Seeing places....

Seeing places, people. Not being at work. A little loveliness between the horribleness.

Did you manage the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition - my artist pal's got a painting there at the moment? Can't wait for my hols at the end of the month. Looks like a nice time was had on yours. x

Lovely pics...I remember being told by the Bishop of Southwark that the Shard is the spire that Southwark cathedral never had....

Nana - yes we did go to the RA and I would love to know which one was your friends .....some exhibits were interesting and some were a little....well...emperors new clothes comes to mind...'tis certainly true that beauty is in the eye of the beholder eh?
NB...we had lunch in the cathedral courtyard and I loved the idea of the old and the new being so close and so harmonious.

What horribleness are you referring to Libby? I do hope that everything is okay.

I wish I knew the stories behind the photos...the piano?
Glad you have had some treats to give you a lift x

Ah yes, the world. Hmm. Glad you had a nice time all the same, though.

Pam - my natural default setting is anxiety and worry so I am lucky enough to have discovered in these my later years that regular little jaunts give me a break from my job which I hate and a chance to step out of caring for my ma and pa for a day or two.....how lucky am I? x

Love old stone in close proximity to new glass & steel. London does that pretty well. Nice photos too!

My natural default setting is anxiety and worry as well. It makes me exhausted at times, and the joyful moments, so rare and always associated with family and simple pleasures, are all the more appreciated.
