Thanks for popping in. Bye Bye Brooklyn, hello Crowborough! Back in Blighty and back to work! Getting set for the Clarity Sunday TV show today. Really enjoyed getting with my hands today, and making a plan for the 3-5pm show on Create & Craft.
The week away, visiting Grace in New York, was brilliant. Busy, action packed and very interesting at so many levels! They say a change is as good as a rest, and I certainly feel refreshed. From a musical on Broadway to walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, I’ve got so many new experiences, new memories and new things to think about. Which is a good thing, because I really was feeling starved of stimulus after over 2 years of hanging out in the loft above the garage !! You understand, I’m sure.
How’s this for a view from your bedroom window?
Took a few pictures, although I have to say I was enjoying properly being in the moments as they came along, so I rather neglected taking snapshots. Never mind. Dave will share his pics with me. And since we were pretty much joined at the hip the whole time, that’ll do donkey! He‘s takes super shots too; he has the eye. Got several interesting blogs to share with you over the coming week or so.
The place is oozing with art. Everywhere you look. Street art. Magnificent murals! We walked about 20,000 steps a day, and I would have kept going but for the plates of meat !! (feet!)
Brooklyn is brilliant. I could live in Cobble Hill for sure! Grace lives 10 minutes away from there, right by the Brooklyn Bridge, on the edge of the DUMBO area. Now what do you think when I say DUMBO? I know. An Elephant with huge ears, right? Nope. Get ready to learn something new!
Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass
See the Empire State Building through the arches? Underneath the Overpass, in fact…
Anyway. I shall blog-save my memories for the coming days and weeks. I have got so much cool stuff to share with you!
I wish you a wonderful Jubilee Double-Bank-Holiday! Clarity Towers is closed Thursday and Friday this week. Are you celebrating with the Queen?
The weather is supposed to be good too, which is great, because we’re off to Brixton tomorrow, to a Music Festival !! Great birthday gift from the kids – they know me well. I LOVE MADNESS!!! AND Supergrass! AND Squeeze !! Comfy dancing shoes and pink lipstick – what more does a girl need? Gottadoitwhileyoustillcan…
Whatever you are up to, enjoy this long weekend. We sure will.
Bye bye Brooklyn – ‘allo Brixton!
Love and Hugs,
