with the changing of the seasons i’d be treated to my very own change of backdrop outside my window. summer brought with it knees kissed by the warmth of the sun and tanned shoulders, beers drunk outdoors and pimm’s. autumn a rainbow hue of coloured leaves turning from green to orange to yellow and hair-tucks under cosy scarves. spring a promise of hope, fresh air, and renewed life for blooms and buds. finally, winter the frosty mistress, a blanket of pure white snow, covering all our sins.
overlooking a dlr station was very, very convenient. we could always time when to run out to catch the next train. win! one day i came across this special carriage…
and sometimes i’d walk to the nearest tube station…
liberty – every bit a london institution as…. eton mess? you can’t miss the infamous liberty prints!
one day our friends wanted to visit the tower of london, so we shamelessly self-invited ourselves and crashed their date. they lived in the borough of tower hamlets (i think) so we scored tickets at one quid, compared to a
bajillion pounds £24.50. ONE QUID! (eveything seems like a million pounds compared to one quid).
nope, never had a problem crossing the roads in london!
and a preview to my next (and maybe final) post on london, where i show you a few of my favourite tube stations….can you guess this one? it’s elementary, my dear readers 😉
