Party time

Today’s guest picture, like yesterday’s comes from Venetia and Mary’s recent canal walk. This one was taken by Venetia.

It was our daughter Annie’s birthday today so in the morning we caught a bus from Kentish Town where we are staying with my hospitable sisters and sat on the top deck admiring the sights until we crossed the river…

…and ended up an hour later safely in South London. The bus is a good deal slower than the underground railway but offers much better views!

Friends and family….

… gathered with Annie and Joe to celebrate the occasion. We were companionably seated round a large table where we had lunch.

Conversation was lively and Evie was the cynosure of every eye.

(Evie is shy and does not have an internet presence as yet)

After the party, we went back to Annie and Joe’s for a while and then took the bus back home again.

The gathering darkness curtailed the views but I liked this sign near the Houses of Parliament which is a reminder of more civic minded times in the past.

And the Christmas lights in Regent Street were very cheerful.

We were glad that we were on the bus and not on the pavements as they were very crowded with shoppers and walking up the street would have been a hard task.

The flying bird of the day was made by Mrs Tootlepedal yesterday. It tasted even better than it looked.

  1. That cake looks simply scrummy, as Mary Berry would say, and the lights over the street are spectacular.

    I was so distracted by your height in tomorrow’s photo that I forgot to comment on the lovely mother daughter photo and the bright fall foliage!
