Birthday Quiz

Today is my birthday :-)

I'm relaxing at home after four nights in London. It was wet, I was ill, not the best holiday I've ever had (or the worst either for that matter)

I visited I Knit's new shop for the first time and stayed all day (and some of the evening), I bought myself a set of Barbara Walker books, and a drop spindle on Saturday.
I got to meet the Harlot on Friday morning, went out for a meal with Jane Sowerby, dried my shoes with a hair drier, went down to reception in my jp's at 9pm on Satuday after the fire alarm went off in my hotel (some lovely soul was having a smoke in their room... grrr), sat on two very busy trains on the way home yesterday.

And I have a two question competition for you !!

This is Victoria Station, I was there just after 10 am yesterday morning.

A beter clock shot.

Question One:

What time was it when I got to Paddington Station ?

I didn't go the most direct route, and I did get distracted on the way. I was pulling my bag along behind me...

The only clue I will give is that I caught my train at 13.27

And Question two:

Where were these bottles left ?
It is somewhere posh (as you would expect) and I'd heard of the shops on either side of the road.

If anyone does get the name of the shop right they will have a special prize, for thosse not near London try the name of the street...

Random number selection will come into play if there are mutliple correct answers.

To enter leave a comment by Saturday 20th, answers will be published on the 21st.
I'm not sure what the prizes will be yet, probably something from the stash wardrobe ;-)

And from me too! Happy Unbirthday WyeSue! (after all, you have 351 of them and only one of the t'other).

I'm going to have to think about the two questions.

If the road was Regent Street (and the shop was Libertys) then I expect that you were cutting it a bit fine at Paddington. 13.10? A wild guess!

Belated birthday wishes! I've just nominated you for the "I love your blog" award. You always knit such gorgeous projects especially the lace ones and I love reading all about them on your blog!

Hmm, champagne and coca cola: it has to be Regent Street, since it looks as if a yummy mummy has been indulging herself at Liberty's whilst her little darling has been running amok in Hamleys. If, on the other hand, 'twas Wye Sue herself who comsumed both bottles--or, more likely, that you got distracted by a certain yarn department--then I doubt very much that you got to Paddington much more than 2 minutes before departure...

I tend to avoid going down to the Big Smoke nowadays having done enough of that in the past but can't think of timings or locations as my London geography only includes Euston station really! Belated Birthday wishes though!!

I guess 13.25 for arrival at Paddington, and Knightsbridge, between Harrods and Harvey Nichols for the bottles.
Good luck with the drop spindle. I've just got one, and now know why it's called "drop".
