I landed in London this afternoon to extraordinarily beautiful, unseasonally warm weather.
We checked in at the lovely Dukes Hotel in St James
After unpacking M (my husband) and I went to a pub to meet our friends, who live here.
It was so warm we could sit outside and enjoyed a lovely dinner.
Lots of Pimm’s was consumed and fun was had by all. 😉
Since we were near, I went by Les Senteurs in Elizabeth Street, sadly closed of course and pressed my nose to the glass windows. Somehow I was expecting a very much larger store, but it looks lovely and will be inspected closely tomorrow during opening hours.
Upon coming back to the hotel there were two surprises waiting for me:
First a message saying that the course I am here to attend will not start tomorrow as planned, but had to be postponed to Tuesday. Well, that gives me more free time, which is fine.
The other news was an email by Sarah, of Ormonde Jayne.
Sadly Linda Pilkington had to cancel my appointment, since there were unexpected troubles that would keep her from coming to the store tomorrow. I was so disappointed!
All your questions, everything I wanted to ask….sigh, not to be.
I will still have my perfume portrait taken by the store manager Natalie, and I look forward to that. Of course I will write about it.
Hopefully I will be able to do my interview with Ms Pilkington through email soon.
I am crushed, and I am so sorry for all of you who were looking forward to this too!
For now I am about to go to sleep and enjoy the fact that no crying baby will wake me. Oh, I will miss that…
