We had a lovely few days in London!
We spent half our time shopping, and half ‘doing’ art galleries! We started Tuesday afternoon at the National Portrait Gallery and seeing the Laura Knight exhibition. She was an incredibly talented lady – I enjoyed all of her work.
There is a new occupant of the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square too –
So, Wednesday we went to the Tate to see the Lowry exhibition. Nice – but I didn’t think anything was spectacular though. Along with entry to Lowry, we got entry to see Patrick Caufield too. Not someone I was familiar with, but some of his work blew me away! Stunning stuff! I was very very impressed and it certainly made up for being disappointed at Lowry!
Wednesday was also the day I rang the Radiographers at my hospital to see if they could give me some tips on eating and drinking. It is really painful to do either and I just eat and drink tiny amounts. The doc I spoke to said I should go to the nearest hospital and get admitted! The ‘do not pass go’ type instruction was ignored – sorry Doc! No way I’m spending time in hospital in London. I bought water and started sipping.
And went shopping!
Mmm! How much?!?
Fed some squirrels too!
Thursday we had just half a day – we did some wandering, had cake at the National Gallery and found Harrods! They do great chocolate – which I bought (naturally!) for when I can eat again.
Do you take eating and drinking for granted? I used to! My advice – don’t! Enjoy every mouthful – you should appreciate this amazing opportunity to refuel. I can’t wait to get a bit better and be able to eat more than one morsel at a time and drink a whole cup of tea! 🙂
One last picture – we happened upon the changing of the guard on the way to Trafalgar Square – it was raining. Poor guys – they looked so shiny!
Back home and back into a routine now. Have a superb Saturday!
