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?

26/11/20 – Here it comes…

On a very cold and quiet evening walk tonight with Nic we saw the beginnings of Christmas in our local area! It’s made me feel really happy. I love this time of year seeing more and more trees and lights popping up! I’ve also just finished the sixth Harry Potter book! What an emotional journeyContinue reading “26/11/20 – Here it comes…”

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”

21/11/20 – More weekend walking

Lovely, muddy walk with Nic today. Feeling smug in our wellies as we trudged through Sydenham Woods to get to the view of London from The Horniman Museum. Then Nic dropped me off so I could go for another walk around Norwood Lake with Mariana! Lots of walking with my faves, followed by a SainsContinue reading “21/11/20 – More weekend walking”

19/11/20 – Tofu time!

I had to get a bit it resourceful this evening when it came to pressing tofu for our dinner… Ended up using a bunch of heavy cookbooks and topped it off with a spider plant, poor thing didn’t stand a chance! We made sweet and sour stir fry but the sauce was only okay. IContinue reading “19/11/20 – Tofu time!”

18/11/20 – Morning sunshine run

Started off today with a 8km run that I only mildly had to drag myself out of bed for this morning. I’m enjoying it a lot more recently, now that I’m running for the fun of running, rather than being so competitive with myself and others. I still have a while to go yet, butContinue reading “18/11/20 – Morning sunshine run”
