London.

 

 

Last week I was in London again with my granddaughters for a couple of days. The weather wasn’t very good , we had rain, lots of it,  so the only thing we did was shop . We did the sightseeing tour last year so nothing was really lost.:))) And for teenage girls there is nothing better than shopping as far as I know.:))

I didn’t make many photo’s because of the rain but I did make  a few of the beautiful buildings, the many many busses and the crowds.

Gezellig hoor om met je kleindochters naar Londen te gaan. Wel jammer van het weer, als de zon schijnt doet het zo anders aan. Leuk om op jouw foto's beelden te herkennen van toen wij er zelf waren.

Een fijne week, Riet! Liefs, Ingrid

Ohhhh heerlijk lieve Rietje, weer
een aantal dagen naar Londen.
Weet wel zeker dat de meisjes dat winkelen het allerleukste vinden.
Wel jammer dat het weer niet zo
aangenaam was.

Je foto's vind ik echt SUPER!!!
Fantastisch al die gigantische
bouwwerken, je kijkt je ogen uit
daar. En dan de kleuren van de
bussen en de etalage met die
zeer in het oog springende blauwe
auto, zo mooi!!!

Kan me voorstellen dat je
helemaal kapot bent na een paar
dagen met je kleindochters die
natuurlijk al rennende van de ene
winkel de ander in rennen, hihi.

Heb je zelf ook nog iets leuks
aangeschaft???

Geniet nog mar even heerlijk na
van deze dagen en ik wens je een
fijne nieuwe week toe.....

Veel liefs,
Josephine

Jammer dat het ook daar op dat moment regenachtig weer was. Jullie zullen je best wel vermaakt hebben, maar een zonnetje maakt alles net wat mooier en vriendelijker.

Hello dear Riet! What wonderful photos of your trip to London with your G-daughters. I love these shots from the street of the grand buildings there. Of course, I can imagine that the shopping was pretty wonderful too :) One of my favorite things to do too.
sending love...

Hi Riet,

I love that window display in TH store! Thanks for sharing today.

Have a Happy Blue Monday!

I suppose it rains a lot in London. The shops look very elegant, and I like the cobblestone? streets, it looks so inviting.

Madelief said...

Je kleindochters boffen maar met zo'n oma als jij Riet! Gezellig dat je weer met ze naar Londen bent geweest. Jammer dat het weer niet meezat, maar gelukkig waren er genoeg mooie winkels waar jullie konden schuilen :-)

Ik wens je een fijne week toe!

Liefs van Madelief x

There's no shortage of shops in London. I see Regent Street was your favourite.

It was surprising to see that car in the store window. It certainly is an attention getter.
