Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Christmas shop windows

The best Christmas decorations for me are not in London's main shopping streets like Oxford St and Regent St but in Mayfair and Piccadilly. I may not be able to afford to shop there but it costs nothing to look around.

This is Cartier's. You won't find the price of things in their windows. If you need to ask then you shouldn't be shopping there! Directly across the road is this beautiful shop window.

Unfortunately I can't remember the name of the shop.

    lol! I learnt a long time ago not to enter shops which didn't show the prices of the things in their windows... *sigh*

  7. Oh Marie, you forgot the name of the shop? Darn, I guess I'll just have to order my gifts from the one across the street. Cartiers isn't it? Seriously, I'd love to go window-shopping on that street this time of year. How beautiful those windows are. (And pictures are definitely all I'd take home from any of the stores). Happy Holidays!

  10. Europe does know how to decorate their windows. Cartier in London is much prettier than the one in Paris.
