respite at the algonquin

was at very grown up conference all day and ran here (Algonquin) for a quick pot of tea, to re-align my aesthetic sensibilities again (lots of biz-boyz-speak at conference and god knows a potted fern, soft-spoken waiters and a piano player does the trick after such an experience)………then there’s a dinner (ah! the grandfather clock just chimed – how lovely) shortly…..

still – learned a lot (for the day job) so time most-well-spent.

ah – tea pot coming towards me – earl grey – fragrant bergamot delightful.

btw, just felt like one of those ladies in a magazine as I did the quick change of top – spritz of Chanel #5, brush teeth and a moist wipe (lavender since you ask) to freshen visage.

feel all capable and sorted once more.
