Since you asked…


For those of you who may be interested – mother and daughter are having a ball in London. Getting set up, settled in, settled down and simply settled. Shopping for essentials. Shopping for fun.

A West End theatre trip, tour of London, Leicester Square and Covent Garden restaurant meals. A Sunday trip to Camden Market. Discovery of a huge shopping mall a mere ten minutes walk away and a  comfy little hostelry a handy four doors from the new home.

What’s not to like? Loads to do, see, eat, buy! Not necessarily in that order, but all achieved with the panache and style expected of two such determined thrill seekers/fashionistas!!!!!

As you will have witnessed, our girls are nothing if not intrepid explorers. The apple really didn’t fall far from the tree. And this has proven to be a wonderful bonding-fest for both!

And – since you ask – YES, a coat has already been purchased!!!! (Well – no point going to London and returning without London glamour, is there????)

About xtrekki

OK - I've been doing this for almost a year now and have still not mastered the mysteries of blogging!! WHAT are widgets? What are tags? Where on the dashboard do I find them or an explanation of how I can get them to work for me? In other aspects of my life I am fairly sharp. I could certainly be advisor to Hercule Poirot in unraveling his most impenetrable of cases. So - why oh why can I not figure out how to manage this bloomin' blog???????

    It sounds wonderful! V impressed that they didn’t have to spend the time cleaning, painting and furnishing- the financial sector does things differently 🙂 I suppose you’ll be over every few weeks?

    Well they were supposed to be going to do some painting, but in the end it was decided that they wouldn’t manage it – the ceilings were far too high and no ladder was available. So – the logical solution? Posters!!! I suspect. however, that there may be a couple of trips planned before the summer is out!!! Well – at least they’ve been basking in wonderful weather so a summer over there may actually look like summertime!

    So jealous of this cosmopolitan life in London. Was the coat Desigual?

    • xtrekki says:

      Camden, I think (almost, but not quite so exclusive) . Desigual sourced in the mega shopping centre close by the new home, but – you weren’t there to encourage that purchase!!

Looking forward to hearing from you...often!
