A tradition market barrow - the owner said I could jump on board for a photo - I declined - I did ask if we could borrow it so K could drag me around London on it in a very stylish manner - he laughed and declined.
Outside Oxo Tower
New very swish apartments just outside Tate Modern
Across the river
A boat in a wall - around the back of Oxo Towers
Then on to the South Bank - the day after the Vintage Fair. The Beach Huts were fab. I didn't get a photo of the outside and these photos were taken through perspex so are not the best - hope you like them.
A spotty cossie - lovely.
A rouched number
A close up of the spotty one
A pair of ladies enjoying their holiday - wonder what bathing attire they wore?
Inside the traditional Beach Hut - I could have moved in straight away. I was surprised how big it seamed inside - the photos were taken through chicken wire so they are a little blurred.
Look at the essential item - the Needlecraft Magazines - I have always taken a sewing/knitting/crochet project on holiday so this really appealed to me.
Well that's all folks.
We had a super , super time just the two of us, very busy but relaxed, doing as we pleased, pottering and pondering.
Thanks K it was faberoony.
Looking forward to Cornwall in two weeks time - we have only just booked it and we have persuaded The Nannie (Chipper Nellie - yes I stole that phrase from you I love it when you refer to your mum as 'The Granny - so I have unashamedly stolen it) to come along for the ride. She initially said 'no thank you' she said it was our holiday for our family 'I think when I got a little tearful and said 'but you are my family too' that she had a rethink and has said 'yes'. I am so pleased, Mum hasn't been to Cornwall since I was about 14/15 (yes that's a long time ago) so we can't wait to show her all our favourite places. When she asked what she should pack my reply was 'your cheque book' followed by hoots of laughter and me saying about 500 times 'mum I am kidding, you do know i'm kidding don't you'. My mum;s reply 'I am good now you know I know how to use my card and that's what I will do'.
Have I told you how proud I am of my mum. Since Dad died she has been fabulous. Her moto is 'I can sit in and be miserable and tell people I am fed up or I can go out put a smile on my face and make the best of what I have got' - I don't think she knows just how much that means to us.
Going now as I am getting a bit tearful - time for a smile.
