Today I am inviting you to walk with me through Rochester in Kent. A lovely historic small city. It has a beautiful Cathedral dates back to 604 AD- the second oldest in England. The castle is Norman and the 12th-century keep or stone tower, which is the castle’s most prominent feature, is one of the best preserved in England.
Please enjoy the walk with me round the Cathedral and the castle. Keep your scarf on it is very windy!
The beautifully painted organ.
In the Cathedral was a display of 3 very old books, one is 100 years older than the Magna Carta and is called Textus Roffenses. It contains a collection of Anlo Saxon Law of Aethelberht of Kent which dates back to 600AD – it is the only surviving copy of the oldest law in English.
Apparently Henry the VIII took all books from the Cathedral library at his time but left this one behind. The Lady in the Cathedral said historians still wonder why?
After all this walking – it is time for a nice cup of tea or coffee!
Thanks for joining me and I hope you enjoyed the walk!

LIFE is right now.
LIFE is at this moment.
It is NOT after your retirement.
It is NOT after some achievement.
It is NOT after you get some approval from someone..
NO. NO. NO.
Life is NOW. Don’t postpone to live. There is nothing called later.
Life is now at this moment. Just grab every opportunity that makes you feel good and live it fully. Whatever it is, don’t be afraid.
Life is right now.
Do something which makes you happy.
Enjoy your week!
Spring has truly sprung and is giving us all a spring in our steps.
I have been visiting my mum and on our walks we saw the most colourful flower displays in the parks. It is warmer and the sun is shining.
Isn’t this just beautiful,
sit with me….
…. stay a while and soak it all in….
… take a deep breath,
smell the Spring air…
and feast your eyes and your senses…
It is wonderful to rest a bit and enjoy the warm sunshine
seeing everything springing to life.
Look what someone did in their front garden.
What a lovely idea!
Today just a bit of rest and enjoyment for heart and soul!
Have a colourful and sunny day in your heart and all around you!

Over Easter, I visited the Sky Garden, the highest garden in the UK. It is on the 35th floor of a building called ” the Walkie Talkie” in London.
Security is high , just like on an airport.
It was amazing to walk around this exotic garden!
It is free for the public but still needs to be booked and only open during working time, so I was happy to get tickets in the holidays.
Well worth going when you are in London!
It was wonderful to add this day to treasured memories.
Enjoy your day and see the beauty along the road!
Spring is really here – thank you.
Isn’t that a fantastic vase at my friends house.
Enjoy your Spring!
Time flies and it is already weekend again… hurray!
We went to the Tower of London the other night to see the Ceremony of the keys which is being performed since 700 years every single day and it is open to the public to witness it. The waiting list is long and we waited 3 month for our turn. One is not allowed to take pictures. I did take some while waiting outside the gate to be let in!
It is so much fun to discover more and more of my wonderful London. So come with me.

It was very interesting and we enjoyed a pleasant and fun chat with the guide/ high ranking soldier afterwards who told us more interesting facts around the tower.
Wishing all a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
just saying I am still around.. still doing the bathroom and working hard all round.
But hey, saw this on facebook the other day.. so sweet!
So wishing you all a good night my friends!
