Thinking about all the delicious fruit yesterday revived sense memories of my recent trip to London.
If you only had to go to one shop - and didn't need to buy anything, I would recommend Liberty's. It's visual heaven, verging on too much.
I worked there one summer many moons ago before they had crystal threads hanging down all over the place.
Since I'm a very greedy person, I decided to have tea. The tea shop red and warm. Such cakes!
And scones with clotted cream and raspberry jam. Hot chocolate too.
I consumed a zillion calories and it was bliss.
For shoe fetishists who are also chocoholics, this is obviously the place to go.
Luckily, I am neither.
Upstairs there were lots of cushions with peacocks on. I would have liked to buy all of them to send to Maryam. Except the price would have matched the current bank bailout.
