Last night out in London




 We had two nights and 1 day only back in London - had a good train trip back but it was pretty stormy on the coast. When we got to London we made a mad dash from train to hotel to a restaurant out somewhere in East London in what we would call the badlands - lovely people - innovative food etc - I forgot my phone for any photos. On our one day off we made our adventure out to get the chiffon scarves - this is our annual event - and then we stayed on the Jubilee line to Canary Wharf where we stopped for a look around and some lunch. Then for our last night we went to a fabulous restaurant called RotiChai -in the West End - with Annette and Terry - we started out with Hungarian wine - very nice it was too


This was our entree - all the food was fabulous - very tasty and quite avant guard.

chick peas in the front - my memory serves me badly

Prawn Curry - this was our only non fish night although the prawns cropped up


Duck I think - anyway it was wonderful and if you are in London I would recommend it - upstairs is the Street Kitchen - more casual (not that this wasn't) and different. If it is still there when we go next year we will be there for sure. how did we find it? Well it was in The West Australian newspaper  which I read before we went away. The manager of the restaurant was quite impressed.


Back home we have as good as caught up on all the orders - I have stocktaken a few goodies with more to go but everything getting under control. Our return stuff arrived back save and sound - we did sell a lot of beautiful goodies - the silk laps were a real treat and we brought only 1 home. I didn't find much new but I did bring back not that many cricula cocoons which are on the web and selling fast already. I have been chasing these for quite some time. Gorgeous little things they are.


This week I have not done a great deal of anything overly creative apart from stitching this and cutting it up


and then knitting it - more activity to come. But if you want to know what I am doing, you will need to subscribe to the e-mag or if you do subscribe - wait for Issue 3!  Right now Ian is getting the newsletter done and then I expect we will be as busy as. But taking time out to watch the All Blacks play in Japan tomorrow for sure. And hopefully on Monday my new toy will arrive - my thermofax machine.

I can't remember the last time I had a night out in London. Probably before Nelson got on his column!! I daresay you know the city better than I do. Glad you had such a good time. Love the stitchy knitty piece and those cocoons. I'm looking forward to e3.
