Happy Fathers day to all daddies. My nephew pictured below, is dad to the two little girls. Also in the photo is my sister on the left, and my late brothers wife. We all met up yesterday for a day out in Birmingham. It was a very long day for me, I left home at 7.15 am to drive to my sisters house, then we got a taxi to the station and finished the journey by train. After walking for miles, we got the train back, and before I left to drive home I met up with Louise. It was lovely to meet her, she dropped everything at short notice and picked me up at the station, and we went for a drink at a pub I used to frequent many years ago. The Sump on the side of the River Trent made a nice setting to sit in the sun and have a natter. I managed to get a quick visit in to Uncle and Aunt, before I set off for home, arriving 15 minutes before midnight. I was pretty shattered by then.
S'funny but I don't like the inside of shopping centre's, but I do like the outside. Modern architecture fascinates me, especially when it is so innovative. I wonder about the creative mind that comes up with these ideas.
A little bit of the old has been left here with this church.
Waterstones bookstore is inside this beautiful old building.
I'm having an easy day today, pottering, sewing, bimbling, reflecting, relaxing. I hope your day is enjoyable.
