London Lido’s, London walks, London in the Summer…….August 2014



I think it is called a ‘staycation’…….I LOVE IT and this is official……London in the summer is WONDERFUL!

There are a number of Lido’s in London and we tried to get to all of them.

Still a few to go, but the weather was great, and fun was had by all.

Also, the Capital ring is proving to be a great experience.

(It has only felt like the 1979 film ‘The Warriors’ once!!)

We started at Kenton and have been going clockwise and the best stage, so far, has been from Stoke Newington to Hackney Wick.

The kids are Instagramming and taking pics like mad, which can’t be a bad thing.

Modern Farmer, Elderly people and The London Ring…….July 2014


I’m writing this halfway through September…….oops……. and have just received my copy of Modern Farmer magazine in the post, which as always, is beautifully designed and has great articles.

It really does look great and I have made the cover again, which is nice!

It also means that I can post up some of the other shots I took of cows at the Three Counties Show. My favourite is the Highland cow. Shaggy and proud!

A few more photos for AGE UK Kingston, of visitors to their day centre. I do enjoy taking photographs for them and a pleasant day was spent chatting to some real characters and reminiscing about their old friends.

Oh, and Kevin at Mencap told me about this 80 mile walk around London! It is in 15 sections and is great. It takes you to parts of london you might never have gone to. The kids are loving it and we have had friends joining us on different sections. Still got another 10 sections to go though…….
