Anyway, if you do have time to get out and about and experience our amazing city, here are a few of my picks of events in the coming weeks and months...
Last days of Made in Clerkenwell
Open Studios where you can view and buy from some of London's most talented designers, from jewellery to glass, to homewares. Lovely gifts like Kate Clarke's prints...
26th - 30th May
Westfield Shopping Centre in West London is hosting a Home Trends Show - which will include celebrity guests, (I'm hoping for the Dulux Dog!) interior design master classes and demo's and discounts for the likes of Habitat, M&S etc. Definitely worth a peep if you are out shopping there over the bank holiday.
If you fancy a night out on the tiles, why not raise money for charity while you're at it?! Swing for Skin is a 1940's tea dance being held onboard the HMS Belfast to raise money for DEBRA UK, a charity who support those with EB - a genetic blistering skin condition. Get dressed up and go back in time for a night! :)
Patchwork Harmony is also holding a charity night in collaboration with Yes London to raise money for Dress for Success - a charity that assists the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. We'll be having a few interesting speakers talking about business related topics, and we'll have a fine set of raffle prizes for you to win! Come along for a glass of wine, a cuppa and some cake!

If you are a design or craft blogger then why not sign up for the London Blognic?! Lynne and Ellie will be holding this as a get together for bloggers in Regents Park... get those picnic baskets out! :)
Vintage at the Southbank - Wayne Hemingway's event of all things vintage, from bands, to film, shops, dance and workshops. Make a weekend of it!
Anytime! And hey, if you're just not feeling the traisping around London, and just want to curl up on the sofa (with your laptop) check out newly launched online publication - Midcentury Magazine Have a nose around other peoples homes, without leaving the comfort of your own!
