Blue doors and foam

Today was not only Valentine’s Day but also the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Tiger to boot. What should we do on such a day? Why, the laundry, of course! (Well, it needed doing.)

While the laundry was spinning we went for a little walk around. The first thing that caught my eye was the sight of these blue doors. They made a bright contrast with the sober brickwork.

Nearby was this rather handsome building. Over the ornate doorway it says “Russell Rooms”. I believe these are rooms belonging to the Russell Hotel and can be hired for conferences are so on.

Back at the launderette, we saw this machine in action: somebody had overdone it with the washing powder. It was like watching a film about London in the days of the Great Smog. I just hope he doesn’t go out in the rain in those clothes…

On the way home we bought a couple of slices of cake for tea. Sorry, no photos: they didn’t last long enough!

    I think you should do an action reply so we can get to see the slices of cake this time 🙂
