When I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer over 3 years ago, I started keeping a journal. Initially, it was just intended to record any side effects from treatment, but over time it became much more than that.
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!
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 🙂
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.
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 🙂
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.
Last week, I took a little trip over to London to take some photos of street art. I spent the morning at Leake Street Tunnel; this tunnel is about 300 metres long and runs under the platforms and tracks of Waterloo station. It was initially created during the “Cans Festival” organised by Banksy in 2008, and is now a dedicated area for street artists to display their work. The artwork is forever changing so the art I photographed that day may have already gone today!
Last August, I took a trip to Fulham. It was the first time I had been to Fulham for many years and I specifically explored the Putney Bridge end of Fulham as that was where I used to live. This August, I returned to Fulham, with my friends Lesley and James, and this time we aimed to explore the Fulham Broadway area. Again a beautiful summer’s day, but my oh my, it has really changed around there…parts of it I didn’t recognise! Be warned…there are a lot of images in this post!
