See You On Monday!

Well this is it, I’m off to London and I won’t return until May 21st though I’ll still post from time to time and I have two guest posts for you while I’m away so next week decor8 will be on schedule with daily goodies, though a bit light because I have much to do while I’m away.

The London Cushion

I have my house sitter here all ready to sit (ha ha), my bags packed, camera batteries charged, iPod Touch prepared to do some tweeting, and well… so long to you and have a really nice weekend! Tomorrow (Friday) will be quiet here (you may hear crickets if you visit, or perhaps frogs in a faraway pond) but please visit again on Monday for the usual fare. See you soon!

    Hey, it looks like am late in replying to your post about places to visit in London. Sorry, work has been a bit hectic recently. Anyway as a Londoner myself currently living in Venice (…and feeling very homesick), I must give you one important advice. In whichever area you go to, find a good traditional British pub and try “bangers and mash with gravy”. Then the next day have some shepherds pie, the day after, some fish and chips.

    Let me know how it goes, have a safe trip and enjoy London!

    Have a great trip, Holly! The weather here has been inconsistent of late, so I hope you’ve remembered to pack some warm layers and an umbrella, as well as a pretty summer dress.

    PS. I’ll be watching for you!

    If you’re homesick you should check out the new Anthropologie on Kings Road in the old Antiquarius building – gorgeous! I’ve yet to visit ‘Very Sanderson’ at the Fashion & Textile Museum but hear it’s great, and you’ve got two days left to see the Ofili show at Tate Britain which is fab. Have fun!
