Shoreham Airshow 2007
Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.


Date: 6th September 2014

I have absolutely no desire to live in London or any other big city but have often said if I had the money I'd love a 'pad' in London so that I could attend theatre, ballet, museums, talks etc. without having the constant threat of missing the last train.

Having spent a long weekend in Bermondsey in the flat which my Parisien friends had swapped with their home in Provence, I have to say that a place in this area would be lovely.  The whole waterfront has come alive with the warehouses being turned into posh apartments and the river frontage studded with trendy restaurants and coffee bars.  It is also so conveniently placed.  We walked from the Bermondsey flat to the Tower of London and one is within easy reach of tube stations and bus routes.

I've posted a photo of something I found fascinating - these Thames barges with fully grown trees on deck!!  Well, the English are regarded as a nation of eccentrics aren't we!
