I’ve just returned from my country romp in Shropshire. We stayed in my friend Harriet’s parents’ converted barn, which was lovely, and in the middle of nowhere. Apart from late-night stories of nearby murders and the hideous discovery of several slimy intruders, we had a fabulous time.
But it’s back to the grind: If anyone lives or works near Liverpool Street Station, there’s some exciting news. I was passing the Boots in there, and they appear to be doing some refurbishment. That’s not the exciting part. They’re bringing in more brands, including Smahbox, Liz Earle, Ojon and Bumble & Bumble. Fabulous products plus Boots points – what more could your heart ever desire?! I’m not too sure when exactly all this is going to happen, but I’ll ask next time I go in. I can’t wait. This, along with MAC coming to Clapham Junction which is where I find myself many a lunchtime, is excellent news for anyone who enjoys strategically planning their shopping within the work day.
