As we come full circle

As we come full circle

Well, hello. It’s been quite a while since I was here last–about 15 months, actually. That break was a bit longer than I had intended… oops! One of the hardest things about getting back to blogging after such a long hiatus is, of course, there is so much to catch up on. But never mind, […]

Mannequins in Camden Town (London)

Mannequins in Camden Town (London)

We took a quick trip into Camden Town after the Peter White concert last Sunday. What a fascinating place! Roxi and I could spend hours and hours there. We definitely want to go back and have a girl day (shopping and lunch). This photo from my Wordless Wednesday post this week was taken in the Camden food […]

St Mary’s Church in Guildford, England

I was in Guildford over the weekend (hello shopping, LOL!) and came across this old church: St. Mary’s, the oldest church and oldest building in town. The tower is from Saxon times (about 1050). Here’s a little more information if you’re interested. Also, if you’re a fan of Lewis Carroll (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland), you’ll […]

Out and about in London

Out and about in London

Roxi has had quite a number of get togethers with friends in town lately. The latest one was on Sunday, a meeting in Soho with a friend from her old school here in England. While they went their way for a couple of hours, I made my way into Chinatown, a place I’ve not spent […]

V&A museum and unpacking update

This amazing chandelier is a glass sculpture by Dale Chihuly. Last week, I spent a day at the Victoria and Albert Museum. I specifically went to look at the fashion and costume exhibits because Roxi and I are really into sewing right now. Well, gathering ideas for sewing anyway ;-) While I was there, I had […]

At the Tate Modern

At the Tate Modern

Sometimes I feel like this: Venus of the Rags by Michelangelo Pistoletto. Edited to add: I forgot to mention that I saw this interesting exhibit–Exposed: Voyeurism, Surveillance and the Camera.

The water levels were a little low, and the grass was looking a bit brown. There was a horse thing going on. The Savill Garden building, looking really different in the full sun. White Bordeaux, salami and prosciutto, brie, sharp English Cheddar, lemon and cilantro hummus, olives with feta, cheese bread, salt and pepper crisps, M&Ms, chocolate […]

Saturday in London

Saturday in London

There was a delicious, cool breeze over the Thames as we crossed the Jubilee Bridge. These helped cool us off too. Mr. DJ and Roxi had Cookies and Cream and Coffee. I had Mango. For books, we went to Foyles and Blackwells on Charing Cross. We also went to Denmark Street to check out music […]
