4 days with my sister showed me that living your life with a baby and a toddler is fun, but it's also incredibly exhausting. The moment you attend to one the other one will make sure it smashes her head in or falls down the stairs and you need to be Mrs Supercool (which my sister is) to not suffer from a continuous nervous breakdown. But to get her away from it all – at least for a day – I dragged her to London where we raided Zara (which normally is the place I go in and out in 30 seconds, thinking 'boooooring'; but not this time, oh no!) and collapsed in Sketch (which the wonderful Andrea of Robinson Pfeffer recommended as an alternative to my usual tea-after-shopping place).
With its far-out interior design, French waitresses wearing snug rosé jackets, bloomers and red Converses and cute floral teapots Sketch is pretty much the closest you can get to feeling like Alice on mushrooms while nibbling on your Earl Grey or cinnamon macaroons and slurping tea. And when you arrive at the toilets you wonder if there really wasn’t something in your Darjeeling...
Happy Weekend, Darlingas, it being a long one for many, giving Thanks and all!
