We launched the new Susan Spindler Designs website this past month, and I hope you enjoy it and will check in often.
I am in London, UK for the next month visiting my daughter and her husband as we await the arrival of their first born … a son. Will keep you posted on his arrival!
While in London I have been enjoying the bustling scene here. My family lives in Notting Hill, so you are minutes from everything, which is wonderful — the shopping, museums (many free), architecture and people watching while sitting at a cafe is wonderful and relaxing. London has a population of 10 million people, but everything goes in an orderly fashion and buses and trains are usually on time and there are a zillion cabs to hail at a moment notice.
Yesterday we visited Harrods and its amazing food halls, including the amazing macaroons from Laduree. Earlier in the day we went to a spa called Zen, my daughter was getting a massage, and while I was waiting for her a Chinese woman who works there started speaking with me. To be polite I was nodding my head and all I could understand was consultation. So said yes and then the next thing I know I am on a table having acupuncture being done. While it was relaxing, I wasn’t clear on what we were curing but it made for a great laugh, especially for Allyson my daughter!
I’ve included some photos of some of the sites so far — I have especially enjoyed the flower markets and the gorgeous gardens.
