London: Part One

I'm Back!
Back to my hubby, children, horrendus jet lag and my little neglected blog.
My Dad is much better and up and running on his own.
I am so grateful I was able to spend that time with him.
My sister and nieces got a big look in too. 
I miss them all.

 Victoria & Albert Museum

The Cafe and Main Entrance

Alexander McQueen from Summer 2010 collection

Catherine Walker RIP
Lady Di's 'Elvis' Dress
and beautiful evening gown

My niece (Miss M) had an inset (pupil free) day last Friday.  She is also my godchild and we had an absolutely fabulous day out together.  First stop the V&A.  Miss M is choosing her subjects for GCSE's this year.   Being interested in Design and Textiles, The Fashion Gallery was the perfect exhibit.  This has always been a favourite for me.  More of the day in later posts.

Good to be back
Have a great weekend!
