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!

Weekend reflections at the V and A

This is the courtyard of the Victoria and Albert Museum in London on a very wet afternoon this week. The Museum is said to be the world's largest museum of art and design with a collection of over 4 and a half million objects.


It is not just the inside of the Museum that I like to see but also the decorations on the outside.
