Proper waves!

Very occasionally you get a proper stormy sea on the East Coast...

I went somewhere...

I left the joys of Laurencekirk behind last week to head to London with two aims in mind!  One was to visit Ally Pally and the ace Knitting and Stitching Show - and to try and not overspend at it.  The second was to see how far I could get down the route of finding frocks/finalising ideas on what my bridesmaids would be happy to wear.

I ended up buying a bit more than I intended to at Ally Pally but that was Habu's fault! Then I needed to get fibre for spinning since that's the newest hobby...really must put the spinning wheel together!

The rest of the London trip involved a lot of walking around, exploring vintage shops and the vintage fair at Hammersmith, visiting the Plinth to see what the latest individual was up to, a detour to the V&A and general catching up.  Plus there seemed to be an awful lot of looking in the windows of cake shops!

I'm off...!

Tomorrow that is.  Today I must get a few last minute things to take down the road (Stornoway black pudding, rowies for Pauline), do my packing, tidy up the kitchen, iron a mountain of clothes, try and unpack some boxes and get finances ready to sort out when I get back!


Think I'm ready for lots of vintage shopping, Ally Pally, Japanese food and The Plinth!  And not forgetting some Krispy Kremes...
