i went to london

last week i jumped on a train and sped south to stinky London town, calling it stinky is my way of saying i no longer find that place as wondrous as i once did, bad memories etc, have tainted the big city for me but for a few days i can cope with it... and its always nice to see friends and to get a taste of things i just cant get up here in the wilderness of west cumbria, don't get me wrong i totally love being up here but it is lacking in many things that most big cities offer... anyway here's a few snaps i took..these are my dresses hanging on a rail in carry me home, my main London stockist
this is a corner of carry me home that caught my eye, i love these stacking blocks and the blackboard is always so fun,
this next picture is two contrasts to the big city, the image on the left is inside leadenhall market in the city and its a beautiful place to have a little wander and grab some food, and the image on the right is what will soon be Europe's tallest building, the shard, and its just gigantic and i have enjoyed watching it slowly rise from a huge hole in the ground.. i know there are many bigger buildings in the world but this is still quite breathtaking to see up close..
and finally what i bought, i had a Christmas gift voucher to spend so i ran off to John Lewis as soon as i got to London and grabbed this Rob Ryan vase, i love it, its so very me, and the fabric on the right i got from liberty, i really think i am addicted as i so don't need any more fabric in my life, but before i knew it i was walking out with half a meter of each...
 so London was ok, but I'm glad i don't live there anymore, a happy tourist yes, and happy I'm no longer a frustrated resident.
