Esme starts Big School next week. This means that she won’t be with us on Mondays. To mark the momentous occasion and as a rite of passage we are looking after her for two days when she gets to be spoilt. Tuesday’s treats were the computer, a movie, lunch in Belgique in Epping and a painting session which she then exhibited in our hall. The day was rounded off with a strawberry bavois from Belgique.
Wednesday’s treats were Hambleys toy shop in Regents Street, lunch with Uncle Thom in the Living Room, a trip in the London Eye and a visit to Adrian Eckersley’s art exhibition in 54, The Gallery, Shepherd Market (where I bought a print). It says much that Esme is still a little girl and that, despite the sophistication of the treats, her best fun were the swings and roundabouts on South Bank.
