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!

The Butlers

Here is something I haven't come across before - The 'Sloane Street Butlers'. They are employed by shops on Sloane Street to carry customers bags for them. I saw about 10 of them as I walked down the street.

These two 'Butlers' were happy to pose for me. As I could never afford anything from a Sloane Street shop, I thought this was very kind of them.

  8. That is cute to have a butler to carry your stuff, although it never can be so heavy. They better can help at the grocery store.

  9. White gloves, even! I'm trying to imagine that sparkling emu in my garden....

  10. Well, I would certainly hate to carry that sterling silver ostrich all the way down the street by myself. Although it would look lovely on the lanai ;>)!!! Window shopping with camera is my favorite way to shop!
