It was a busy week with senior American colleagues in town and a tradeshow on in London.
We managed to pack it all in with days out retailing at Harrods, Selfridges, Liberty and John Lewis (trend research, not shopping), days out going to exhibitions (Georgia O’Keeffe at the Tate Modern, not just big flowers after all) and bonding over dinner with colleagues.
There were a few topics of conversation we tried to avoid… anything political (we were with a Republican and a Democrat), anything to do with Brexit (we’re still too fragile), anything to do with work… so we landed on religion, film and celebrity culture. Nothing too contentious there!
The end of the year seems to be approaching rapidly despite there being two more months to go. We’re even going Christmas shopping this weekend to try and get the worst of it over. Not exactly the Christmas spirit!
Still we’re booking in lots of things to look forward to so it’s not all doom and gloom!
