London

London, you were such a treat! I feel refreshed and kind of back on track again. I even managed to sleep without neither wine nor a sleeping pill! 😉IMG_8185

In addition to never packing what I need, this time I forgot both my toothbrush, my antidepressants and my comb! Haha! And the only pair of boots I took with me were slightly high-heeled, but hey, I was a big city girl for a weekend! 😉 IMG_8191

Didn´t do that much, had a nice walk in Richmond with Lavinia, bought a couple of nice things for myself and my niece, had mulled wine, ate out in West Hampstead and gossiped to our hearts´content. IMG_8183IMG_8189

The pubs are so nicely decorated and they get you in an instant jolly mood. And the mulled wine helps drive the dark thoughts away! 😉IMG_8200

Pretzels, oh so good!IMG_8217

My dear Camelia was good, too, I forgot to take the camera with me and capture her spirit when we met. She was as radiant as when we first met, at 19. Some people don´t fade with age. 😉IMG_8242

Yesterday I spent the day in the Balham/Clapham area, so charming! We had coffee in this cute little place called Milk, apparently the next big thing. 😉IMG_8243

Breakfast was English muffin and crumpets, I needed a translation in order to know what to order, so many new words and ingredients.IMG_8251

Poor cutie, waiting for his owner. IMG_8323

Antique shops, I wanted the dogs so bad, but couldn´t fit them in my luggage. Seems I might need to go back and fetch them later on.IMG_8324
