My Material Life

Lively London

What can I say about London? I just wish I could spend more time there! Two must-sees for me were Liberty of London (photo below, teacups) and The Victoria & Albert Museum, and I’m so glad I got to spend a little time at each of them. So many other places I wanted to see (like The Conran Shop; so sorry Sir Terence!) will just have to wait until next time. I did sneak in a visit to The Fashion and Textile Museum as it is located on the street where we stayed. And after a day covering an incredible amount of ground by boat, foot (through both Hyde and Kensington Parks!), underground train, above ground train and taxi, I finally had a proper tea at The Orangery at Kensington Palace. That was all followed by a ride on the spectacular London Eye. No complaints.

The next three shots show the street where we stayed (Bermondsey) and a view of our bedroom and back deck. A really nice flat which you can learn more about here. The only drawback for me was the noise from the street at night – that’s city life I guess!
