round to hiring a car to take our hedge trimmings to the local recycling centre - Erika came along for the ride and it made for a bizarre but surprisingly nice father-daughter moment. Afterwards a quick lunch at the Pineapple, then we headed down to near Clapham Junction for a barbecue at Chie's friend's house, before I finally rounded off the day with a quick visit to Frank's in Peckham.
