FRIDAY's FAVE FIVE
more participants here
1. On my way back from the English coast to Brussels, I stopped in London for the day.
On the bus taking me to the London Tower, I could see the special atmosphere of the Olympic London. Streets decorated and no private cars at all, only buses and taxis ! I wrote a post about London here.
I walked around the London Tower, and visited the Exposition of the Crown jewels. Unfortunately it was not allowed to take any pictures, anyway it was very dark inside there too. But seeing these jewels knocked me out of my shoes !
As a "professional" paparazzi, I still managed to take a picture at least of the various cases in which the jewels are carried for official ceremonies. The upper boxes are for the various crowns and to the right are the boxes for swords and other accessories ! First I zoomed from just standing outside, but as there was nobody I quickly stepped inside again to take the pictures.
Late afternoon I took the Eurostar train back to Brussels.
My cats were happy to see me, so was I, and then I tried to get used again to my normal life and .... the household !
2. Fortunately there was not much to do, not even shopping, Mr. G. (and the cleaning Lady) had taken good care of the house.
3. I had to go out to buy some plants for the garden, as I had started a rock garden, but it was too heavy for me, so our "little" gardener will do it for me in the next days.
Most of my time I spent with the photos I had taken during my holidays, to put them in the right folders and make some order in this mess.
I started to call my friends to tell them that I am back and then I spent the whole afternoon at Nicole's sitting in the warm sunshine on her huge balcony and showed her my holiday pictures. Charly the dog wasn't very interested in my photos and preferred his green bone.
And I realized that I am really back home now, because instead of having an afternoon tea I had an afternoon coffee !
