Have a great trip catching up with old friends DD


Berlin news awful.  Went to that market a few times in 2013 - one of the prettiest.  Such pointless violence.


Back from a great couple of days in London - cracking meal out last night, and muchwandering today in the sunshine.  Went to the new Design museum - very good.  Lots on sustainability and the challenges of climate change, so I was all eyes and ears.

Very foggy here - can't see across the garden 


Decorating our tree today - rest of the house was done last week, but we have saved the tree so Chicklet can join in.


One of the nursing homes we visited yesterday was perfect, so thats Dad sorted when he comes out of hospital.  As well as being clean and friendly, it has views over Southampton water so he can watch the boats going too and fro (keen sailor, my Dad).....he's already requested that his binoculars are added to his packing list.  So happy that things are falling in to place

None of my others are flowering GD - think this one is being warmed up on account of it being surrounded by concrete
