27/11/20 – Winter is coming!

Woke up to London feeling beautifully wintery this morning with a fresh blanket of cold fog on everything. It settled down and stayed until around lunchtime. In other news I had so much fun with Nic this evening, eating pizza and playing mini games on the Switch. Who knew virtual darts would be so difficult?

24/11/20 – Sunset forest walks

We did another long walk today, a 7 mile circular route in Kent. It was really fun following the written instructions. We only had to back track once, which I think is pretty good going! Today is also ten years on from the day my dad took his own life. It’s why I’ve taken aContinue reading “24/11/20 – Sunset forest walks”

23/11/20 – Local wanderer

Nic and I have today and tomorrow booked off work. Today we walked seven miles around our local area wandering the scenic routes between errands. We stopped for a while to watch these parakeets shouting loudly at a squirrel in that hole in the tree! We’re not too sure who we were rooting for though…Continue reading “23/11/20 – Local wanderer”

22/11/20 – 12 miles of nattering

I’m really enjoying being able to meet up with friends, one-on-one, during this lockdown. It means I’m getting a lot of walking in! Today I racked up another 12 miles from chatting and walking to two separate friends. It’s a wonderful time of year for it as well as the air is so crisp andContinue reading “22/11/20 – 12 miles of nattering”

15/11/20 – Soggy catchup

I met up with my friend today for a walking catch up (a luxury of lockdown 2.0). We walked nearly 7 miles over 2.5 hours catching up on so many things. It was truly wonderful and we already have another walk booked in for next week! It absolutely chucked it down but that just madeContinue reading “15/11/20 – Soggy catchup”

09/11/20 – Parakeet watching

Today Nic and I made a pack lunch and went to the park to eat, just to shake things up a bit. We ended up watching these parakeets for about 15 minutes trying to work out what they were waiting for that was inside that hole… They kept fighting over it but it looked likeContinue reading “09/11/20 – Parakeet watching”

08/11/20 – Autumn colours

Another autumnal walk today to get us out of the house. I wasn’t in the best mood today… But it was a nice walk none the less. I spent most of the rest of the day napping then reading more Harry Potter (onto the fifth book!) Let’s hope tomorrow will be better after a goodContinue reading “08/11/20 – Autumn colours”

07/11/20 – Chilly walks

I’m so happy to be back reunited with the wonderful Mariana after her three months in Portugal then two week quarantine!! We were finally allowed to meet up for a socially distanced walk in the Autumnal sun with a chance to say hello to her adorable shiny new baby! It’s filled me with so muchContinue reading “07/11/20 – Chilly walks”

04/11/20 – Birds and swing

My first run since I fell last week! It was great. I headed out first thing so it was quite chilly but the sun was shining and it felt glorious being outside in the early hours. Half way through my run I stopped to swing on the rope swing, pausing my audio book to takeContinue reading “04/11/20 – Birds and swing”
