London
The delay is terrible - so sorry.  In actual fact I am off work again, with another chest infection.  I do certainly hope it doesn't last as long as the infection did in the New Year.

The decorators have finished for the moment.  So have some sticky paint at present, bur as of tomorrow I can start to get some of the pictures up in my hall.  The carpets ar due in a couple of weeks time, so can't get the bookcases back in the hall, or the furniture organised in the spare room.  But as I am really not great I have the perfect excuse not to push myself.

So, following my photos of the Florence Nightingale Museum, I walked a bit around the St Thomas's area. When I was in my first year at college in 1979 we did human dissection at St Thomas's, yet I couldn't work where we used to gI had dinner in County Hall, sounds posh I know, until I tell you it was a McD's!!! And then back over Westminster Bridge ... and as, ever the camera was busy.

Thanks - I don't often get to see London after dark, so it was nice to see well known views from a different point of view.

Really struggling with the bugs, despite being a good girl and resting.

I hope you feel better soon! Suffering from one myself right now, I know how not-fun it is!

London is so win and your photos are terrific. I am enjoying catching up with you through spams :DD

I love what we call "The Queen's Golden Clock" and your photos of it are wonderful. The Palace of Westminster is impressive.

Love the Big Ben pics with the cars and the river reflection (and the scary man with the big axe!) And she'll always be Boudacia to me too.
