Here I am in London

I am posting from London & it is very exciting !
Lots of Christmassy shop windows & decorated city streets .
Crisp weather which I am really loving.
The main purpose of our trip is to spend Christmas with our two eldest children who are living & working here .




She no longer spoon feeds him & they hang out in the pub instead .




I would love to post some pictures of the trip but I have stupidly left my camera cable at home.
I have managed to check out some of my favourite fabric sources ... the Liberty of London store & Cloth House in Soho.
Cloth House sells beautiful linens , organic cottons , canvas ticking & a great range of vintage & new trims & ribbons ..... I was overwhelmed & unable to choose . Must go back .
Yesterday we walked all day , from Westminster over the Thames & all the way down the Thames walk to Tower Bridge with a stop at Borough Markets for a spot of lunch . Best roast pork roll !!!
Maybe Covent Garden & the Apple Market today & then we are off to Cornwall for a week.
Hope to post an update from there.

Oh, I saw you online on FB and assumed you were still in Qld, not quite left yet! Look how grown your babies are. Have a lovely, lovely Christmas. (Hope you did me proud at Liberty). :)

Have fun! So envious!

If you get to Borough market be sure to look out for a stall selling Lamb Pitta's. Chunks of marinated lamb, tatziki, rocket, feta, tomato...I used to go at least twice a month just for this!!
