How could we go to London and not stop by the infamous, extravaganza that is Harrods!!?:) Oh My Goodness, this has got to be the most amazing, exciting ....and most expensive department store that I have ever been in and one that I most definitely will never be able to do my weekly 'shop' in ..hahaha ... I can't actually claim that I did any shopping as such ...more like eye bulging, gob-smacking, drooling! There was even a doorman to hold the door for you as you went in! (And a security man to keep his beady eyes on you too ;) ..hehe!)
Everywhere was so decadent and majestic ... we loved the Egyptian staircase and galleries ...really beautiful and very OTT! :)
We peaked inside the ladies department ...but I knew their 'bargains' would cost me my house mortgage ...hahaha ...and they only had one of each dress out on display ...these dresses were au couture and made to measure! Veeeerry posh! And my figure would certainly not measure up ..hehehe
Can you guess where I did most of my drooling??? :) Definitely the food hall ... Cakes to die for ... that cost a small fortune ...hubby and I had a little treat ...2 strawberry mini trifles at £4:95 ..each!!!! and gone in 3 spoonfuls ....but very yummilicious!
The chocolate department smelt just like heaven :) I could have died quite happily in there ..hehehe Again (remembering that we are 'tight-fisted-with-our-pennies-Northerners!) we did buy a very. very small box of chocolate's ..the cheapest ones ..hahaha .. £15:00 !! for 10 small chocolate truffles ...gone in a blink ..hahaha I saw some boxes ...that I most definitely could not persuade hubby to buy ...for in excess of 5 and 6 Hundred Pounds!!!! Be still my beating heart! Poor hubby would have had palpitations and a very probable heart attack paying that much for chocolate .... and I would probably still have preferred a Cadbury's dairy milk bar ...commoner that I am ..hahaha :)
We had a wonderful, frantic, whirlwind time in London, I can't honestly say I loved it ....looking at this sign still gives me the Heebie Jeebbies ....I really didn't like the underground...
But I have made some wonderful memories with hubby,
I can share one last photo ...
the train journey's did give me some happy, quiet, sewing time and I finished 'Autumn on Marigold Lane' ...I love this piece and can't wait to frame it :)
Sooooooo for my next adventure ..... ???? ... I'm going to go shower two giggling Angels and hope for an early bedtime so I can rest my weary body ...hahaha :)
