Happy 26th birthday to my son, James! Yesterday we went to Leeds to kick off the celebrations in style. His new apartment had been looking very bland and white and needed an injection of colour. A bit of artwork on the walls, rug, cushion, potted plant… and do you recognise BB8 sitting there on the windowsill? Happy in his new home. As we hope James will be.
It hasn’t all been smooth sailing. Life seldom is, is it? Leeds is a city busy reinventing itself. An interesting juxtaposition of old and shiny new. James is a big fan of Asian cuisine, and we ate at Bar Soba in The Light- a new complex for dining and entertainment. It’s good to be optimistic about the future. Optimistic and full of hope, as the weekly challenge suggests.
Have a lovely weekend and I hope to see you on Monday for another walk.
I really wasn’t planning to post this at all, and nothing could be further removed from my recent highly genteel walk at Newstead Abbey, could it? One of the highlights of my Christmas was a trip to the cinema to see the new Star Wars movie, in the company of my husband and son. I loved it!
I had already been introduced to BB8 on Christmas morning, when this small but endearing creature was rocking and rolling around my kitchen floor. An unexpected present to my son. Brings out the child in all of us! Elegant though she may be, my daughter was always a Star Wars fan too, and I have fond memories of taking her to the cinema, all those years ago.
