So yesterday we had a ‘grown up’ day and went to London, mainly so we could go and see the Foo Fighters at Wembley Stadium (which was a great concert btw).
Here’s a shot of the stadium it was packed.
We were staying in Marylebone which turned out to have a Cath Kidston which had some really lovely girls working in there, very helpful and kind. We walked past Jane Packer’s uber Florist shop which I just loved, here’s an example of her work:
Emma Bridgewater’s shop I was really looking forward to as I’d not been before, but the staff were very unfriendly and standoffish, so I think I’ll carry on going to John Lewis for bits and bobs from there.
Little White Company was just gorgeous and I bought Miss L a really beautifully embroidered linen nighty, which was a bit hit when I got home.
The hotel was Jury’s which was very boutique but the room was really plush, with excellent staff and centrally located and it wasn’t terribly expensive for a Central London hotel, I’d certainly recommend it and we’ll be going back again.
But we got into London at midday and we couldn’t check in until 2.30pm, so I dragged my long suffering lovely husband to see Sex in the City movie. Bless him he really is a saint, Cath Kidston and Sex in the City in one weekend – what a man!!
Now I loved Sex in the City when it was on, I just adored it and I’ve been missing the girls. But I’d not really seen much about the movie as I’ve been busy with sorting out the website. My best friend in the US had e-mailed me after she’d seen it just saying ‘ I miss you!!’ and now I know why.
It was PERFECT! I laughed, I cried (a lot!) and it’s stayed with me I really want to see it again and that’s the sign of a good film for me. If I can go through the endless nightmare that it is for us to get a babysitter so I can go and see a film I’ve already seen, then I know it’s good 🙂
Here are my thoughts (*****SPOILERS******)
