Wordless Wednesday ~ 4: The Peter Pan room

View from room 4

Click here for more Wordless Wednesday participants



  1. This is the view from "Room 4" the room where JM Barrie was staying when he wrote Peter Pan. We had a meeting in there yesterday but one day I'll get a decent photo of the room looking grand (and not filled with paperwork).

    By the way, apologies for the lack of posts. I have a cold plus I've been super busy at work plus my baby brother is in hospital with ketoacidosis.

  2. Hope you get better soon. It looks too cold & wet outside to take new photos. :)

  3. great picture! Happy WW!
    Grüsse aus Germany + România :-)

  4. Such a story in "the Peter Pan room." Maybe you will have time and energy to tell it another day.

    Of course, Barrie didn't look out of the window and see the London Eye!

  5. How interesting! Looks like London weather, eh?

  6. Great photo! It's a shame that the London Eye wasn't in that skyline when he was writing...

  7. Hope you will feel better soon! The weather there is usually wet and chilly. Take good care of yourself.
    And hope your baby brother will get well soon too.

    Looking forward to seeing your decent photo of the Peter Pan room!

  8. nice photo, charming, evocative.

  9. Great photo! Sums up a very gloomy Wednesday. Love the rain spots on the window. Hope you and your brother both get well soon.

  10. It's looking wet and cold there, my friend. Did you get any snow in the city yesterday?

  11. I don't think even Peter Pan would have ventured out in that weather, not even for a spin on the big wheel.

    Thanks for the postcard and kind words.

  12. Interesting shot. The weather looks dismal--we've had the same here, too. Hope you feel better, and your little brother too!

  13. I hope your brother feels well soon Emm!!! Keep the photographs coming, but make sure you are taking care of yourself and family first.

  14. Hi Emm! Grey time... here also... ;)

    Time to relax with a visit to a museum near to you? Blogtrotter is at the British! Enjoy and have a great holiday season!

  15. That photo reminds me of what I'm missing in London!!

    I hope that your cold is better and that your brother will be out of hospital soon.

    Very best wishes to you and your family for a very merry Christmas and a happy new year,


  16. @ AVCr8teur: Hiya! Yes, it took me a couple of days to get better and then a couple of days to get my brother better but we're al fine now! I must agree with you - the weather wasn't very condusive to taking photos for a while there.

    @ Carmen: Hi - I don't believe we've met before! Thank you for stopping by and commenting. What language is your blog in?

    @ bee: You are so right! I was wondering if anyone would notice that! The story is actually simple - my company's headquarters are the house in which JM Barrie was staying while he wrote Peter Pan. His actual room is on the top floor. I've worked at my company for over two years but I've never gotten decent photos of the room! Either I have no camera on me or the room is in "business" mode with papers and chairs all over the place!

    @ Elle: Oh definitely. That is why I'm tempted to take photos every single time it isn't raining!

    @ Claire: Heh - can you imagine how different the story might have been if he had seen that?!

    @ Chen Yin Tzu: Yes, it is. It really does rain more here than any other country I have been too!

    @ Italo: Thank you!

    @ Wissy: Thank you! Yes, unfortunately, as one of the health and safety reps, climbing out onto the balcony in the rain to take photos would be kind of frowned down upon!

    @ JaPRA: We definitely got snow during that week. It was all a bit of a blur. I can remember life progressing as normal and then suddenly I lost two weeks!

    @ Martyn: I agree! And I'm so glad you got the postcard!

    @ Erin: Thank you for your kind wishes! I am loving your snow pictures!

    @ Phoenix: Heh. I definitely went missing in action for a couple of days there!

    @ GMG: Was it grey there? Does it snow there ever?

    @ Roz: Hi! Where are you blogging now?? I seem to have lost touch with you!

  17. I love the raindrops on the window pane ... it makes it feel all the more cosy (to have been on the inside).
