This is the Olympic Aquatic Centre which has a funny shape. My mum and her sister went swimming in there too and they loved it. Mum wants to go again soon, she so loved the long 50 m lanes…. and the hairdryers… apparently. 🙂

Then we went with the cable car over the Thames, I loved the view, I could almost see my house from there!

You can see the famous Dome behind me where they filmed a scene of a James Bond Film once.

All ended with a wonderful glass of Champagne with High Tea and the best view from the 42nd floor of a building in the middle of London!

Danny’s Holidays Part One

Standard

You all know me as the bear who went to Spain last year to meet Manny from California. Well, Manny has run away to China, hope he enjoys it.

I had a lovely holiday here in London with my mum and her sister. I saw many places I have never seen before. I was so lucky and happy  that I could go with them.

First we went to Chislehurst Cave that is where that photo was taken and I didn’t remember.

A man made cave from the Saxons then the Romans extended it for finding flint and the it was used in the 2nd World War for 50 000 people. It was rather cold and so many ways you could easily get lost so we had to follow the guide with the lamp as there was no light.

She did say “every last Thursday of the month they look for lost tourists”, but I didn’t want to stay that long…..

Then we had a picnic in a park just in time as the heaven opened with lightning and thunder.

We visited Danson House which was a Georgian house and had a Victorian kitchen where I had some fun…. as you can see:

Well I was allowed to go and sit anywhere yay!

After that my mum went with her visitors to Buckingham Palace. I wasn’t allowed in there…. it was rather posh my mum said and she thoroughly enjoyed it ( specially the cake with the crown) , she brought some pictures back to show us.

Well enough for today…. I hope you enjoyed the little tour as much as I enjoyed all the travels.

Soon more from me!

See you soon!

My dream come true!

Standard

Yes, another dream came true.

One of my dreams always was to possess a hammock, ( in between 2 palm trees ideally)

Since I don’t live in a palm tree country… and could’t find any on Amazon 🙂  I had to improvise

I did find a lovely hammock with a stand.

I have changed my tiny garden to make it a bit nicer, and with the sunshine in August I can lie in my hammock close my eyes and I am in heaven… well where ever I like to be.

relax1this is not mine….not my garden… 🙂 wished it was…

Books to sit on!

Standard

London has got a lovely idea about books. We discovered some book – benches at our day out yesterday!

There are 50 benches looking like open books all around London in 4 different trails. We found 3 benches. They look amazing.

All benches will be there for the Summer until 15th September.

The 50 BookBench sculptures will be sold at public auction on 7 October 2014 at an exclusive event at the Southbank Centre.
All proceeds will go to the National Literacy Trust, a charity dedicated to raising the literacy levels of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.
