A few hours with 3 Days in London!

Posted on December 30, 2015 by Sioux under General

  My sister, Cindy Eve has a blog site called 3 Days in London http://3daysinlondon.info/ and if ever you want to know anything at all about London, she is the one to ask! She has strolled the streets of London countless times, knows almost every nook and cranny there is to know – some tourist […]

Santa Claus has run through the town

Posted on by Sioux under General

  The day after our London town outing, we strolled back alongside the Thames heading again for Tower Bridge, this time for the start of the Santa in the City Race, in which I was a participant! The green grass in front of Tower Bridge looked rather festive with the many Santas, all ready waiting […]

Walk about in London town

Posted on December 28, 2015 by Sioux under General

  Walking around London, for nigh on 8 hours is not for the faint of heart! We took the train from Broadstairs to Kings Cross, a 2 hour journey, with one change, and walked around central London until very late. The enormous Christmas tree at St Pancras station, made entirely of fluffy toys, was the centre of […]

Family ties….

  With some time to spare before I set off on my first job as a live-in carer, I went to visit Paul’s brother and his girlfriend. They live in a lovely little place in Lingfield and I was to have the spare room for the night.   Good to be able to visit in their […]

Great Christmas Pudding race

  The first stop of our day out in London was the very popular Covent Gardens for the 35th Great Christmas Pudding Race. A team-of-6 relay race, run in order to raise funds for cancer research, it is a festive day for all – participants and onlookers. After some Zumba style dance moves to warm […]

  We meandered along the sandy shore enroute to Ramsgate, stepping over smooth round pebbles and past towering white cliffs, now & then looking up to see the vapour trails left by airplanes way above our heads. The sound of gently lapping waves and seagulls screeching overhead drifted along the easy breeze, caressing our ears […]

If walls and cobbles could talk

Posted on December 14, 2015 by Sioux under General

  Morning broke with beautiful blue skies, and taking full advantage of the clear weather, we headed out for the walk from Broadstairs to Ramsgate, and what a beautiful walk it was too.   Taking the long way round, we went up through Broadstairs town, passing many old yet well cared for buildings and churches […]

Not quite the YMCA…..

Posted on December 7, 2015 by Sioux under Green Door

  As we had had a full day of walk-about in London on Saturday and I had to be at Tower Bridge by 10am on Sunday morning to collect my santa suit, we decided that sleeping at the YHA on Saturday night would be the ideal as it was a pleasant 20 minute walk along […]
