Chartwell is a country house near the town of Westerham,…
Attending a business meeting in person during the pandemic is not something I am keen to do, particularly going on several public modes of transport to get to the intended venue, but life must go on and just take extra precautions to avoid the infection.
Winter is not my favourite weather either, being born in the tropic, cold weather doesn’t suit me much, but when the sky is blue and the sun is shining, well, there is no such thing as wrong weather, just need to wear appropriate clothing for the time of the year.
My trip to London this afternoon, to check on a potential venue location for a few small future exhibitions I plan to organise. Looking at the extremely quiet Southbank today had created a small dent in my confidence about organising an exhibition this year, particularly Covid is on and off with new variants, etc.
The great things about being in London, there are so many things to look at, to enjoy, to do, we need to be a bit more adventurous to make the most of sunny day. Making the effort to be out and in central London, need to be combined with other activities. So, today, I was killing several birds with one stone. After completing the business meeting, walk along the river for some fresh air and city sightsing, whilst enjoying my long afternoon walk from Southbank towards Victoria station. Meeting my good friend Dewi at Victoria street for some nice Wagamama dinner and a long catch-up, was priceless. Dewi lives only a walking distance from Victoria, in a lovely corner of Pimlico, so we decided to walk there too to burn a few more calories after indulging ourselves with some rather large plates of noodles. A visit to a nearby pub to close the evening, and Dewi walked me to the bus stop to head home.
A truly busy day, despite the freezing weather.
