miss b loves ..........Easter treats and traditions!



I always know that spring has arrived when cute signs appear on the trees down our lane! 



One of the highlights of this time of year is of course Easter. The tree which we bought last year with the glass and feather baubles has been brought out again ........



..... with a couple of new additions. A pretty egg-shaped candle (too cute to light?) and traditional woven palm leaves....both surprise gifts which were brought back from Barcelona for us this week. Palm Sunday is the beginning of Semana Santa(Holy Week)and the palms are sold on stalls in the city.

miss b loves....Notting Hill, London



I have always been attracted to colourful buildings so it's therefore no surprise that Notting Hill is one of my favourite areas of London. 


Notting Hill now has a reputation as an affluent, fashionable area with house prices to match! Around every corner there are row upon row of impressive Victorian terraces .....



There's no shortage of high end shops, boutiques, cafés and restaurants especially along Westbourne Grove ......

We packed so much into our visits to Dubai last October and December... As usual I took so many photos! Below are the ones which didn't quite make it into the posts.......

miss b loves .......Paddington



While strolling around London before Christmas, I stumbled across Paddington Bear .....well several actually! I have fond childhood memories of the Paddington Bear books and the adventures of this very cute bear with a marmalade habit!

I discovered that these statues were part of the Paddington Trail and with more time, I would have liked to have seen them all! The trail has now ended, the bears have been auctioned and over £930,000 has been raised for the NSPCC Childline Service. The trail coincided with the release of the Paddington film.
