What I Have Been Doing

The past few days have certainly been a whirlwind! Thursday saw a meet-up with fellow blogger, CouldaWouldaShoulda (sorry,too hard to links) and a trip to the Royal Academy. We had a nice wander along Regents Street
and then a peek into the Ham Yard Hotel which is fabulous.
Some wonderful friends, who have just returned from two years in New York invited me for a lovely Thanksgiving dinner which made me very happy.

The next morning, I was off to Oxford to meet my cousins and have a tour of some of the colleges.

When I got back to London, I had a chance to meander along Oxford Street where Black Friday was in full swing.

Saturday was low key, just hanging on the boat where I had been staying and watching the world go by.

In the afternoon, I made my way to Alfie's Antique Market to meet up with my dear friend, The House of Beauty & Culture for a late and raucous lunch.

Happy to say he is well and hopes to get back to blogging!

Sunday was off to Wales to meet up with Dianne from Yonks and attend a country auction. I sat on my hands most of the time, but still managed to win one or two lots!

More later! I have taken tons of pictures and will take loads more, I am sure!
