June catch-up

June was a busy month for both of us. Here's what happened:

  • My Parents visited for a weekend. We went to Greenwich, as Admiral Nelson is one of Dad's heroes and he wanted to see Nelson's jacket in the Maritime Museum. On the Sunday, we visited the Wetlands Centre, which is just amazing. It was a glorious day and the ducks etc were out in full force.
  • We got involved in the Story of London festival by taking full advantage of their Living History weekend. On the Saturday, we celebrated the marriage of Henry VIII and Katherine Parr at Hampton Court with a picnic and fireworks. On the Sunday, we celebrated Britain's victory at the Battle of Waterloo at Apsley House. The highlight was a re-enactment of the Battle using vegetables - very funny indeed!
  • I started my new job at work. It all seems good. Much busier than the old one and a lot more challenging too. Should be a good way to spend my last few months there.
