The momentous week.

Well, this is the week that I become Fifty!!!!  I know, How did that happen???

To be honest its been by the skin of my teeth, I’ve had more than my fair share of dodgy life threatening happenings but here I am and I am grateful for every single second of it.

So to celebrate we are tootling around being tourists for the week, finally getting around to doing things we have promised ourselves we will do.

We started off with a gentle walk along Westminster and took a few shots of our old favourite Monday 1 (1 of 1) Monday 2 (1 of 1) Monday 3 (1 of 1) Monday 4 (1 of 1)Big Ben.  I love the detail that you just don’t see with the naked eye whilst looking up and if you enlarge these photos the detail is astounding. Monday 5 (1 of 1)Then the object of my desires appears on the horizon. Its been a long time coming, I’ve been waiting for this trip for many a long year. Monday 6 (1 of 1)Isn’t she pretty. Monday 7 (1 of 1)One for the engineers. Monday 8 (1 of 1)And another piccie for me. I’m quite giddy by this point and yes, it was fast track all the way. Monday 9 (1 of 1)And then we are up, floating in the air, rising higher and higher and higher above London. Monday 11 (1 of 1)And so Very, Very, high above Big Ben. Monday 12 (1 of 1)The Shard in the distance. Monday 14 (1 of 1)Buckingham Palace and St James Park – couldn’t see a pelican though. Monday 15 (1 of 1)Horseguards parade, practising…   I believe its a big birthday for the Queen as well. Monday 10 (1 of 1) Monday 13 (1 of 1)Piccies of us.  And then we are back on the ground.  It was amazing, I loved it, we must do it again!!!!

After this we were in need of refreshment and we toddled off to John Lewis roof garden. It’s an absolute treat and has been furnished by the Gardening Society… , the planting is sublime and the cocktails aren’t bad either.  I’ll leave you with a few pics as I must get to bed. Monday 19 (1 of 1) Monday 17 (1 of 1) Monday 18 (1 of 1) Monday 20 (1 of 1) Monday 21 (1 of 1) Monday 22 (1 of 1)
