We have a visitor--my sister, and I'm so happy she's here! Today was our first full day out, and I hired a sitter so we could have some alone time. We did some shopping, went to Liberty, and had tea in Soho's Secret Tea Room (remember, I read about it here on Seeds and Stitches?). It was a great day! And tonight we have dinner reservations--just the two of us. Mommas' day out. (She has 3 little boys, whew). PS. I painted our dining room turquoise (shown above), and I love it! That's what happens when you live in a country that's grey most of the time--you get urges to paint things bright colors.
