When the meeting was over I was lucky to have two hours left before heading back to Paddington and on to Heathrow. So what to do? Shopping of course! For doorknobs in Notting Hill. Yes, I'm crazy. I've been to Chloe Alberry several times and every time I have gotten new ideas. Just changing door knobs actually changes a lot. And that comes from the woman who has hardly no interest at all in interior design. This time I got 6 new door knobs for the the cabinets in the hallway. When I got home last night I changed one immediately and it looks fabulous.
The original Hummingbird Bakery where the cupcake craze started in 2004 is just down the road from Chloe Alberry so of course I had to go there too. Being a Monday the place was empty besides three lovely women behind the counter and the amazing smell of cupcakes. So I decided to sit down and have some coffee and a Red Velvet cupcake. Total bliss! The cupcake of course but also the fact that I was in London, not in a hurry and was just sitting down for some me-time. It's those little things that makes it all worth while. Something to remember next Monday afternoon when the day is dragging on. Life is good.
