Around WC1

These are actually from August, but I forgot about them! That shows you how on the ball I am at the moment.



DUCKS!

My friend Simon and I went on an adventure to Barnes to visit the London Wetland Centre. We saw a lot of ducks (and some swans and a couple of otters) and got rained on and had a very nice time.



Keeping Mum

I like hanging out at my mum’s house. From the constant buzz of north London to that tiny residential sliver where (so-called) London meets countryside, it’s a welcome break. My mum has always loved flowers, as you can see from her garden above. It’s the perfect place to sit with the dog (I may post pics another time) when everyone else is out.



Down to Margate

It was a miserable day in Margate when I was there last week. Instead of taking photos outdoors (which would have looked terrible), I took a few inside the arcades instead. I do love a bit of tack, as we know.



High Tea of Highgate

I’m spoiling you with Bethany recently. She and I went for tea in High Tea of Highgate and it was SO CUTE. We also befriended these two little boys who shared a pot of tea. I know, tea. At their age (11-12), I was getting mucky outdoors on my bike and generally being a little bit feral. Tea in a teashop did not feature in my view of the world.



London Bridge way

I went on a little wander a few nights ago. I got off the bus early at Old Street and walked down to London Bridge (I’ve done that walk a few times and quite like it). Reaching London Bridge just after sunset, it looked really pretty so I took a few shots to share. I’m off to Barcelona in the morning for my annual long weekend jaunt with Sam, so I’m sure I’ll come back with some good photos!



A few more from Camden Passage

Most Islington residents (or wannabe Islington residents) will tell you they love Camden Passage. It’s cute, there’s a lot going on and there’s plenty to see, whether you want to eat, buy a necklace from a junk shop or ponder on some antique furniture.
