Eric & Saffie's Christmas Present

The treat dispenser!
They have to put their paws into slots in the sides and knock treats from one level to the next before they finally drop in to the bottom trough.

Eric...being Eric...decides it's easier to knock the whole thing over and let the treats fall out.

It's all a bit tiring though!

Christmas Tree Festival

Yesterday we went to this festival in Boxmoor, Hemel Hempstead

Funny, there was some stained glass there!

This tree was decorated by the badgers who are the young section of St. John's ambulance

Geffrye Museum - Post 3

Coming up to date now

One of the first artificial Christmas trees

"Loft living" Christmas

I thought this was one of the best of the room descriptions...

Downstairs there was an exhibition about teenagers' bedrooms, but that's another story
When we left the museum we took a stroll down Shoreditch High Street to catch the overground train from the next station along and must have passed at least 10 Vietnamese restaurants!

Geffrye Museum - Post 2

Not very festive in the 1600s

Think I can see a bit of holly!

That's more like it...

Geffrye Museum - Christmas 2016 - Post 1

Here's a first! We went to The Geffrye Museum in London and it was actually on my "London Mini Map", but only just - in the top right corner.

It's the "Museum of the Home" and explores the home from 1600 to the present day through displays of living rooms.

At the moment, the rooms are decorated for Christmas although in the early rooms you would hardly know it

The museum is set in Grade 1 listed 18th century almshouse buildings in Hoxton

Here's the founder - Sir Robert Geffrye

Bushey Rose Garden 2

It's all very well maintained and well worth a visit - perhaps not in December though!

Bushey Rose Garden 1 may realise that we went here slightly earlier than December this year!

It's well worth a visit - and free as well
