First you take the family on the London Eye, just to butter them up.
Then you have lunch in all bar one, making sure your husband has at least one pint.
Then you suggest a walk through the tunnel and witness a grafitti artist at work.
Then you find a post office where they will tell you that they don't know how to look up an address. Something I conveniently forgot about England, but was reminded almost immediately upon my arrival - Computer Says No is barely exaggerated, that's why it's so funny.
Then you find a library where they tell you that the shop is practically next door and you are about to walk past it.
And suddenly there it is in it's grubby glory.
I liked this shop, it was exciting to see a range of yarns that you would never see in yarn stores in Australia, like fibrespates Scrumptious. Which I may have fallen for quite heavily - in baby pink and gold. When I took it to the counter, the person behind the counter said, in deference to the beautiful yarn - 'ooh, you're going to make something lovely'. And indeed, I hope to make something lovely with it.
