I didn’t set out to ‘shop’. Just a quick look in Slater & King after a consultation at the hairdresser’s, in advance of Monday’s appointment. Mostly I was looking to pick up a Valentine’s Day card for my husband. And then I saw this. A little bit of home on a grey London day, and the place where my hen’s night was held, 8 years ago, to boot.
It’s one of only ten, by a local artist who took the design from the original Bondi Icebergs sign (on the right). I didn’t find a Valentine’s Day card that didn’t make me feel a bit squeamish. But this, full of memories for me and, more recently, for my swimmer/ surfer Bondi-loving English husband, is perfect.
