A couple of weekends ago .. i travelled to

London to finally meet a blogger and facebook

friend Tracey

Aside from going shopping ;o) We went to a park

which was in the middle of the area she lived in

called The Rookery , quite an unexpexted piece of gardens

in a built up area of a big city .

Just a few pictures are below ;o)

Tracey taking a photo of me while i was taking

a photo of her !!

Both of us ;o)

Taken by Tracey ..

Although i`m not keen on flying .. and the flight was

less than an hour , on my way back

it was a beautiful day , 19.000 miles up in the air .

To see a sight like this from my window seat , was

something i will never forget .. breathtaking

and magical !

It was a lovely trip away for a few days

and i hope to visit Tracey again in the near future ,

and it was lovely to finally meet you in the flesh !! ;o)


Here are a few select photo`s from our

couple of days away , which seem so long ago now !

View out to sea from the Northumberland coast

We visited a couple of places , this is Cragside .

The first house to have hydro electricity installed

and built in 1863 .

View of the house taken from the iron bridge

my arty shot of the bridge ;o)

You could take photo`s inside .. as long as no flash was used.

Just one of the many rooms ..

and the other part of the same room with a magnificent marble fireplace

and a places to sit inside .. one of the most beautiful things

i have ever seen !

Next day was Parceval Hall gardens .. the house was out of bounds

to the public .. but the gardens were so well maintained and beautiful ..

And with a view like this from the house .. who wouldn`t

want to live there !! ??

just one of the many plants in the gorgeous garden ..

And it seems everywhere we go .. we see a robin !!

And this is the leather sofa i fell in love with

at our hotel ;o)

Thanks for popping by .. to see my more random postings

on here lately ;o)

I am currently looking after my FIL more so now ..

He was sent home from the hospital earlier this week ..

His cancer has spread dramatically and well .. to tell

the truth , it`s basically to die at home .. that`s his wish .

We`re not sure how long he`s got .. so i know you`ll understand

my absence fron here ...
