Things I love ....

I love the architecture in the area we live at the moment. We have a lot of Victorian and Edwardian properties close by and some houses have delightful features which you just don't see on modern housing.

These beautiful Edwardian chimneys, which belong to a nursery school, can be seen from B's bedroom at present, although very soon the building next to us (not the nursery) will be pulled down to be replaced by a block of flats. Thought I'd take a photo before (1) we move and (2) we won't be able to view the chimneys anymore, we'll only see bricks out of B's window.

The nursery was previously a photographic studio. When P and I got married we had our wedding in Peterborough, although at the time we were living in London, and the photographer's studio was in this building. P also used to go to this building for scouts when he was a child. We never, for a moment, thought we'd be living so close to it in the future. In fact one of our HE group members had a friend he used to visit regularly who lived in our house. How strange life can be.

I love Edwardian Architecture too and in fact did a piece on it for my A Level Art!

notumbalumba2007Yes, life can do this kind of thing indeed. Perhaps this is a good opportunity to teach little ones about continuity , community spirit and their place in the continuous being of their land.
Enjoy your family.
