It has become a bit of a tradition on New Years day Dave and I take a trip into London have a stroll along the south bank and have lunch! Last year we had to give it a miss, I wasn't very well. I was waiting to have my gall bladder removed and I had a few complications with my liver. Thinking back I was really feeling quite awful all over the Christmas. This Christmas was so different, I feel so much better. I wasn't able to have the operation until March and not in the hospital where it was originally planned to have it as they don't have the specialist aftercare facilities which in the end I didn't need, thank goodness. All that is behind me now and I'm looking forward to a great 2010. 2009 wasn't all bad, I completed my certificate in City and Guilds Embroidery, I've joined a new Quilting Group and also I've helped form a new Embroidery Group Aqua-8, 2010 is going to be a busy and creative time! I plan to blog a lot more, which is why I'm blogging today! I'm not making any new years resolutions as I always break them after the first week, and it's always the same ones anyway lose weight, not easy when you are weak where food is concerned, but I have that sorted, I'm going to the gym 3 times a week and that will not change! Anyway back to what I was saying at the beginning our trip to London today we went to Butlers Wharf, we haven't been there for quite a few years, the weather was bright but very cold, we didn't do much strolling but did have a really nice lunch in Brown's then another stroll, then back to the car and home into the warm, a cup of coffee and my blog. Here are a few of the photo's taken today!

These were once warehouses but are now expensive apartments.

The Tower of London, high tide so Traitors Gate is just visible!
