Twist of Lemon by maggiemae

Twist of Lemon

Our journeys continued from Geneva through Paris to Manchester. No decent photograph opportunities so this has to be it! SIL is so good at making these!
Three Good Things:
1. John ordered a wheelchair for Paris connection and boy, was that good - 20 minutes of fast walking by me while he held the bags.
2. Went back an hour to London time - extra time not really needed - tired.
3. A great welcome!
“A great welcome”, what a lovely phrase. Martinis! Nice.

While I am not a fan of martinis I think this one looks beautiful. Your SIL has some mad skills. You do too for taking such a wonderful photograph

@grammyn The lemon is so good for you - this could be considered a health drink, do you think?

Great shot and I'm sure it tasted as good as it looks! Fav

You're in our cold damp sleety north west.....a bit of a wake up call! I know your time is precious & we have discussed it but feel free to get in touch if you have a window if opportunity! No worries if you haven't, I know what it's like on holiday & precious time with family! 😘

Great capture. Now to backtrack and see why John needs a wheelchair.

lush. I 'm expecting inspector poirot to turn up any minute and comment on the exact length of the lemon peel
January 19th, 2018  
Oh yes please, a glass for me too! Welcome to soggy England!
January 19th, 2018  
@maggiemae LOL! Absolutely!

A wonderful drink and an artistic capture -- just like a photo in a glossy magazine -- fav and welcome to England !

Excellent shot. I lived in Manchester for a while when I was single and it always rained. My sister still lives there.
January 19th, 2018  
What a splendid looking cocktail. Hope it was as good as you have made it look. Welcome to UK. Hope you can enjoy a little winter sunshine whilst you are here. You are near where I grew up.

Beautiful shot.
January 20th, 2018

Not a bad "desperation" shot at all!
January 20th, 2018  
Such a very artistic & delightful shot.....I agree, lemon is very good for you!!!

@lesip We had a bad accident in 1978 and his ankle was squashed - has had trouble walking for distances ever since. Besides its a quick way to get through customs and to the right gate when its miles away!

@onewing Its been raining on and off and very cold the whole time, Babs!
January 20th, 2018  
@beryl John said you always know when you are in England - everything is so green - and it rains!
January 20th, 2018  
@francoise Wouldn't that be Sherlock Holmes, Francoise?
January 20th, 2018  
Awesome shot
January 20th, 2018  
Welcome to the UK - what a shame it is so cold and wet at the moment!! It would have been lovely to meet up but I see you are only here for a couple of days and family time is so precious!! Enjoy the rest of your trip. I understand its even colder in Toronto - my friend's son lives there and works in Air Traffic Control - he may even bring your plane in!! Love this image - a dry martini is my favourite drink!! Fav!

@pamknowler I'll wave to him as we go past, Pam! They do such a tremendous job!
January 20th, 2018  
Looks very refreshing!

Nice to have John and his wheelchair for him and luggage as well. What a trip you two are on. Nice shot of your drink.
