21 Mar London’s Calling
As you can imagine, it was hard to say goodbye to the sunshine, however, London was calling, and thankfully the weather reports from home were not too bad. I had every intention of sleeping on the plane but ended up watching movies, The Big Short, Burnt and Our Brand is Crisis, which resonated hugely after six weeks in the USA. I must say I am utterly Trumped out.
In fact I felt quite starved of culture if I am honest. Although I have been spoilt by the live music scene I was thrilled to see there was some exhibitions on of interest.
Having caught up with everything and with clients, I was thrilled to see how a design had come out for one of my Ladies, thrilled with the result, she said she wants one in every colour.
Processing all the orders from the trip and feeling like I am finally up to date, so I decided to say hello to my home city. Although I am missing the huge cycle paths, I decided just to walk…
First to the Courtauld, with its stunning staircase, door knockers and opulent ceilings.
One of the finest collection albeit small. The painting of Adam & Eve held here is as old as Hampton Court and Machu Picchu at over 500 years.
With Botticelli on display, Dantes Inferno all rather dark, but fascinating none the less, then across over passed the Wren Church, where the Magnolias are a blooming. London is bustling, and brimming with tourists.
Up to Covent Garden to listen to the Opera singers..
Conde Nastes archive are brought together brilliantly to showcase the remarkable range of photography since its launch in 1916.
It takes me to go away to remind myslef just how incredible London is. Overflowing with history and wonder.
The sun came out, and I have to say its quite nice to be home. For now…..
