HAPPY NEW YEAR.....

2nd January 2017

I have been to the V&A to see this exhibition...



....unfortunately these were the only photos I was allowed to take!

The items on display were AMAZING, tiny stitches and lots of gold/silver threads to enhance the work, well worth seeing. 

We also saw the 'Revolution' exhibition, also very interesting and the music on the headset evoked memories of my youth.......

.....New Years Day was very relaxed, sewing, knitting and watching films on I-player, 'A Song for Marion', the tears flowed and 'Pride' which made me laugh!! 
The rain didn't stop all day.

Today the sun was shining so went for a walk from Richmond to Kew Bridge along the river....

....I thought these clouds looked really odd...


....this building is a studio in the garden and the artist was painting as I passed....


.....house boats....


...looking back towards Richmond, so many walkers, joggers and cyclists on the path....


.....the reason for the unusual black clouds-a fire, centre of photo...


....unusual seed heads...


....this little fella must have escaped but looked quite happy....



....this is a stream to the right of the path covered in weed...


...bit chilly for camping...


....a solitary rower..


...love these old sign posts...


.....this couple seemed to be having a picnic then started fishing...


....somebody being remembered...




....Syon House across the river, brought back happy memories of my son's wedding...


....part of Kew Gardens...


.....tide out leaving the house boats stranded, luxury flats behind them.....


....I walked over 11,000 steps  then caught the bus back to Richmond.

Tomorrow I am going to spend the day with my daughter and Alba, so looking forward to it!!!!
