Particularly Happy Moments

  • Morning cup of tea in the kitchen with the doors open onto the sunny garden.
  • A really NICE coffee, with a good mellow taste and good consistency at the right temperature, sitting on the grass in Green Park on a sunny day and feeling relaxed.
  • Watching the women's walking race as they hurtled past on The Mall – inspires one to get fit.
  • Walking through the lovely green Victoria Embankment Gardens.
  • A lime & soda and a loo break in the pub... any pub.
  • The front seat upstairs on the double-decker red bus from Waterloo Bridge, along Fleet Street, past St Pauls, up past The Angel and into Highbury. What a view of London!
