Just your average walk to work...

Yesterday I was on a training course in London town, so my work very kindly put me up in an amazing hotel within walking distance from the course venue. I didn't realise that my walk to the course was going to be quite so pretty...

First up is leaving the hotel:

Next up was a sight very familiar to those of us who have BBC news, I almost squealed out loud when I saw this, just like the tv!

The steps leading to the park:

And the gorgeous colours of Autumn in St. James's Park:

Across Horse Guards Parade:

And The London Eye sneaking a peek:

More Autumn brights:

And finally my destination, The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining:

The course was inside a haunted library and the big oak door kept creaking open, definitely added to the atmosphere!

Two other things definitely worth a mention: thanks heaps to Tizz who came all the way into town to meet me for what turned out to be a 35 minute cup of coffee before I had to grab my train back. Love you loads Tizz and can't wait to see you in a couple of weeks!

Secondly, all the lovely photos above were actually taken on my shiny new Redberry as I left my camera at home. And I have to say that I am very impressed with the quality. This could well be the season of the visual posts...

The thing that surprised me about the Scotland Yard sign is that it's more or less down a back street.

Also... I used to be a member of the IOM3, a long time ago.
