Today I had an important meeting and wanted to feel swish but warm. I was up early and it felt cold - so out came my dark grey and black sale bargain knitted dress, with a blue/brown swallows scarf, blue tights & brown boots.
When I got to Paddington station in London, Ikea were doing a bear sale for charity - below is the stall - the white speech bubble on the right (below departures board) says - "Teddy honesty box'. You put money in an envelope and posted it in. Not that trusting though - the man in a high vis jacket (just seen, next to speech bubble and behind cardboard trees) was a security guard. Guarding the bears.
The pandas were selling out fast. It was quiet when I first took the photo then as I was leaving, a crowd descended around the bear box! It was funny to see people leaving the station carrying bears. It did look a bit strange when security looked in my bag later ('A panda?').
It all reminded me of the bear shop when we visited the pandas at Edinburgh zoo - see post here -
Somebody thought the panda was for them -
*Percy stamps paw*
I am hiding it behind my back as she goes huffing off.
It was a lovely day in London (no rain, in contrast to the South West, where I had travelled from) -
And there were lots of excited tourists, which always makes me smile. I still get a kick out of going to London, even though I sometimes go weekly for work.
So all in all, a pretty good Monday! I am shortly heading over to Patti's to be Visible in my knitted dress (before getting an early night) - why don't you come on over to Visible Monday?
Happy Monday xxx
