Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

The propstore bar

This bar has just opened next to the National theatre on the South bank of the Thames. I think it is referred to as a 'pop-up' bar and will probably just be around for the Summer (but don't quote me on that as I might have got it wrong). What is unusual about it, is that it has been furnished from the theatre's propstore..

















Not sure what will happen when it rains!


 
It looked a great place to meet your friends with so much around to talk about. Even the toilets were made up of bits and pieces - but they did work!

  7. I love the whole pop up movement that has even hit our little backwater town but this seems especially creative.

  12. Dearest Fun60,
    Oh, never heard of 'pop-up' bar. Must be very interesting and unique and also fascinating place to visit. England is really exotic for me, my friend.
    Even in Japan, the news of coming royal baby is on TV every day. Happy for the people in your country.
    Wishing you a lovely week.
    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

  14. I know pop-up stores, but never seen a pop-up bar. It is funny to sit there I think and the toilet is even fun too. But only with bright summer weather indeed.
