Heading back home in the pouring rain.

Safely back home. Still tired even after a good night’s sleep!

Our souvenirs from the trip are unpacked. This one on our mantle piece was from a little gallery in Mousehole.

We went to Hampton Court palace today. Home of King Henry VIII, it was grand and opulent.

The well maintained gardens were also beautiful.

Back in our bubble in Sloane Square this afternoon. It was all very pleasant.

We grabbed some lunch and sat on the grass in the sunshine.

We logged on to church this morning. I still can’t quite get used to it.

I know it’s now the new normal, but I do miss meeting with people.

Great talk today. A reminder to take God’s blessings and bless others. We were encouraged not to selfishly keep good things for ourselves, but to share it!

Stopped by a local café while I waited for my hairdressers to open their salon.

Ordered a cappuccino and this cute cup came my way. Their giant cinnamon scroll also looked delicious.

Spent the morning relaxing and the afternoon in a chair getting my hair done. I didn’t see my family until the late afternoon.

Got to love holidays.

A beautiful grey London day. We took a walk to the next suburb to get food for dinner.

It’s a quiet ordinary day. We didn’t go anywhere. We had no plans. We just mooched around at home and relaxed.

It was a nice day.

  1. Beautiful photos–and the sweetest souvenir I’ve ever seen. Looked like you enjoyed your holidays. And *same* as for virtual church. The only good thing is that I get to snuggle with my boys on the couch while we celebrate mass–but I really miss the real thing. I need a good gray (or grey) day with no work. I’ve been swamped and not keeping up with the blogging. Had to stop by here, though!

    1. Rebecca! It is always lovely to see you! Thank you for dropping by. We did enjoy our holiday. Sadly it is almost over. Ha! Thank you for enjoying our souvenir. Our son has enjoyed toying with the little boat. I hope work eases up for you soon too!! 😁

  2. I visited Hampton Court Palace when I was 8 years old.

    I remember in the souvenir shop there was a doll of a very fat looking Henry VIII that I asked my dad to buy for me.

    My dad said we only had so much room for souvenirs in our suitcase and the fat Henry probably couldn’t fit.
