It’s been a very busy week and an even busier weekend which means that Novel Insights has been a little bit quiet lately! So now I’m recuperating with my laptop in front of some very bank holiday Monday viewing (Mary Poppins) and a cup of Chamomile tea.
I had an absolutely brilliant weekend with girlfriends who came up from Newcastle to see Sex and The City 2, although after one too many cocktails and all the excitement I have to admit to being a bit tired out! We packed lots in including a trip to the wonderful Grace Kelly exhibition at the V&A to see her gorgeous outfits and accessories (how inspiring!).
We also got a bit of culture at the National Portrait gallery and I even spotted the below bookish portraits before being told to stop taking photographs (oops…).
… and a bit of a heroine of mine:
I love the National Portrait Gallery and it’s definitely worth a visit if you enjoy people spotting. We rounded up the weekend with a cup of tea in the Laduree cafe at Harrods.
On another note, if you’ve popped by Stuck in a Book blog lately you may have seen that Simon T, Claire (Paperback Reader) and myself are doing a sort of informal readalong of The Vet’s Daughter by Barbara Comyns this week.
I’m starting that today and can’t wait to get stuck in. Do join us if you have a copy!
What did you get up to this weekend?
