So what to do to use time when highly jet lagged over a weekend. Two weekends ago I was in the UK, then last weekend unexpectedly in Washington DC area. Was supposed to be on my way towards home, but a few days delayed. So a weekend there too. In UK I visited Oxford again, and enjoyed that a lot. Various shopping and looking around. Annie Sloan Interiors where I got a (signed copy !) of her Workbook and also some more of her paint brushes. A call in to Cath Kidston, a fave place to get a few things. Stopped at Objects of Use, to buy black pig bristle paint brushes with stainless steel ferrules, made in Britain. There found also some amazing french made tailors measuring tapes and got pink and blue. And a navy blue leather British satchel bag. For dinner I stopped at Jamie Oliver's Italian restaurant and enjoyed a wonderful meal and great wine and service too. Then Sunday, a visit to The Packhouse antique centre near Farnham in Surrey. Found there some vintage linens. And saw great statues and things outside, but too big to send home !
