A Sober Day Out

Friday dawned a lovely blue sky day.

All Souls ChurchIt stayed that way well into the afternoon too. Some of the gorgeous weather was missed while we traveled into the West End.

We were going there for a treat for myself that Kathy had bought for me earlier in the year.  A pampering at Ted’s Grooming Room in Mortimer Street just a short walk from Oxford Circus.

I had my hair cut and styled; hot towels; a cut-throat shave and an arm massage.

Afterwards, we headed around the corner to Byron for lunch. Burger at ByronAs I’m trying to cut out wheat this month, I went for the bunless option with a side salad instead.

Afterwards we took a few photographs around All Souls Church, and then we walked towards Tottenham Court Road and Holborn.

We browsed in a few shops along the way, and then headed towards Neal’s Yard and Seven Dials.

Carrying on, we ended up on Shaftesbury Avenue and then diverted into Chinatown, where we stopped for a meal.

We also picked up some Asian products in a couple of supermarkets along the way too.  We ended up grabbing a slice of cake and a cappuccino by Leicester Square station before taking the Underground and bus home.

Ended up walking around three or four miles in total, and doing over ten thousand steps.
