So many things going on around here. And so little time.

I leave for London in less than a week. tomorrow! (I started writing this post a week ago..)
And yes, it’s COLD over there so it’s back to winter clothes. Of course, that means I need to think about foot wear. Boots. Oh no…thought I was finished with them for the season! I think low black booties will do: no need for the tall leather. Anyway, there is only so much room in a suitcase!

And then we have the on-going shoe debate. I am not comfortable in anything that laces; I need slip ons. That is why, of course, summer is SO much easier!

Anyway, here are my new shoes. After ordering two pairs of Geox (pricey..) and testing them out in the house for a few hours I decided they just were not right. They also did not come in half sizes, so I ordered down and they were a tad too tight. So off to DSW last Saturday where I found several great alternatives and ended up with these from Dr. Scholl’s.

I  tested them for hours, and days, around the house and finally wore them outside. Yes, they will do. More than do: they are perfect.

There are several highlights for this trip, but surely one will be going to the V&A Museum to see the Winnie-the-Pooh Exhibit. Just cannot wait!


I also hope to get to the
Garden Museum
It was closed last summer, for renovation, and is now open. So many wonderful programs, so take a look at their site. Even the cafe gets rave reviews.

And there are meet ups with friends from my
Makelight group. Emily Quinton is one fantastic woman who “teaches” this very unique course. I was fortunate enough to go to her house last summer and am so looking forward to the luncheon and photo walk this coming week.

Then a ladies lunch with a very good friend I stayed with a few years ago, and her daughter, and my daughter; I will be sure to post pictures.


Lovely Cadogan Place: it won’t be this green next week but still a favorite walk.

It’s a short visit, unfortunately, but at least the snow and cold is over. If you want to follow along in my travels, click on the Instagram feed over on the right sidebar here in the blog.
