Bloomsbury: Books About Town

Early last week, we did our fourth (and final) Books About Town trail in London. This one was around the Bloomsbury area, running from Long Acre up to Tavistock Place. I’ve really enjoyed doing these trails, especially as I got to see parts of London I hadn’t seen before. Photos of the other book bench trails: Greenwich, Riverside and The City. Many thanks for visiting!

The City: Books About Town

Amazingly, I had the energy to do another book bench trail at the beginning of this week. I managed to complete the City Trail of Books About Town. This is the third one I’ve done, following the Greenwich and Riverside trails. Thank you for visiting :)

Riverside: Books About Town

End of last week, we did the Riverside Trail, part of Books About Town. We did the Greenwich Trail the other week. This time we managed to get all of them which was rather wonderful! There is a lot going on around this part of London at the moment…two that stood out for me…Festival of Love at South Bank and the Matisse Cut Outs exhibition at the Tate Modern (which I really want to see). As always, thank you for visiting :)

GoGo Gorillas Norwich 2013

This is rather long overdue blog post! Last August, the kids and I took a day trip to Norwich. Despite having had holidays in Norfolk in the past, I had never visited the county city. An added attraction was the GoGo Gorilla art trail which was taking place in Norfolk during the summer.

Mini Art Journals

Over the last few months, I have been making little art journals, following a tutorial by Jennibellie. These mini journals are essentially hand decorated painted paper with collage, doodles and other embellishments.

Greenwich: Books About Town

Earlier this week, we went into Greenwich to seek out book benches…Books About Town is a set of four trails in London that feature bench sculptures shaped as open books. We got to see almost all of them at Greenwich…the last one was just too far for my little legs and sore feet. Enjoy the photos…I’m planning the next one to do :)

Curly Tree Paintings

Whilst I wait for my energy levels get better, I have been doing quite a bit of art in the last week or so. Something I love painting are curly trees, inspired/influenced by Gustav Klimt.

A little trip to Clacton-on-Sea

It has been a while since I’ve done a day trip, mainly because I have been very tired. But last Monday myself, my husband and my MacMillan nurse decided that it was time for me to have a proper break from my current chemotherapy regime, which made me very happy.
