I loved London, no, I love London. One week was not long enough!
Yes there was some rain (but mostly sun!), yes it was busy and bustling, especially in the touristy areas, the Olympics were about to start and it was the same temperature in Summer as it was in Sydney’s Winter, but I absolutely loved it.
I had the pleasure of meeting up with some lovely ladies, including Tilly (we wandered around Liberties and discussed sewing classes while ooh’ing and ahh’ing at the pretty (and rather expensive) fabric and wares).
We did the London Eye, Tower of London and went to Claridges for afternoon tea. We wandered the vintage packed streets of Bricklane and ended up in Spitafield markets where I bought 2 gorgeous hat bands from a lovely lady (I wore one to afternoon tea). We ate at pubs, scoffed pork pies and ate mushy peas (erm, gross, just don’t even go there…). We visited the Stone Henge (where I tried really hard to feel the Gregorian vibes but couldn’t), wandered around pretty Bath (where I bought shoes, naturally) and just enjoyed the pretty quaint-ness that is England.
I’m sure I’ll be back soon…
