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!

St Paul's Cathedral









Tower Bridge









The skating rink at Somerset House












The London Eye and Big Ben


And finally Trafalgar Square with its Norwegian Christmas tree (an annual present from Oslo) taking centre stage.

  1. Lovely. Not sure about the gift from Oslo though. Maybe better to see in situ.

  11. I want to be there so badly I can taste it. How I love London. The only ornaments on my tree are the woolen ones I would bring back each time I would visit. I recognize your photos and they are wonderful. Thanks for taking me down Memory Lane this almost night before Christmas. genie

  17. London must be a beautiful city this time of year. I remember one year back in the '70s when they decorated it with lasers - I'll have to see if I have any photos of that. Merry Christmas!
