Seeing and doing in London

Window shopping

New Look at Blackout 2, Endell Street, Covent Garden.

I love this coat! It was a bit beyond my budget (as my budget was allocated to handbags – which also came from here). I didn’t even dare try it on as it might have had to come home with me. And I’m not really a 50s girl.


Though I could be a Victorian….

Annie’s, Camden Passage, Islington.

Sun on sandstone, with figs.


I love China Town, especially on an all-but deserted, early Saturday morning, in the sunshine.

They could almost be buttons. Though as they are in a China Town supermarket they could be bits of animals, for all I know. But they looked nice through the window.

Best part of all, meeting up with friends old and new and sharing some cake-love.

Ok, not actually those cakes, as Ottolenghi’s was full to bursting. But just down the road was a less-glam caff with very delicious cake too.

I miss London.

  1. Oh I wish I lived in London – maybe one day…when my hubby’s childless favourite Aunt leaves us her house on the cost in the wilds of Scotland and we can move over there and I can do “trips” down to London. For an Aussies i’m sure the distance from Scotland to London is a mere hop, skip and jump.

Let me know what you think
