Today’s guest picture comes from regular reader Anne who has been to see Bamburgh Castle on the east coast.
We are still in London and Mrs Tootlepedal and I started the day with the very good news that we had become grandparents again as our daughter Annie and her partner Joe had become the proud parents of a lovely daughter.
It was our privilege to go to see the new baby and her parents in hospital in the afternoon. All three were amazingly well. We were amazingly proud of them.
After considering all the other possible contenders for the title, we could clearly see that the new arrival was now without question the world’s greatest baby.
That was the main and most important part of the day.
We had some time to kill in the morning before the hospital visit so we strolled through Parliament Hill Fields up to Kenwood for a coffee and scone. It was a fine morning with lots to see…
… including Mr Grumpy’s London cousin…
…a bogus bridge which is just a flat panel….
… the house itself…
… and some wildlife.
In the evening my stepmother Patricia kindly took us out for a meal and this rounded off a momentous day.
In the absence of a flying bird, this view of a canal in the heart of London will have to do.
Note; TWGB has yet to be officially named. We shall go and see her again tomorrow.
