Seriously, child, thereโ€™s three days left!
Let me rephrase thatโ€ฆ
Actually thereโ€™s two.
Perhaps itโ€™s really time
Dad and I took over?
Assist in your packing?
Stuff your things in your bags?
HELP! Did you order any boxes?

THANKS

Time

I should imagine a universally anticipated time would be Meal Time.

But what should diners make of Dinner Time according to this sign at a London hotel?

Someone obviously tried to make an amendment!

Duck

Can you just hear Mama Duck telling her babies to settle down while she figures out the quickest path to the pond?

The little family waddled off shortly after this photo was taken … to the pond.

One of the nicest things about travelling is the unexpected and often endearingly unforgettable little things that you come across.

Here are some of my favourite things. (I’ve always wanted to say that!)

This is Shakespeare’s Wallbook in Stratford-upon-Avon. Every one of his plays is represented in chronological order. You can read more about it here.

Then there’s this gorgeous carousel in Cardiff, Wales.

Here are some of the most amusing traffic signs in London. They are done by Clet Abraham, who is regarded as a menace by some councils, and as an artistic genius by others. He uses vinyl stickers for his art.

And a poignant poem on a train:

And, perhaps the most unexpected of all, two 30-metre tall Kelpie heads seemingly rising out of nowhere, in Falkirk, Scotland. Kelpies are said to be supernatural water horses, each with the strength of 10 horses.

Have a wonderful day!

Check out the fearless feline atop the roof of the Duke of York pub in York, UK. This cat is one of the city’s whimsical sculptures.

Here’s a link to a website that provides more information on these cats (there are about 20) and walking tours you can go on to spot them!

The photo below shows part of York Minster. This cathedral is a wonderful representation of the English Gothic period (1230 – 1472).

Or you could, quite literally, end up in the Dog House, which is really a hotdog stand in the market place.

Have a wonderful day!
