Sorry for the delay dear readers. I don't know where this week is going!!
Unfortunately, there was no lay in for me over last weekend. Not a chance. And I am still suffering for it. Big time. I had a jam packed weekend - and the result is that I feel like a zombie. My nails are painted, the lipstick is on, but no body is home. I fiercely want to be asleep.
But - this is all because I had a super busy weekend. So this might be a "grab a cup of tea and a sticky bun" kind of post. It would seem that maybe I should not have ruled No More Ice Cream as soon as I did. The weather this weekend, for the most part was unseasonably, but more than welcomely, glorious! And I spent it bargain hunting at Camden market on Saturday, catching up with a DVD series, which kept me up until 2am - and then up and out by 9.30am (!!!!) to the Stitching and Knitting Show at Alexander Palace on Sunday. I am now a poor, tired church mouse. *sigh*
On Saturday I headed off in good time to meet my chum at Liverpool Street - only to be scuppered and delayed bt an hour due to a station evacuation and long delays (so the hand scrawled note on the white boards told me - get a dotmatrix board Mr Tube - this is the 21st century!) I emerged a stressed, hot, grumpy moo. Until I saw this.....
A memorial to the children of the Kinder-Transport which enabled approximately 10,000 Jewish children to escape Nazi Germany during the 1930's. Many of them arrived at Liverpool Street station and were then placed in British foster homes.
After a calming down and cooling off period, I headed off to SpitalFields market. I had money to burn and I was ready to strike the match! I could not wait!! I was so excited!!
It was shut. Yes, shut. Closed. Unopen. On a Saturday?! Nothing was mentioned on the website - and no one seemed to know why. Disappointed did not cover it. So we settled on a butchers around a local vintage/retro shop - Absolute Vintage.
