Yesterday I got to spend the afternoon with an old family friend in London. Linda – the best friend of my Aunt Brenda – was in London with a group of her university students. We went to the National Portrait Gallery, had coffee, and then did a bit of shopping on Oxford street. At the gallery we saw an http://www.npg.org.uk/vanityfair/index.htm. Very interesting – some beautiful portrait photography. We also saw just a portion of the gallery’s regular collection which included several pieces featuring Florence Nightingale (very appropriate as Linda is a nursing professor leading a group of nursing students).
Our shopping was fun as well. Linda, who has a grand neice on the way, checked out the amazing selection of baby buggies at Mamas and Papas. I finally made it Top Shop on Oxford street and was promptly overwhelmed at the enormous selection. At another shop I found a small gift for Brenda, who we wish could have been with us.
PS: For those who have been asking I posted a photo of our new sofa on Flickr.
