Where I Live...

Following my post about what my fellow bloggers from the U S of A thought about England. (which you can read by clicking here), I thought I'd give you a 5 minute tour of my neighbourhood, just to show that we don't all live in castles or in the dark ages.

(Plus, I know I've been a bit on the lax side of things when it comes to the old blog lately, but this is only because I've had to have an operation to surgically attach a paintbrush to the palm of my hand.)

(Yes, that last bit is a complete and utter lie, but you have to admit it sounds a lot more interesting than just saying "I've been very busy painting", doesn't it?)

Enjoy the pretty pictures... ♥

The view from my rear window. Note the lack of rain.
My front door.  Note the lack of a castle.
The bottom of my road.  You can see the pub in the distance.
The railway line with the gates up.  It won't last very long...
See what I mean?
A train.  And another pub.
The cattle market - I mean - the night club.
The River Lea
Another pub.  But we actually drink in this one.
Pretty flowers.  Next to the pub.  They've probably been peed on.
St Mary's
And finally, some more local art.  Nice...

(P.S.  Sorry for the slight but very obvious lameness of this blog.  When I eventually managed to extract the paintbrush from my hand, I will write something decent.  Pinky swear!)

Those flowers have so totally been pee'd on! And the view out your back door is beautiful. And three pubs--BONUS!

I think where you live is pretty cute, actually.

And, love the part about "these flowers have probably been peed on." Haha!

I love this post, it made me smile and it was interesting to see all the different places around you. This really makes me want to do one myself, I'm in Australia. I we should be born with paintbrushes glued to our hands ;-)

Thanks for the lovely tour. I thought how wonderfully green it is. Coming from a desert dweller it doesn't look short of rain. Your neighborhood looks beautiful. :)
