I took this picture of one of the fountains in London's Regent's Park last weekend.
I think it's jut right for today's prompt, 'Water'.

London, baby!

Kerry and I had a lovely weekend in London, with the Saturday being spent at the wedding blessing and party of Ciaran and Peta, in Ealing and Chiswick.

At Aberdeen railway station, just about to catch the train to London.

Mmmmmm - breakfast! We actually got through one bottle of Buck's Fizz and two other bottles of bubbly on the way down!

King's Cross Tube, en route to our hotel.

Checking in ....

In the Cambridge Bar, beside The Palace Theatre, just before we went to see 'Pricilla, Queen of the Desert'. Fabulous show!!!!

Back at the hotel. I managed to catch both of us (by accident!) in this shot.

Next morning, we had a wonderful stroll down the road past Mme. Tussaud's and the old Planetarium, up Baker Street and then back to the hotel through Regent's Park. What a great way to spend a Saturday morning in London. It was fabulous.

In the afternoon, we made our way to Ealing Abbey for the blessing.

Followed by a reception at The Union in Chiswick. The weather was glorious, as you can see!

Next day, we only had a few hours till we caught the train home, so we spent them at the British Museum, of course!

On the train back to good old Scotland!

We had a great weekend and we are planning another one sometime next year, but with Jodie too! :-)


Royal Wedding Tea Party

Kerry and Simon held a wee Royal Wedding Tea Party to celebrate the marriage of Wills and Kate. We wore hats and tiaras and we even had tea from a proper china teapot, cups and saucers - with cupcakes served onb a china cake stand!


Easter is long gone, but I didn't blog it, so here are some pics from our Easter Egg Hunt and buffet!


Our Space and Sports Day!

I am ashamed to admit that I haven't played along with Our Space for weeks and weeks, but here is my shot for today's prompt, which is 'Monochrome'.

Today was sports day at my three granddaughters' school. Saffron won her skipping race for the second year in a row - but I think they all had fun!

I shall be trying to upload a bit of a photo catch-up over the next few days!
