Busy! Singapore now London then off to France. Thought the best way to show you gezzers the sights would be to highlight some of the highlights (such a way with words - holidays got to my brain already).
|The mighty Harrods|
I took the girls (daughters x2) to Harrods. Jeff was off seeing bands and doing his music thang and I was in-charge of said daughters. The plan was the Natural History Museum then Princess Di's memorial in Hyde Park.
Let's just say we got side tracked.
New plan: The museum of shopping aka Harrods. It's called working with what we got. What we had was a shizen rainy day in London. Best stay in indoors I believe. So we did.
It was special. I got to teach the girls about shoes, fashion, handbags and design. After that I caved and we did the toy floor which was not so bad. We also spent some time watching posh poodles get preened at the Doggie Spa.

Anyways, I digress. What I saw of some significance was a designer called Mauro Perucchetti at the Halcyon Gallery in Harrods.

His work has been decribed as mixing pop asthetics with social comment. Whatevs, I was attracted to the colours and the bling. His artworks are enticing, extravagant and colourful. It was a Swarovski-a-thon. Just perfect for a viewing and an oogling.
I'm typing this now in Paris... more on that another time.
