The British Postal Museum Store01

Before joining the pillow fight yesterday afternoon in Trafalgar Square, in the morning we went to The British Postal Museum & Archive’s Museum Store open day in Debden.

We lost our selves between old letter boxes, pillar boxes, old Royal Mail cars and motorcycles, etc, we saw the first British pillar postal box used in Channel Islands between the island and the mainland  and we really enjoyed the visit.

The British Postal Museum & Archive’s Museum Store open day is a nice visit for oldie-goldie lovers, Royal Mail letter box fans, is a free event but they accept donations, is very easy to reach (take the Central Line underground to Debden, then walk 3 minutes, the footpath is perfectly indicated). For the next events and to see how to get there, you can check the museum’s web site. They deserve definitely more attention.

International Pillow Fight Day01 2013

International Pillow Fight Day02 2013

Today another colorful flash-mob activity took place in our little kingdom. The International Pillow Fight Day celebrated by Londoners at the Trafalgar Square in London.

Despite some dirty fighters who were fighting with synthetic pillows and who were distroying all the charm of flying feathers, it was fun. During one hour, bravehearths battled like crazy. All of us finished the day covered by feathers (and maybe with some small damage in our little grey cells) but smiling.

Happy International Pillow Fight Day!

Norman Parkinson01

Today we made a photography exhibition hat-trick with some stops in between. First we visited Dorothy Bohm’s Sixties London exhibition in Proud Chelsea Gallery in King’s Road. Dorothy Bohm, born in 1924 in Konigsberg, came to Britain when she was fifteen and since then she is based in the United Kingdom. The exhibition consist of artist’s black and white photos taken in London in sixties and is open until 28 April 2013.

We don’t like much big chains and since two years we were talking about trying Pizza Express at least once while we live in London but we were choosing always other alternatives. Today, while we were in Chelsea, finally we tried Pizza Express in King’s Road, in a lovely Georgian building where also lived the ballet dancer Princess Seraphine Astafieva between 1916-34. Result: Nice thin pizza but with a poor quantity of topping, the Merlot we drank was good, the service and smiling faces were excellent.

Light from the Middle East01

After making happy the belly and stopped in Anthropologie for a quick shopping, we walked to the Victoria & Albert Museum to visit Light from the Middle East: New Photography exhibition. The exhibition consist of various Middle Eastern artist’s work from different countries, with different approaches and diffrent techniques and open until 7 April 2013 (only one more day!).

After visiting the exhibition we stopped for tea time in Victoria & Albert Museum’s lovely cafe with it’s amazing decoration. Then we jumped on a underground and headed to the last exhibition of the day, Lifework: Norman Parkinson’s Century of Style in National Theatre. The exhibition is covering all aspects of British fashion photographer Norman Parkinson’s (1913-1990) works since thirties until his death and is open until 12 May 2013.

Pickering Street in Angel, is one of the streets we pass at least once a day. When we moved first to Islington, there wasn’t any graffiti in this street. Then appeared the girl with the dog, then during the Diamond Jubilee appeared The Queen, then weightlifter boy and finally the dog. Each time we walk in Essex Road and pass through Pickering Street, we check if another street art work appeared. So far we have:

I believe in Angels…
