Mar 14-15 Left early for airport and checked in found out the plane was a hour late.Got wheelchair to get to gate and bypass the long lines at security. Plane not crowded D had 4 seats and I had 3. food horrible I was glad I had some cheese sticks in my purse so we didn’t starve! Got chair again at Gatwick and we met our driver in less than 1/2 hour, Warmly greeted at hotel
Room not ready but Cornelius the guest relation manager called up and told them to ready it at once, in the room in 15 minutes. Nice large room with club lounge privileges, including free Internet. full English breakfast , coffee and tea and cookies all day and canapes and drinks wine or beer in evening all included!! David collapsed and I went out! Got oystercard refilled and hit Boots and Waitrose for some of their super olives.Had a short rest and cleaned up for dinner at La Famiglia. always our first night stop. Met with many kisses and hand shakes and D had his mussel order placed as soon as he walked in They know him!!I ordered fried artichokes as a starter and had to share! D followed with swordfish and sauteed zucchini and I had stuffed veal roast. No dessert and early to bed!

Mar 16 Woke to rainy weather the gods were not with us this trip , light rain not enough for an umbrella but I forgot a rain hat. cold and WINDY.Never got around to buying one glad I didn’t forget my coat this trip like last trip! Had a big breakfast and headed to King’s row. Stopped in to see a friend Fiona at the Sydney Street Gallery before heading across the street to Chelsea Old Town Hall for a big Antique show.Had free tickets so walked right in and xspent several hours just looking. Headed to Duke of York Square to the BADA show stopping in Partridges for lunch first. D had a big chicken Caesar salad and gorgeous furniture and paintings and the silver.,I learned that emeralds start out as aquamarines from a dealer that specializes in gemstones. Getting late and we have a busy day tomorrow.i had quiche. Show was fantastic
