A girls-only day trip to London this past Wednesday meant that my daughter and I could indulge in all the things we love and please only ourselves.
After catching the train from Wakefield we arrived at Bucks Palace for our 11.15 time slot. A tour of the palace, including taking in the display of the painstakingly embroidered coronation robes, started our day off on a high note.
Lunch in the park allowed us to rest briefly before hot footing it down to Regent Street.
Here we ventured into Hamley’s;a first for us both where Freya decreed that it was indeed the best top shop in the whole world, especially after viewing the Harry Potter display and the Royals built in Lego.
Next, after being dragged through Hollister, we arrived at the famous Liberty.
Like a kid in a sweet shop I took in the fabric display. Half a metre of Tana Lawn was purchased, Petal and Bud A, something I had promised myself when the trip was planned.
A street performance and dinner at Covent Garden completed our lovely day before a snooze on the trip back home.
I waved my daughter goodbye today for a week in North Wales with my parents. I busied myself with taking a piece of my fabric and turning it into a long needed needle case. It will remind me of a lovely day.
Love, Lucie xx
