Holiday: 22 b

There is something quite amazing about an aeroplane. The way it can turn seemingly clever people into unthinking mass of cats in need of herding. Last time we were held up by weather. Stairrods of rain to be precise. It led to a 90 minute delay and a woman who had no idea she couldn’t […]

Holiday: 21 & 22

Windows decided to update earlier in the week. I now cannot access the internet from my computer. Livid is not the word for my reaction to this. Widowhood of Spiders is on the cloud. I can get to that from other devices but I prefer to type on the Pc. Less chance of erroneous full […]

Holiday: 20

Friday was a day for good news. OH finished his electrical job early and we headed to the city of London cemetery finding the graves, not only two of the first 3 policeman to be killed in the line of duty – Sgts Tucker and Bentley at Houndsditch – but also Dame Anna Neagle and […]

Strangely the overcast sky was condusive to both activities. I didn’t want to venture out, in case it rained; and I kept a more vigilant […]

The beer festival at the 3 Daws pub in Gravesend on Saturday was good. Both for the range and quality of the beers on offer and for the quality of the company.  It is always good to spend time with friends and catch up. The weather was reasonable. It did rain: splendidly. But fortunately it […]

Cee’s Which Way photo challenge (week 3)

We’ve had some unusual skies in the South East of England. Very much the stuff of folklore. You know the one- Red sky at night, shepherd’s delight, Red sky at morning, Shepherd’s warning. These photos were shot on my commute to work. I was on the slip lane at Boreham Services, Chelmsford – going nowhere […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Graceful

I bumped into this chap, resting in Wrexham, this summer. He seemed so peaceful; so graceful. I couldn’t pass by without taking a snap. For further takes on this challenge Graceful
