If it's Thursday, it must be Shopping Day!

The Princess has to have a shopping day in London. Must have, for her sanity after a load of museums. The last two times we went, we had to travel to Highbury in North London to visit the charming and beautiful Sylvanian Families shop. Alas, my daughter's days as a toy-playing child are behind her so this year was a rather more prosaic planned excursion to Lush, Claire's and Superdrug. When we shop, we shop in style!
Alas, my money had deserted me in droves the day before, so my cash was spent on a rather tasty cake and cocoa on the Portobello Road, a Duck Banquet on Gerard Street and mid afternoon drinks as we met the gang in Covent Garden. I'll let the pictures do the talking again.

  1. I hate shopping for myself but I love girly days with Eleanor when we hit the shops. It looks like you had a great day. What did the boys get up to whilst you were shopping?

    1. They went back to the Science Museum again.... but not on Fly 360, because apparently His two best/worst pilots weren't there and the other two were too chicken!

    1. We LOVED it; as a holiday it has something for everyone, except perhaps a lot of restful stops. And I do end up feeling like I need a holiday to recover!!!

  3. Oh, you made me very homesick! Looks like you all had a great time! It's frightening, honestly, just how quickly their toy-playing days fly by....

  5. I do quite a lot of shopping with my daughter now and mostly enjoy it though not if it's Topshop which usually plays thumpy music I object too. I too feel nostalgic for the Sylvanian Families days - all gone via ebay now. Your trip to London sounds great, especially the Harry Potter studios.

  6. Ah - looks like you've had a great week. I've really enjoyed reading your London posts - only wish you'd let me know you were coming and we could have met up. Next time perhaps? All the best, Judy.

  7. I didn't realise that there's a Paddington statue at the station... I will definitely have to look out for it the next time we travel to London. Jx
