I can’t believe the summer is almost over. R and M go back to school on Thursday. Two and a half months have flown by. We have recently returned from a wonderful vacation in London. Such a fun city. Along with the usual tourist things (London Eye, Buckingham Palace) we went to some of our old haunts; Providores, Marylebone High Street, the Kings Road. The shopping was incredible. John Lewis is a wonderful department store with the most fantastic haberdashery. We also went to the V & A (Victoria and Albert museum) to look at the dresses (wonderful) and Asian wing. The fabrics are dazzling and inspiring. I brought R a replica Princess Diana/Dutchess Catherine wedding ring. It’s really lovely and R is delighted with it.
