What have we been upto?
I attended the Society of Garden Designers awards ceremony at the Landmark London Hotel on the Marylebone Road for an evening of catch up with lots of old and new friends and colleagues.
A big Thank You to the Land Design Partnership who invited me along for the evening. The equivalent to the BAFTAS for garden design surrounded by tv celeb garden designers, Chelsea Main Avenue Designers and many SGD members. A lovely evening, catching up with suppliers, other designers and landscaping companies. Here I am with Christina from Land Design Partnership and Rae from Rae Wilkinson Design. The food was delicious the wine was flowing, but the room was incredibly warm, we chatted all night, celebrating the success of great designs.
Unfortunately I didn't stay up in London as I needed to work on the new website at the weekend, getting the last train home, I went prepared with running trainers to switch into to make a dash for the mini cab at Sevenoaks train station beating at least 20 others to a cab in the rain....yaaah my regular running comes in handy.
