A Great Weekend.

The weekend flew by but we all had a lovely time.  Eldest and Treacle were tucked up at home for the weekend and Treacle loved every minute of having Eldest to herself.  We had a lovely time in London with visits and shopping and to see the show on Saturday evening.  Here are some pictures of the weekend.

DH and I caught the train early on Friday morning and once we had left our bags at the hotel went for lunch at Fortnum & Masons in The Gallery.

It wasn’t too busy when we got there but soon filled up.

The Gallery over looks the sales floor.

Hundreds of years ago Tea was a very expensive commodity and it was almost a thing to be displayed such as this tea house in Fortnums.

Tea was also kept in locked caddies such as these as it was so expensive.

From the first floor looking down to the lower ground floor and this spectacular spiral staircase in the centre of the store.

Youngest and Girlfriend arrived in the evening and we had dinner in our room.

Pictures of our room.

We had evening drinks in the lounge before Youngest and Girlfriend arrived.  It is very cosy with the fire especially as it was very cold and frosty on Friday evening which made a change after all the rain again.

I will show you more pictures tomorrow.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Hugs, Susie xx

    What a lovely weekend and such a treat! Dessert looks so yummy and mom loves the silver tea strainers. She has always wanted an antique tea caddy in the shape of an apple but they’re beyond her price range. We can’t wait to see more pictures!

    How posh to have lunch at The Gallery at Fortnum & Masons!! I want to put my feet on the cushion by the fire – they are always cold! I’m glad you had a lovely weekend and I’m looking forward to the pictures. I have been busy sewing and it feels so good!
