Happy VE Day!

Okay, this was yesterday. But I was working and when I got home celebrated with a couple drinks with the flatmate.

And when I have a couple, any motivation I had to do anything plummets.

So today I went for a walk to blow away the cobwebs, down towards St Paul’s Cathedral and through the quiet streets.

I found this pub on my walk today, just a quick shot from my gander. I will post more when my head isn’t hurting so much.

And I wanted to use this post to show my appreciation for not just the NHS and care/key workers, but also to everyone that had to fight in WW2 and contributed to the freedoms we have today. It would have been a horrible time to live through, and it really wasn’t that long ago. I feel incredibly grateful to not have had to endure that kind of suffering.

The Red Arrows did a flyby down the Thames and over Buckingham Palace, however I couldn’t see it at work sadly. On the live broadcast it flies over the city, past the skyscrapers I have posted about recently. You can see below which ones and where I am currently working/living.

Not that the picture is the most clear! Here is the video to go along with it. St Paul’s Cathedral can be seen just after this too.

 

How is everyone’s weekend? I hope you have great weather and do what you can to keep healthy and happy.

Have a great Saturday and I will speak to you all soon.

 


 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak I am somewhat limited as to what I can do in London, but I aim to post as much as I can during this time. I promise to have some great posts coming your way once this is all over as I continue to explore London.

Stay home, stay safe and happy blogging!

Emptying my mind onto the web and hoping to make sense of it. Hoping to help others going through similar struggles.

  1. Oh, I am so glad you mentioned that day! Many people do not even know it exists :(. For Russian and Finland, it is actually May 9th, so you are on the marks :). We did a zoom celebration for my Mom today. She was so happy! My daughter sang several wartime songs for her… My mom is a survivor of the Seige of Leningrad if you know what this is about.

    1. It is a shame that it isn’t well known everywhere 😦 I am pleased there were big celebrations planned here and even after the lockdown, still had a flyover. It seems like you made the day a special one, I am happy to read about it! I hope you are having a great weekend too Hettie.
