Back home once more

It been quiet on the my blogs lately, and why? I have been away for several reasons. For instance, was the larger part of last week spent in London on a conference. Luckily the Conference Centre was plumb in the middle of some famous sightseeing objects:


Some of my time had of course to be spent here at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, but right behind me was -

Westminster Abbey.

and right around the corner was -

The Parliament.


And while I have been away, I have received this nice award from Ida and Pernille. Thank you both - a real inspiration!!

Thought you must be away. Good to know you returned home safely from "the smoke" as we Northerners refer to London.

PERBS said...

Well, I missed you -- checked often and nothing!!!!!! I guess maybe, just maybe these shots make up for your absence from blogging. Ü Actually, they are amazing. Welcome back!

Hope you had a great time in London and enjoyed the dental conference (I looked it up).
Its a pity that modern building doesn't match the old buildings around there, smack in the heart of the most historic part of London.
Did you go on the London Eye?
Next to the QE conference centre is , I think, the Methodist Church and in the basement there is a cafeteria we made use of last time we were in that part of London.
