Week 26 – 45. Underneath


We visited RAF Hendon this week and this is one of the aircraft we saw from ‘underneath’. It was a good experience and we saw many planes of all ages. The displays and write up were very interesting. The food was good too. We went by coach so it was a relaxing day for my husband too. RAF Hendon brings together planes long since gone and gives a comprehensive history of aviation.

Here is a link for anyone interested in finding more about the Museum

I was aware for the first time just how the mothers and wives must have felt when their loved ones were away in the war and how much the airmen sacrificed for our freedom. I wondered how the airmen coped after the war with the dreadful things they had to take part in and what they endured. And indeed how our forces still give so much.


Week 25 – 41.The Night Sky


It was my birthday this week, which I share with our younger son. He asked me what I wanted to do and I asked him to take me up to London to do some night shooting. This was the best of a bad job but we had so much fun and it broke the ice for further learning. I did some light trails too. This was taken from the bridge that takes you to the Embankment tube station. His girlfriend and my husband came too so it was a good opportunity to get to know her and share a pizza too



Week 24 -17. Misplaced/lost/missing piece


Why is it that when you take the Christmas decorations down, no matter how hard you check, there is always one piece that gets left behind? You only discover it, of course, when you have put the decorations away in the loft for next year!!

This year, we left the Santa Claus costume for the wine bottle, which one of our daughters gave us for Christmas, behind. What have you left behind this year?
