My favourite shop

Last week, while I was still busy figuring out how my digital camera worked, bogwitch requested I post a picture of my favourite shop. I said I would. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to actually go there yet...I hope she'll forgive me for cheating: here's a picture not taken with my new camera in or of my favourite shop in Holland, but instead it's one of me inside my most favourite shop of all:

Tacky, I know, but there you have it: out of all the shops in all the world, quite possibly I love Harrods best. It's got everything. Friendly staff; clean, spacious powder rooms well-stocked with makeup and perfumes; lovely bedlinens and porcelain tastefully displayed...I can easily spend hours going round the millinery and shoe departments alone, and I especially love-love-love to have a wander through the foodhalls, picking up a few things to munch on while I'm there. And it's not just the foodhalls -- how about the chocolate bar on the 6th floor? It's the perfect place to sit down, rest your feet and sort through your purchases. And I like to meet my friends in the tapas bar downstairs. Or slurp champagne and oysters on those days I'm feeling decadent and devil-may-care.

The only thing I don't like about Harrods is the crowds. And the fact that they've thrown out most of the haberdashery department a year or two ago.

You look Tres sophisticated!

Cheers! And I hadn't just popped in to pose for a picture, either (did you know you're actually not allowed to take photographs inside Harrods -- some silly rule I've trodden underfoot on many an occasion) -- I was calling for a cab to take our purchases back to our hotel when my friend whipped out her camera.

We had also visited that other favourite haunt of mine in the vicinity: the V&A, as is evidenced by the carrier bag in my hand.

I'm more of a British Museum frequenter myself, but the V&A is fascinating.

I love the British Museum as well. And the National Gallery. And the (member) restaurants at the Tate and the National Portrait Gallery...

I've never been in the portrait Gallery, and I must get round to the new Tate.
