When I awoke to Mulberry's The Blog .... Fashion Week Moments it was too gorgeous not to share.  It captures exactly that .... the behind the scene moments that most of us don't get to experience.  These photos for me portray the energy, anticipation, excitement, elation and relief .... probably in that order !! 

In Mulberry's words .... Months of planning go into creating a show for London Fashion Week.  Then the day seems to be over in minutes ! 

wimbledon weekend

How will we ever go on after the excitement of Wimbledon is over !! Oh well not long till the Olympics and more London fever.

The views of London in the full flight of summer are always soooo enticing.

The uniforms by Ralph Lauren so very stylish. Unlike other years however, the players didn't provide a lot of excitement in the fashion stakes.

Blue skies at last after all that rain ... what a wet and soggy summer England is having.  Thank goodness for the magical closing of the roof.  I do love scanning the crowd for famous faces and the fashion ... well Kate and Pippa mainly.

Strawberrries and cream are synonymous with Wimbledon.  This little selection of Wimbledon food equally as suitable for those watching the final at home.

Serena Williams is now Wimbledon champion for the 5th time and what a fabulous match. My money is on Federer this evening but the Men's final is only a matter of hours away !!!

By the time you are reading this ... the 2012 Men's Singles winner will have his name on the trophy.

london revisited one sunday afternoon

Deirdre Brennan - Sunday, April 22, 2012

Sitting here in the Southern Highlands on a gloomy Sunday afternoon.....skies grey and misty rain falling....I am transported back to London.  I am always reminded of London in this sort of weather.... for obvious reasons and I absolutely adore it!!!! Very strange indeed for a Queenslander.

I thought I would reminisce by flicking through my London photos.....an experience that would be so much more enjoyable had I printed off actual photos and put them in an album.  Nevertheless, I searched through My Pictures file on the computer and found myself lost in the memories of my home away from home.  Any number of hours have elapsed and here I am still indulging both myself and you with my favourite buildings.....the ones that just capture a moment or a mood.

Rows of elegant white terraces, Georgian townhouses (or Annabel's nightclub for those in the know....in the beautiful Berkeley Square) or Claridge's Hotel in Mayfair for afternoon tea.

I have always loved the Michelin Building in South Kensington .... not just for the building itself but for the activity that surrounds it...Walton Street, Draycott and Sloane Avenues, the V&A and on it goes......what I would give to be there right now !!

There is always something extremely comforting about the London Pub ...  particularly after a day shopping.

Or just head for Somerset House on the Strand and spend a lazy Sunday afternoon exploring the Impressionist collection at the Courtauld Gallery .... that's what I would be doing if I were there right now !!
