The Shard

Standard

I had the opportunity to go to the Shard, the highest viewing platform at the top of Western Europe’s tallest building.

We went up with a speedy elevator to level 33 , changed elevators to level 69.

There is the first viewing platform.  Then you can go 3 flights up to level 72 which is the highest level for visitors.

The sight is breathtaking and you see all London Landmarks and more.

Definitely not for people who don’t like heights.

 

 

Well worth a visit if you are in London.

It was not sunny but we still could see enough.

 As Groucho Marx says:

Shard 11 aug15 (24)

I love my London in all weather!

Foot note….

Can’t believe I did that many…..I’m rather proud! ♥

 

 

Guestpost: Danny in Germany

Standard

As promised I am showing you more of my hot adventure in Germany.

I met Petzi, my old friend who always welcomes me warmly into the house.

On the hottest day we walked around the old town of Reutlingen.

It has still remnants of the town wall in some places….. shame about the blue bins in front….

Germany aug15 (9)Germany aug15 (10)

Guess what I saw?

Reutlingen has the narrowest street in the world and this is in the Guiness Book.

We have not eaten too much and could easily get through. ( 31cm or 1 foot wide)

That was fun.  I could pose on the beam of the old house.

I saw a lovely tiny house from 1758, my mum remembers it as a shop for brooms.

Germany aug15 (19)

They have beautiful wells in the pedestrian zone and on the market place.

The church, ‘Marien Kirche’ is a lovely building too!

 

Then I met Brauni, my gran’s teddy and we caught up with the teddy news from all over the world.

I loved the garden in front of the house and played a lot in the greenery.

Too soon it was time to go home again, luckily we had the hot sunshine the whole time.

Just when we were in Stuttgart ready to fly back a big thunderstorm came and made us late for take off.

It was rather amazing to see the flashes and black sky and then soon we went up and saw the fluffy clouds which brought us into the cooler Britain.

I had a super time and enjoyed a peaceful time with my mum and gran!

 

I love flying as I can be free and not strapped into a seat like all the other passengers.

I will soon have another adventure which I will report on later.  It will be so amazing I can’t believe it myself just yet.

So until then it is bye from me and wishing you a wonderful day with joy and happiness.

Choose to be happy!

Standard

Being happy is a choice.

You can choose to be miserable or you can choose to be happy.

Sometimes, as humans we think “we got awful cards dealt our way” or “someone is out to get me”

Sadly guilty of this myself :

This is your journey.

Travel with grace and gratitude or travel with misery, the choice is yours.

The efforts are the same.

Life is trying and sometimes difficult.

Remember today, right in this very NOW moment, you can choose to wash away the sorrows of yesterday the hurts of past…….acknowledge them and release them from your heart (not easy I know) but try…..

Then send out positive energy to the universe, your guides, your angels…..

Watch quietly and see the magic begin.

Changes may be tiny you can barely see them or you may doubt them….but they are there.

A smile from a stranger, a hug from your child, a card from a friend a warm cup of coffee or maybe you were blessed with the last cookie someone saved you! :) 

All good things starting to unravel with your positive state of mind…..♥

Enjoy life- its good and bad.

Learn from the challenges….and live in this very NOW moment of peace and happiness….Namaste ♥

Meditation

Standard

Come into my garden,

close your eyes,

and join in a short meditation.

crochet6

Make yourself comfortable,

Listen to the sounds of the garden,

bees buzzing,

birds chirping,

rustling of the trees,

feel the sensation of the warm sunshine on your skin,

feel the small breeze against your cheeks,

breathe in the warm air,

gently breathe out,

feel the peace within you.

Focus on the stillness of the garden,

some background noises far away.

Let your thoughts wander,

empty your mind,

feel the stillness and peace.

Concentrate on your breath – in and out.

Feel gratitude for this peaceful moment you can enjoy.

***

Slowly start wiggling your toes,

Move your fingers,

open your eyes,

stretch your arms and back,

ready to go back to a relaxed and wonderful day!

***
