I visited London on Wednesday and chanced upon this 'Shot-Put' sculpture as part of the Olympic celebrations.
The news reports the previous evening were saying how quiet London was but that wasn't my experience walking along the embankment near Westminster.
There were carousel rides,
candy floss sellers,
and the lion on Westminster Bridge was surveying all the crowds.
Long queues for the London Eye (which I still haven't been on),
and lots of people photographing and admiring our beautiful 'Big Ben'
and of course it wouldn't have been London without the festive bunting!
Unfortunately my visit to London was to attend an appointment to plan my Radiotherapy treatment which starts in 2 weeks time. I'm pleased to say that the results from my last op show that my breast cancer hasn't spread to my lymph nodes but I now have to undergo 5 weeks of Radiotherapy travelling up to London everyday (weekends off for good behaviour). I'm planning to make the most of the next few weeks before it starts and then if I feel okay use my visits to London to plan some days out with my children while they are still on their summer holidays.
This weekend I'm planning to do some sewing as they are away for a few days camping (nice quiet house)!
I hope you all have a lovely weekend and manage to fit in some time to relax.
