Back from my entirely too short vacation.

And it was too damn short.

But! There was good eating and good shopping to be had.

Syl and I had two excellent afternoon teas. Once was at the lovely Great Room at the Grosvenor House Hotel and the other was at Liberty. Scones and clotted cream are wonderful things. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

Also, we had the world’s best brownie…and I do mean the best in the entire world, as I know it. Borough Market, the Flour Power stall. Go get some now.

We went to my favorite Vietnamese place and had the spring rolls and sweet & sour prawns. Deliciousness.

We also found the best Starbucks on two continents. On a little side street from the Liverpool Street tube stop there was a delightfully empty S’bux that whipped up the best coffees ever.

Let us not forget the shopping. Oh the shopping

We got matching grey suede boots that actually FIT over our calves. And! They’re pull on, not zip up!

I got a beautiful cream wool, basket woven winter coat, a skirt, two tees, two satin tops and a pair of jeans.

I am thinking of going back in November to see Paul Weller @ Brixton Academy. And to shop more. 

But I must get furniture first. That is unavoidable.
