Thurday was a 5 am start to Glasgow airport, followed by the Stansted Express into London, a quick ride on a tube train to drop off my case at the gorgeous Charing Cross Hotel, then another ride on the tube to Richmond to reach..........

Next it was off to a lovely restaurant with my editor called Rock and Rose. Very opulent!
Then it was a mad dash back to my hotel, then onto Waterstones in Piccadily for 5 o'clock as that's where the RNA members were meeting.
|Talli Roland, Denyse King, me and Nina Harrington, who isn't paying attention!|

Myself and my lovely editor Carly Byrne.
And whilst the shoes were beautiful, by this point my feet had died. The lovely Anna Louise Lucia volunteered her silver sandals - well, actually I borrowed them as we walked back to the hotel.

Abby and Heidi Rice.
At this point I had to don my shoes again and walk back to Charing Cross with Fiona, except we took the scenic route. I could show you a photo of my feet but it isn't pretty!
And so I finished my visit to London the following morning by visiting my new nephew Oliver, who was born over a month ago and this was my first chance to see him. Needless to say, he is gorgeous!
