Cor blimey it was a bit nippy on my bike this morning. At the moment I'm on my old faithful the blue bike, which I wrote about in my very first blog back in November 2008. I still go to the Anchor and Hope most weeks to catch up with my brother.

Anyway, lots of fun and games this week.... we had a great night out out favorite, Ottolenghi, in Upper Street. Lovely because we all shared everything, and we over-ordered so there was no panic eating. My fave? The beef and the aubergines.

Delicious wines, a Pinot Noir, then Verdicchio, then a Gewurztraminer, then a desert wine while we passed round every different pud. That was me done (cycling back) but the energetic ones went on to a bar or two.

Yesterday I did a little reccie checking out shops in town. I started out checking out the new 18 carat Goldcrest collection in Liberty...

I need to finalize the designs for our new shop. Had a nice chat with lovely Laura Lee and she gave me lots of tips. Then rushed off to meet the builders on site. Some problems with locks etc. Building work should start in a week or so! Very exciting. Here's a pic of the architect's model...

Quick lunch at El Vergel then back to change for a press reception at Fortnum and Mason's. Nice to see Pieter from St Erasmus in town with Anna from blog Miss Eco Glam (and she is pretty glam too!)
