So having dropped them off, we were on the train to London at 10am and just after 11 hubby was installed in a man-seat whilst I was
I was very restrained...
We then went to the V&A, nipped round the Club to Catwalk exhibition, and had a spot of lunch. Then there was the shop; I love that shop!
I bought a full meter of the fabric that got me into this here game of quilting and hoarding in the first place!
When we last/first went away for the night sans kids, on my 40th birthday, I went round the Quilts at the V&A exhibition, and have never looked back. I bought my first few FQs there and then, and have not been able to bring myself to use them; so when I saw the meter cut, it was in my basket quick as.
A little washi tape and a re-cycled bracelet had to come home too; they matched, what else could I do?
We spent the rest of the afternoon wandering the shops, trying to avoid American Football fans who had taken over Regent's Street, and not buying anything in Liberty!
After an early evening meal, we went to see The Book of Mormon. Follow the link if you want to know more, but honestly, it will not be to a lot of peoples' taste; although Prince Harry went to see it last night, so it can't be as rude, crude, blasphemous and shocking as some may think, eh? I thought it was fantastic, and a have a frog to prove it!
After a night in the fancy Radisson Edwardian Hampshire, we strolled around town, there was more shopping, and this winter I will be sporting these...
But most excitedly, I will be wearing this little beauty...
I have been holding out for the real thing for so long, and thanks to my wonderful husband I now have one. I am a very happy lady!
All too soon it was back to reality though, home with the kids, school bags and lunch boxes; but you know I wouldn't have it any other way.
