After four days of non stop unpacking we have finally finished! we are in our new home and it's lovely, there is still lots to be done but for the moment we can sit back and relax and get to know everything. The dogs and cat are home too, it is so lovely to have them back after two months away. They are still quite unsure about everything after two days and Ling Ling (the cat) spends her days meowing through the house, hopefully they will all settle down soon. This is a picture of my garden shed in the corner, the garden is really lovely, pocket handkerchief sized and predominantly white which I love, I will show more pictures over the next few days.
After nearly eight weeks in the rented flat we get the keys to our home tomorrow and move on Thursday! It's very exciting but it means more packing and unpacking but hopefully this will be our final move....I always say that but we have moved every three years for the last nine years so who knows. Apologies for not commenting on your blogs but I am down to about five minutes internet a day but hopefully that will all change by the end of the week in our new house.
I love black and white in the summer, they always seem such perfect colours for this time of year, clean and bold and uncluttered. They look great together in clothes or on a sofa, as a colour scheme for a room or just as a table setting. What are your favourite summer colours?
We went to Borough Market this morning. I have been dying to go there for ages having read so much about it - Jamie Oliver and various other chefs always talk about it and it really is the most fantastic place to visit, so vibrant and full of colour, wonderful food, great atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it if you are visiting London.
I just spent a couple of days in Milan, it was lovely sightseeing and walking around everywhere. The Duomo looked particularly beautiful. It was so full of tourists that I didn't venture inside.
Everywhere you could buy slices of coconut like these ones, and of course the wonderful gelato too.
