Every six weeks Mr. D and I pack up our bags and head to London to work for two or three weeks time.
You’d think I would get used to it, but each and every visit, I am shocked by the glamour and extent of the wealth here. London is beyond fancy.
There are four short blocks between the hotel and Mr. D’s office.
Today I met him for lunch. In those four blocks I passed Hermes, Asprey, Tiffany, Chopard, Bottega Veneta, Ferragamo, Gucci, Mikimoto, Rolex, De Beers, Graff (being my most favorite window!) and many, many others.
Like a parakeet in a mirror. I could not stop myself from staring into these windows! I wish I was a quarter as fancy as these shops on Bond Street – Who shops here? – If I were, I may have had the nerve to walk in. But I am not, so I didn’t. If these sort of diamonds are sitting in the windows, can you imagine what they’ve got inside?
