I must apologise for not answering your lovely messages and visiting your blogs for Five on Friday, hopefully I will do soon. Yesterday was National Heart Awareness Day and unfortunately I spent the day at the hospital being made very aware about heart issues. Fortunately the patient seems to be OK but will have to take a lot more medication. Watch out for swollen legs and check with the doctor.
Sometimes there are just too many photos to choose from for Five on Friday! Here's another selection from Reading to show you.

A quick update on the Abbey Ruins - specialists from Cliveden Conservation, originally set up to help National Trust properties, have been in carrying out restoration tests on the walls.
