That is perhaps my favorite British quote – the simple one word, “Brilliant”. It can be used for so many different things.
I just arrived at my brother’s flat in Notting Hill. He just moved in only a couple of months ago and has already put up some beautiful art work. His furniture is lacking but I’m sure he’s taking his time picking out pieces.
By Far my favorite piece however in his flat is his real life sized arcade game. It’s a Pac Man (with a couple of other choice games) free standing game. I could be standing there for hours!!!
Being in London is like my second home. I love coming back here and everytime I do something new always catches my eyes. I might be joining in on the Knitting Hill group which meets this coming Monday. I was informed of it by Amelia Raitte whom I would be so estatic if I got to meet! She would be the first knit blogger I would meet in person.
For now I am going to nap and knock some of my American time off me… tonight is clubbing and birthday fiestas!
