USEFUL STORE CARDS

My Waitrose and My John Lewis Store Cards
My Waitrose and My John Lewis Store Cards

The good thing about these cards is that they are free and you get rewards all the time unlike the John Lewis Credit card for which you have to spend £500 before you can redeem your points.

Besides getting some discounts you can get a free drink with the My Waitrose card and I’ve ben receiving monthly vouchers for a drink and pastry with my John Lewis card.

When Josh and I go to shopping in Kings Road or go to an exhibition at the Saatchi gallery we always finish up having a free tea and scone at Peter Jones in their restaurant on the 6th floor.

In which other country would you have the freedom to publish Thomas Rowlandson’s (1757-1827) scurrilous cartoons about the monarchy and members of the aristocracy?

Imagine the furore if you circulated prints showing the ruling elite in the toilet, looking stupid, caught in flagrante?
And not only was Thomas Rowlandson able to publish his work but was actively encouraged by King George IV.

Another excellent exhibition but be warned – if you visit it after the Dutch Paintings in the Time of Vermeer and try to read all the fabulous remarks you will need a refreshing cup of tea in the café downstairs.
