I had a mentally restorative day off on Thursday. The weather was reasonable, so I took advantage by spending as much time in the daylight as I could. I walked all the way to Peckham, picked up some ingredients that aren’t available closer to home, and browsed the charity shops. I bought a nice jumper for £10 in Crisis, then sat in their café with a coffee reading my book for a while. I walked back home again, and arrived just after sunset (so some time after 15:51).
It’s cold, it’s damp, it’s dark, and I didn’t do very much.
My mother came for dinner on Tuesday, as she was in London for one night to take a course on how to use her extremely fancy, capable, and complex new sewing machine.
