Pride

After the catch up excesses of last night, I'm sat near the famous Peace Gardens waiting to meet another friend for breakfast.
I have a lunchtime date too to fit in and I've decieded it's going to be a lovely day.

The rainbow flag is flying over this old steel city,
My home town

  2. Christ! The town hall's clock tower is leaning over. Has there been an earthquake?

  3. The sun's shining and you're meeting lots of good friends in a comfortable place. You've decided right; and there is more in how you decide things are going to be than some may think.

  9. That flag flying is great. I saw on FB that the British Embassy in Paris came out in support of the pride march. Wonderful!

  11. Who would have ever thought? Wouldn't you love to be able to go back and tell the child you were that such a thing would happen?

  12. Not sure if it made the news in the UK, but trump, our hitler wannabe, has ordered our embassy and consulates abroad to not fly the pride flag. Thankfully some have defied him, and raised it next to the US flag.

    1. It made it to Facebook so it was seen in the UK. Your president really is a tosser, voted in by lots of tossers it seems.

  18. As long as it's not just a politically convenient gesture but a genuine expression of acceptance, it's excellent! Yes, I am a bit cynical, having dealt with our local municipal government.

    Love Sheffield 'men of steel'
    There used to be a wonderful reclaimation yard at the site of the old Killamarsh Railway Station.
    Carted a huge pitch pine pew back down the M1 many years ago.
    Has the city changed much?
    I'd love to visit 'op North again.

  25. I spent the first night of my first honeymoon in March 1952 at The Grand Hotel in Sheffield John (that wasn't yesterday!) before going on up into the Yorkshire Moors for the rest of the week (Marsden, Meltham area)

    Was not far from you that day! stayed in a hotel next door as our daughter back to Sheffield for her graduation - a proud day, we are from the Midlands but she loves Sheffield.

  27. Lovely photo looks like lovely weather there with just enough wind to see the flag flying, I'm glad I live in Canada not as stuffy and backward as the guy in charge across the border.
