I have had a lovely week off work even if the first part was mainly spent catching up on housework. There are some jobs that just couldn't be ignored any longer such as cleaning all the crockery on display in the kitchen that seems to attract grease and dirt. I find it strangely relaxing doing housework if I am in the right mood, there is something nice about doing something that doesn't take much thinking about.
Later in the week it was my lovely girl's 16th birthday and we had a bit of a family party catching up with relatives we rarely see.
Then it was off to London for a birthday treat. My lovely girl loves London and we decided to treat ourselves to a night away. We went to see Wicked which was absolutely Wicked ! I would highly recommend it, I have seen a few musicals in the West End and I really enjoyed this one.
I managed to squeeze in a visit to Liberty. The poster is advertising their new budget range for Target which is definitely worth checking out on their website if you can't get to the shop.
This was quite a bizarre window display in Harrods. The red haired lady is lying down in her retro apron looking up at red roses suspended from the ceiling.
We finished our trip basking in the sun and enjoying a drink on the banks of the Thames at Richmond.
I didn't come home empty handed, I found the Cath Kidston skirt in a charity shop in Kensington, more expensive than I would pay in my local charity shop but still a bargain.
And this is a gorgeous piece of Liberty fabric. I was immediately drawn to the design and colour but have no idea yet what I going to make with it.
