I always relish the chance of a train journey into London. A chance to do a bit of knitting...

... And catch up with some reading, which was all the more enjoyable now my Kindle has a beautiful new case from Rebecca. I always feel guilty if I take time out to knit or read during the day as they both feel like evening activities but a train journey eliminates that guilt.

And of course when that train journey leads to meeting friends at the V & A, tea and scones in the members room and a chance to see some rather amazing ballgowns...

... it makes for a perfect Friday.


  1. Sounds like the perfect day out to me. Glad you had such a good time.

  2. Knitting on the train used to be one of my favourite pastimes. Enthusiastic brandishing of the needles usually guaranteed me a double seat to myself too, haha!

  3. Yes that sounds pretty perfect to me too!
    That looks like an amazing exhibition.

  4. That knitting looks very similar to my sky scarf!

  5. Oh what a perfect day! I know just what you mean about knitting and reading during 'working hours'.

    And I'm so keen to see the Ballgowns exhibition, though a bit worried about how I'm going to convince G!

  7. Glad you had a great time...l was there too....pity l didn't know you were there too. It was great wasn't it?Lyndax

  8. Gina, you know I detest knitting and I am no Kindle convert but glamour from the 1950's would be absolutely my cup of tea. What a lovely sounding exhibition. I know you couldn't have taken photos so I'm off to the V&A website to see some. Thanks for the heads up.

  9. The V&A is on my list for next week - after seeing your telephone box first, naturally!
