Photos Will Arrive ... Soon!

Well, I hope so!

I had this morning off work again but decided I needed to catch up with my best friend, in person.  I am so glad I did as life was even tougher than normal for her (and that's saying something!).  The least of her worries is that she is still Covid-scared ... so, yes, we sat outside.  We sat the covered part of her stable yard, as it was raining off & on!  She opened up quite a bit, so all in all, despite being cold and a drive each way it was a very special morning.

Now I have a few photos to post, some more to edit ... and then to post, hopefully later today.

As ever -

London 2021 #2

These photos are from a couple of different places.

The first set are from Trafalgar Square.  For 3 of the 4 years I was at college I used to walk across the square morning & evening, as the building is just round the corner ... so it was, as ever, lovely to revisit those 3 years of my teens & twenties.

One of the other places I went to was Sir John Soane's House which is a very eclectic mix, as you can see by these few photos ( and the Web Site here)

The final set of this selection are from The Supreme Court .... well, I had to visit, as I hope it will be my only time in court!  My brother Tim is a lawyer, in case you didn't know.
