Vintage Pop Up

From this Thursday to Sunday you can visit a lovely Vintage Pop-Up Shop in Putney, selling all sort of finds from around the country and the continent like jewellery, decorative objects, toys, glass etc. The shop will pop up in a beautiful little house and as an ExPat I m always surprised at how so very different these uniform looking houses are once inside.

Tea and cake will be served in support of the Meningitis Research Foundation.

The River Pageant

As seen and experienced at Putney Bridge, where all the man powered boats started from. It was very cold but everyone was in a very friendly spirit. The kids enjoyed it immensely getting so close to the action.

It was a nice atmosphere this afternoon. Whilst walking along the river we and a few hundred other Londoners admired the first boats getting ready for tomorrow.
