Sneak peek – craft space

My craft space is limited, it’s lucky that my main craft is embroidery, as that doesn’t take up much space (most of the time). I’ve lived in this flat for 15 years now (parents with small children be warned, moving to a tiny flat because it’s in a catchment area for a good school, with…

March 2019 photos

There’s been a dearth of good photos this month, despite going on quite a few walks. I did some more stages of the London Loop, the top photo being a bench by the River Colne, near Iver, which is on the route. And this one is from Ham Lands, which is not on the London…

February 2019 photos

This month is all about the walks, as usual, with photos from sections 9 and 10 of the London Loop (Bushy Park, Hounslow Heath, the River Crane and Cranford Park) …. …. plus a walk in Richmond Park (which included a glimpse of a Richmond Park ‘hot duck‘).

January 2019 photos – aka the Shoreditch Street Art Post

January has not been that photogenic for me, however we did go and have a look at the street art in Shoreditch, as S had recently been on a school art trip to the area and she wanted to share what she’d learnt. Chewing gum art outside Old Street station. A commissioned piece by Camille…

December 2018 photos

At the beginning of the month I spent quite a bit of time in the Twickenham area, I know, I’m really selling the area with the above photo. With time to kill, on one of the days I was there, I went on the Three Rivers Walk (if you do this walk, don’t be fooled by…

November 2018 photos

This month’s photos are all from Richmond Park, one walk on a sunny day and one on a misty day. I can be a bit fickle about Richmond Park, I’ve walked it for years, so often crave somewhere new but sometimes, like this month, it’s really good to walk familiar paths and besides, it’s only…

October 2018 photos

Other than a walk on the Thames Path, this month I’ve photographed mainly the cat that’s not my cat. – and Richmond Park, which is looking glorious at the moment.

A day out in tweets

We had a nice day out today, I’ve just tweeted on my personal account about it and now I’m too tired to write anymore, so I thought I’d just link to the tweets, there’s some stuff that we did today, that I would very enthusiastically recommend, others not so. Saw this today and it is so…

Thames Path South – section 3c

We did the next bit of section 3 on the south side of the Thames Path today, Greenwich to Thames Barrier. It was considerably nicer weather than when we did sections 3a and b, so some photos. Excuse the mainly black and white shots, the area felt very much a black and white area, when…

September 2018 photos

Aside from the photos from my two canal walks, my only real photos of note this month were from the London Design Festival. Above is an installation that was in Trafalgar Square, which I particularly liked. I wonder if the designer was particularly banking on how grey London can get because the orange of the…
