Recommended Posts

Have a look at the good things to see in London thread and pick some. Or go to your nearest train station, buy a ticket, get the next train that comes in (unless it's your usual commuter train) and get off wherever you fancy and just go for a wonder and explore. Take a book and walk to a nice pub or cafe. Have lots of lie ins. Visit someone you haven't seen for a while. Do some DIY or gardening. Erm i can't think of any more, just do what takes your fancy at the time. Have a good week.

Go to World's End, walk along the river and around Chelsea Harbour, then get a number 11 all the way to Liverpool Street Station which takes you past a lot of touristy London, but then walk around the City, visit the Guildhall, go to St Paul's and climb up the Monument. Take a bus or DLR to Isle of Dogs and enjoy a walk around there and the City Farms all over the place. Get the tide times and walk along the River. Visit Kew Gardens. Do the Fullers Brewery Tour. Have a drink in a pub on the Strand on the Green. Walk around Green Park and St James's Park. Go to some fringe theatre. Go to Battersea and look at the power station close up. Look at the views from Blackheath Park. Walk around the Dome's perimeter and see the wildlife being encouraged on to the shores of the Thames by some good design within the river walls there. Take a river cruise. Ohhhhhhhh it's what I do!

Book some cookery/wine tasting/piano/riding/race track driving/hot air ballooning/whatever blows your hair back lessons and learn that new thing you've always thought you'd enjoy. Then book a personal shopper and a haircut and reveal the sexy new you just in time to meet Daizie at the EDF drinks.

A personal shopper is someone who takes you clothes shopping and produces a fabulous and groovy new you by dressing you in a fabulous and groovy way. Depending on the shopper of course. They might actually produce a troll in baggy knickers but that's not usually the look they go for.


Kind of Trinny and Susannah but, well, nice.

    • Aria and Dan were again amazing in their quick response to my problem (leaking toilet flush), their excellent workmanship and super politeness.  I have used them several times before and am always impressed. Last but not least,  they charge completely honestly.  Thank you!
    • Fair point. They could then blame themselves rather than older people for apparently ruining their futures.
    • I would suggest the fabric stores around soho.  But if you don’t mind shopping online, I’ve found a couple that might suit what you’re looking for online:   Orange https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/atcham-braid-col-04-orange-cream/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh9GWPOUamGa77QNpGdANkK0r7F7y-4uCliLseY-dfUcZDCTMLDAXQRoCU7kQAvD_BwE   Green https://www.jamiltonupholstery.co.uk/product/plain-straight-gimp-braid-col-617-green/?gad_source=1&gclid=CjwKCAjwoPOwBhAeEiwAJuXRh-63bOJYHpbGmACA9iPsRXmwmX8iY5y8Ks6XxDq1lnVLdE8gp-pfjxoCXs4QAvD_BwE   i would also suggest Etsy for things like this.   Hope you find what you’re looking for 😊
    • We live nearby and often chatted with friendly Joe. Sad to see him go, he said he was retiring. Heard it’s going to be a café/coffee shop on the day he left.
