Well, last week. After a vastly long flight. Overburdened with luggage. Bear met her and brought her over in his van. After lunch we staggered over to the shopping centre and purchased a few essentials, then settled down for a quiet evening at home. Poor old Nibs suffering from jetlag so did not get much sleep.
On Saturday we went up to the Lucien Freud exhibition. Masses of people of course so it was a bit hard seeing things. After that Nibs insisted on paying for lunch at the Crypt which was nice. We leapt off the bus and popped into the Courtauld where there was an exhibition, but Nibs was most impressed by the mediaeval stuff on the ground floor. All this was followed by another evening watching the soaps.
On Sunday morning, I had intended to purchase lunch at M & S, but Nibs said we should try Morrisons. Glad we did as the chicken there was very good indeed, and we bought all the other ingredients and the papers and again, Nibs insisted on paying. She will have to stop all this. Bear, with partner and daughter arrived for lunch, carrying a chilled bottle of Moet to add to the cheer. Nibby cooked an excellent roast which we ate in the garden. We had fruit salad and ice cream for pudding with a coffee for Bear and me.
Yesterday we went to the Royal Academy where we really enjoyed the Hockney exhibition. We were a bit dazed by all this, and had a look around Fortnum's before setting off home again. Fortnums was heavily decorated for the Diamond Jubilee and lots of people were snapping outside.
Nibs left this morning, so all is very quiet today.
