Where did that week go - part 2...

.... we went into London for the Ideal Home show - lots of people, lots of things to see - here's a few of my favourites... I tried to upload these photos on Twitter on the day but my phone and the wifi coverage at Earls Court was a bit rubbish (but not as rubbish as the cost of food at the show - £21 bought us 2 alcoholic drinks, 2 portions of chips and 2 sausages!! oh my word...note to self - take own food!)
But it was still a good day :o)
I love these SMEG appliances - dinky little under the counter ones - behind those doors is a washing machine, and dishwasher and something else (I only opened 2 of them!) lol
I'd love a tall big blue fridge - gorgeously retro! - I'm not sure it would go with our new kitchen but it would look great with the retro china I bought last year:
I worked in London for years and I think after a while its easy to take the City for granted and not look around - the London Underground is full of great features... like the architecture (this is the dis-used platform at Earls Court)
but the feature that made me smile was the logo on the side of the underground trains - I don't know whether they were supposed to be cracked like this or they were printed like that for a reason but either way - great distress! :o)  (apologies for the photography - I had to photograph it quickly - it was rush hour and commuters were rushing by!)
That's a few snapshots of the day - was good fun - I forget how much I love London & I love living so close to it.
