03:33 pm - Wednesday, is it?
The world is currently shimmering in manner of mirage here, thanks to a nasty sinus thing that's laid me low. In the midst of working from home, however, I wave wearily in your direction.

Hiya!

Two Wednesday wish-places today, where I'm mentally visiting in between spells of slight wooziness:

*The newly refurbished hotel at St Pancras, as richly recorded on the Park & Cube blog. Yearning warnings for Food, Fashion, and Architecture.

*the Ritz, also in London, possibly for tea.

I of course would be dressed appropriately for either magnificent place, rather than wearing jeans and pollen-dusted Tretorns as I am now.

That being said -- honestly, on a slightly fragile day, home (with Master Danger stretched out at my feet, with the fan blowing gently on my overheated self, with a nice glass of iced Lady Grey with lemon nearby) is certainly adequate for my needs.

Cheers, and may you find a lovely wish-place of your own today, even if it's home.

Generally speaking, I am delighted to be home during our lovely Indian Summer week, though a bit sullen about having to do errands again after nearly two weeks of lazing about.

I wish your sinus issues to a far-off place however...happy Wednesday!

December 2014, L, for a real cup of tea (or glass of wine)! But for now....

Thank you, A! A little more sleep last night, which means I'm ready to charge into my day now. :)

Hugs and a better day for you!

I have been through St. Pancras and have seriously considered it as a holiday destination. You could stay a fortnight and eat in a different restaurant each night! (I live in a village, so even a railway concourse is an exciting thing for me when it comes to shopping...)

However, I idly examined the rates at the St Pancras Hotel. Never mind.

I am somehow unsurprised that the St Pancras hotel has high rates! A nice lunch in one of the restaurants will have to suffice for a treat. Some day. :)

Cheers, and happy Thursday, with cool things to dream about!
