Pining for Portmeirion

Well, that was a lovely holiday, in one of the strangest villages I've ever seen. Portmeirion was built in the early 1900s by the architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis to his own design. He was also a great conservationist and would collect all sorts of bits of buildings or statuary to incorporate i...

Strange

It's silly-o-clock in the morning and I'm in one of the weirdest places I've ever been. Designed and constructed by Clough Williams Ellis in the early 1900's Portmeirion on the north coast of Wales will be familiar to millions as the setting for the TV series The Prisoner. The village was originall...

Happoo Day!

Hurrah! Pussy did a poo. :):):) Went up town just to get out of the house and to forget about litter trays for a while so meandered around Tate Mod, had lunch, took a few pics, then ambled back home. Had a spot of rain, which was nice, now it's sunny and cool. Here's a pic of some teenagers c...

Sometimes Things Go Wrong

Am a bit fed up this week. We were supposed to go on hols for a few days next week but hubs is sick, the cat is sick, and various other things are going wrong.

Tall Ships - The End

Well I did bunk off work, and I did get some pics. They were beautiful vessels. You can see some in my Portfolio.

Peeps

Just some visitors to Greenwich yesterday. Off out today to see if I can see the leaving parade.

He's Back!

Nelson. Admiral, that is. He disappeared from outside the Trafalgar Pub at Greenwich quite a while ago and left only a stump but today he was back. Hurray. :):):) Spent a fab day at the Tall Ships festival again and just wandered around taking snaps. Went to my fave fish and chip shop for a bag ...

Fun on the Thames

It was fun by the River Thames yesterday as there's a weekend of Tall Ships and other craft taking place. I stayed on the Island Gardens side of the river as you get a nice view of the Royal Naval College from there. Besides, it was packed on the Greenwich side. Took quite a few pics but deleted m...

Little Critter

Just a little caterpillar I saw on my shrubs yesterday. Apparently it will become a vapourer moth, dull brown in comparison.

A Rubbish Walk

Started at Brick Lane. I think I got there too early because it was closed but I detoured around Spitalfields Market while I was there anyway. Then walked up Bishopsgate to pop into TKMaxx then on to St Paul's, over the bridge, and into Tate Mod for lunch. The queues were too long there though so I...

Top of the Heap

Had a lovely walk over Hampstead Heath today and to the top of Parliament Hill. Took a few snaps, mostly terrible, now deleted, as it was very hazy, but salvaged one for the record. Had a quick snack at the hut then home. I love HH, they have such a lovely variety of dogs being taken for walks ov...

Not Quite True

Went to the car radio shop yesterday to buy a radio and get it fitted. The sign said "Open 7 days". Perhaps they just open 7 days a month or year and it was my mistake! Or, they work in a different space/time continuum. :( It was only after I'd taken my shots that I realised I had be...

Better days

A bit down today for various reasons. Won't go into everything but there's one thing of beauty in my life that always makes me smile. Tomorrow will be better. :) Update: Have now been to B&Q to get some canes and then came back and mowed the lawn. Did a bit of weeding and general clear...

Not for Blokes

Boy, did I make a mistake today. There are two photo exhibitions on at the Science Museum so seeing as it had stopped raining I thought I'd go and have a look. Obviously, I'd completely forgotten about school holidays, and it was only once I'd got on the tube and noticed the levels of screaming an...

The Guv

Took the opportunity to trim the bushes and hedges while it wasn't raining. Someone was keeping an eye on me as usual just to see that I wasn't slacking. :)
