It’s been a lovely day today.
Not as summery as last weekend but sunny and so mild… all good.
It started with a seasonal breakfast, of porridge with kabocha squash puree, with a micowaved apple and almond butter:
And finished with a spectacular sunset:
I’d just got back from a two-hour drive and was knackered but it was the sort of tiredness that gets better with exercise and fresh air…
And I was rewarded by those colours:
I kept stopping the bike to take more pictures:
But still couldn’t do it justice 🙂
The long drive was to Essex and back (and just to say, I always thought the tolls on the Dartford crossing were only going to be charged until they paid it off; how has it now gone up to £1.50 each way?!)
It was for an exciting reason, but I won’t say what yet, just in case 🙂
So instead, here are some more random pictures from the week.
“Religious building ahead”?! is it informative, in which case you’d have to be pretty thick to have missed the socking great building just behind it, PC in not calling it a church (see above) or a warning, to stop you walking into it (same applies) – who knows… 🙂
The next one was taken on Wednesday. A teacher from one of the local primary schools had asked to bring “some children” (her words) in as part of a writing project, to see the office and learn about newspapers. Not only was I confused by the way she kept ringing my direct line and asking for “someone called Eleanor”, but I was slightly intimidated by the TWENTY EIGHT children she brought, eeek!
I managed to bore them into silence though – and check out the face the red-headed one’s pulling, brilliant 🙂
And last but not least, you know I love my weird veg, and here’s my dad with one of his finest:
He sent that picture to his friend with the message “that was the only one I could lift” – love it 🙂
Hope everyone has a good week!
