Oh I do like to go along to Prom-a-loms!

Quick page using some Sassafras that I've had lying around for a while. I own several circular die cut papers but I rarely use them. They're one of those things that I like to buy more than I like to use. Note to self: don't buy any more and use the ones you have.

This weekend, I took my new lens for a walk (and I LOVE it) around the metropolis and set up camp in a lovely tea shop called Yumchaa which I discovered this holiday and have visited a couple of times. I really don't like coffee but I do love hanging out in coffee shops with as much tea as I can drink (more than you'd think) and ideally a piece of cake and a good book. However, most coffee shops - proper ones where they encourage you to stay for a really long time tend to serve tea as an afterthought. So although Yumchaa doesn't have sofas (how terribly remiss) they do have a lovely vintagey shabby-chic style and it's a really peaceful beautiful place without being pretentious. Plus they play classical music! And they have innumerable types of leaf tea laid out of the counter for one to inhale and select from. Delish! (And the cake's not bad too).

Yesterday I spend most of the day queueing for the Rogers and Hammerstein Prom at the Royal Albert Hall. I went with one of my friends and we had a great catch-up gossip while queueing and the concert itself was wonderful. I loved the conductor and the orchestra played with such vibrant enthusiasm to make one of the richest sounds I think I've ever experienced. Amazing!

In other news I've now read 4 books in 5 days. Only three more to go - sad face!

Will make another page today though. But first, going to pop into town. See if I can get more of the clothes on my list from the charity shops I didn't visit last week and then if there's time, I can take my book to a coffee shop or something.

Kisses xxx
