Thank You For Your Kindness – Resting – Good News – London, The Glass City

London, The Glass City

I really appreciate all of the kind words, wishes and comments upon my last post. Since returning home I have rested deeply, and haven’t checked WordPress nor Instagram, I’ve allowed myself to switch off, and build my model aeroplane.

Although I am feeling better than I was I’m still very tired. Getting checked up by the Dr has confirmed my blood pressure is low and that the anaemia has worsened, which are as a result of anorexia.

I am going to take my time in replying to people’s comments over the next few days, and although I wont be able to catch up with your past posts, I will endeavour to read current ones as and when I can.

The good news is that my referral to the eating disorders day centre has gone through, funding has been approved, so fingers crossed that they will accept me. In the mean time I increased my calories again on Saturday.

Here are a few photos of reflections that I took whilst in London. I came to realise that central London could easily be known as The Glass City. It’s everywhere. It was useful preparation for one of the exercise coming up in part 4 of Foundations in Photography. There is a Starbucks very close by, which meant that I could recharge my lapstop whilst I was having a break.

How Can A Rest Day Include 12k Walking?

Richard is effing crazy.

Finding himself a little exhausted from our adventures he decided that Sunday would be a rest day, with the plan being to sit in Starbucks and play his stupid computer game.

Wonderful in theory, and to be fair he spent 2 hours doing so, and then decided to walk around Hyde Park and the Serpentine lake, via Marble Arch.

Marble Arch with the golden arches over my left shoulder. I’m loving it. The rhino is part of a series of installations by Tusk to “Raise public awareness of the plight of the rhino, our conservation work and to raise vital public funds to support our projects.”

That’s my seriousness over, although I had to be for the last paragraph, important stuff.

Onwards to Hyde Park and some exercise. Would you really? In public? I would but there’s no way that Richard will join in.

Some pretty good birds on the Serpentine, but my favourites were flying around all over the place. London has a whole load of ring-necked parakeets. They started off with a small flock, probably in the 1950’s or 69’s, but nobody knows for sure. They’re all over London now and have started to travel further a field. I didn’t get my photo taken with them.

Different adventures await today, I’ll post about it tomorrow. Whatever you do today remember that action man loves ya all.
