liberty mini quilt …

I mentioned a few days back how much I enjoyed visiting Liberty of London while on our recent holiday to the UK. I bought two packets of 2 ½ inch squares with the thought that I would make some hexagons with these very precious and beautiful fabrics. After some online research, I found a cute […]

london trip, day 7 & 8 …

For our last full day of ‘touristing’ in London, Day 7, we hired a car and drove east to Canterbury to visit the Cathedral which dominates the skyline in this part of the country. We were very brave to tackle London traffic on a holiday weekend, in retrospect. The man is a very competent driver, […]

london trip, day 6 …

Day 6 we spent back in London. So much to see, so little time. We caught the tube to Westminster Station after breakfast, and spent the day touring Westminster Abbey and Westminster Palace.

Day 4 & 5 were the highlights of the trip for me … we ventured out of London for two days into the Cotswolds, travelling west of London, and staying in a country hotel. We went on a Rabbies tour, which I recommend, as there were only 16 on our bus, which meant we enjoyed […]

So we are at Day 3, and wow, my feet still hurt thinking about Day 3! We walked over 16 kms, and visited The London Tower and the British Museum, and really, we could have spent a whole week in just the museum. I can sense how my energy levels were going during the day […]

london trip, day 2 …

So here we are at the beginning of Day 2 … what do you think would be the quickest/best way to get an overview of the highlights of London? Why, catch a double-decker red London bus, and see the sights! (Ok, so our bus was blue, but it was a double-decker!) [photo from here] Just […]

london trip, day 1 …

You may have wondered why things have been a little quiet around my little blog home lately … I’ve just got back from a 10 day trip to London, and I thought I might spend the next few days sharing my visit with you. If you are wondering, it takes roughly 25 hours of travelling […]
