The last night

December 7, 2011








. . . . . . . .

On my last night in London, I had already given back the keys to my flat and needed a place to sleep. And I had just finished up an awful week at work (plus packing). I was exhausted and I needed to chill out. So I booked a room at the St. John Hotel for a little treat.

They took good care of me (as you can see). The best part: sitting in bed and eating chocolate ice cream in a silver dish. That must be some kind of heaven.

Very early the next morning, the chef made me a bacon sandwich to take to the airport, and I was on my way home.

    Wow, that dinner looks truly delicious. I should have pampered myself like this when I had my last night in Sweden this summer!

    everything looks so lovely. such a good and interesting feeling to really “treat” yourself when you deserve it.

    Wow, what a treat! I’m going to have to request that my husband start serving me chocolate ice cream in a silver dish. Very nice!
