My Sunday Photo 17 January 2016

feeling a bit headless  



Mr P. and I went off early to the markets this morning as our niece had a stall selling her organic pet treats.  I took a little stroll and came across this lovely headless lady showing off her black and sparkly dress.  The market is in West End, a trendy inner-city area still catering to the old hippie types that used to live there (think organic, think local, think hemp and bamboo) but who can't afford to anymore:=)

  20. I love nothing better than a stroll around a market, sadly in Dubai all I've seen are artisans and craft ones, nothing like the UK
