Christina has returned from Sweden with a book written by Inger's daughter, Anna Ribbing, for Mairi. We met for lunch at Carluccio's and caught up on all the news.
She gave me the book and also the lovely cotton bag produced by Gudrun Sjoden. I was delighted to learn that there is now a store in London at 65-67 Monmouth Street. website: http://www.gudrunsjoden.com.
On another window ledge in the I discovered that the desert type of plant that Mairi gave me about a year ago has produced a flower!
Given that plants never do well in my care, at least in the past, I am quite delighted with this emerging splash of colour in the living room.
