However, looking through some recent photos I have seen some lovely things which I wanted to share:
In an Antiques shop in Berkhamsted, I found this gorgeous Cake Knife. I never knew such a utensil existed, but this claims to 'make cake cutting a pleasure'! I didn't buy it, but sneaked a photo and it makes me smile whenever I look at it.
I don't know why I picked up my camera last week when I was heading to a course in Oxford, but I was glad I had it with me when I was driving home past Thame. I pulled off the road into a lay-by just to take some shots of this glorious late-afternoon sun, reflected in the flooded meadow. It looks so idyllic you would never guess that there's a busy dual-carriageway roaring past. I drove past again a few days later and the floods have gone, so I'm pleased I captured this scene when I did.
We went to St Albans again recently. We find ourselves going to the 11.15 Eucharist in the Cathedral at least once a month. We always enjoy a wander around the town too, especially before the service - many shops have yet to open, and the streets are quiet; it's a lovely time. I had never noticed this door in the clock tower before... what a great message for us all!
