Sarah said...

Hi Vicky, looks like you had a great time at that there London! It's one of the things I miss living here in the wilds of the country, being able to pop into 'town' when I wanted (am originally an Essex girl myself - but I never danced round my handbag - promise!). Don't miss the dirt, traffic and rudeness though! Ahh and I haven't even mentioned the card yet - as always fantastic! Hope you are enjoying your hols. Sarah
