where my thought's escaping....

Just a few photographs I took on two very hot days in London, Sunday and Monday of this week.Grumpy Old Women takes the West End Stage at the Novello. How great it would been to have seen this production... it's something I can relate to!
Primrose Bakery, reminded me of 'Happy Days'.


those chairs...

Just a few pics of Harrods. A rare true blue sky that stayed with us for the whole day!!!

Food Halls...

Wonderful couple of days but always lovely to come home.

Thanks for stopping by. x

Hi Viv..thanks for the London pics,and the Harrods bought back memories when I visited there with a friend we bought an ice cream but we had to go outside to eat it lol(commoners!)but it was devine,I bought all my grandchildren a pack of Dolly lollies and was so impressed that I had a Harrods bag to carry and bring home.Also just wanted to go into that cafe and have a cuppa.Have a lovely day hope it is cooler for you after a scorching summer here in Australia we are enjoying the Colder weather.Carole

years since I worked in London and I had almost forgotton how diverse it is ... Harrods brought memories of my first grown up perfume purchased there and your pics made it look like it had been opened exclusively to you! not a soul in sight. Wish I could have tagged along. yaps

I loved the small tour of London Viv, I haven't been there for years and am looking forward to my visit in September.

Love the "Happy Days" bakery. It did look like that.

Love,

'Grumpy Old Women' something you can relate to Viv? No, I don't think so. Nice pics from your London break. x

HI Viv, We had use of a flat in Londonfor 4 nights last weekend but had to cancel! I wanted to do Liberty & Anthropologie as I never have, but I have seen the Harrods food hall, what a beautiful place it is, I especially loves the fish part with the tiles and mermaids (if I remember correctly). I am glad that someone had a lovely weekend in the city,

I lived in London for six years in my late teens, early twenties - Harrods I miss you. I can remember taking my sister and neice there when my neice was just out of nappies. We were on our way to the ladies when my neice insisted she had to go 'right now', so there we were with her on a potty in the corridor outside the loos. Hmmm, happy days!

Paula said...

Hi sweet Viv,
Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful photos!!! My son would LOVE the bakery! He dreams of going to England and France, visiting all the places he has read in history books and eating all of the good food! LOL! The buildings are gorgeous! Have a lovely day! Love, Paula

How far from London do you live Viv?
Maybe we could meet there one day and sit on the awesome yellow chairs and have a nice chat!

A few years ago I was buying a hard-to-find Christmas present in Harrods' toy department. The cashier had disappeared to sort out a query from the customer in front of me in the queue. She was gone soooooo long that I began to lose patience. Turning my grumpy face to look behind to see if there was any sign of her, I came face to face with Paul McCartney standing behind me in the queue. I mean, what a time to have my grumpy face on! Paul McCartney! I blushed deeeep red and turned away. I couldn't get away quick enough! xx

London is a wonderful place to visit and then go back home again. I wouldn't want to live there but popping in and out is great. Love the bakery.
