three summers ago nick and i watched an outdoor movie up on the rooftop at the queen of hoxton. we sat amongst the east london skyline on canvas chairs, snuggled in giant blankets and watching a projected movie, listening through headphones, it was a pretty fun night.
well...the other weekend we returned to find that it had been transformed into a woodland winter wonderland with open fires, a giant tipi and toadstools!
we sat next to the open fire, toasting marshmallows. nick washed his down with an 'egg snog' from a tin can, and for me, i warmed up with a 'hot buttered rum'. it was such a lovely way to spend a cold january night.
i have to say my favourite part was sitting next to the fire. i just love that smell, it brings back so many childhood memories of being outdoors on cold winter nights, keeping warm beside the fire. the best bit was how the smell permeated into our coats and hair and the 'outdoor fire' smell lingered for a few days longer, it was bliss.isn't it just dreamy? a great idea though, turn your rooftop into a cozy woodland for winter!
