I was on my own while he had meetings, and then we would meet up for dinner. We saw this wonderful, small, excellent, magical, intimate production of Romantics Anonymous. Awkwardness and love. Tiny theatre, massive talent, and delighted audience. It is based on this charming movie. A week later we are still talking about it. So, so good!
I had lazy mornings and then explored on my own in the afternoons. Loved walking from our hotel through Hyde Park, and then on to the V&A. I have a terrible - I mean, really absent - sense of direction, so the Citymapper App was my best friend!
First up at the V&A, the Woman's Hour Craft Prize exhibit. LOVE.
I really enjoyed this small display of Celia Pym's visible mending work:
Gorgeous esthetic. This is what wabi-sabi is ALL about.
I dearly wish I'd been in London for one of her mending days at the V&A.
Read her statement here:
Next, a little walk through the life of the Buddha....
I could visit the V&A a hundred times and never tire of it (and admission is free)!
