Rolling Stones @ Hyde Park

Saturday was the hottest day of the year, as people grabbed their picnic blankets, bikini tops and sunscreen, Ben and I readied ourselves for a trip to the cold, dark relief of the cinema. Not even joking. We saw 'Now You See Me' - good film. Afterwards, we headed to Hyde Park because, fabulous girlfriend that I am, I got Ben and I tickets to see Rolling Stones at the British Summer Time festival-type-thing.

First thing, we needed to decide what we were going to have for dinner. Again, spoilt for options!

I went for tomato and mozarella gnocchi. A-yum!

Ben went for the ostrich burger - which he enjoyed....I had a bite, but I think I prefer regular beef!

After satisfying our hunger we grabbed some dessert...

CHECK these guys out. They have a website - see it here - so many flavours of popcorn - I tried this one and their 'cheese on toast' one. It tasted so much like cheese on toast it was ridiculous. Felt like that scene in Willy Wonka when Violet tries the chewing gum that tastes like a roast dinner. Anyway, back of salty caramel popcorn and Ben and I decided to sit and enjoy the sun a while.
