I don’t know about where you are, but there’s been some pretty yucky weather around recently. I now leave for work in the dark in a morning, and often in the rain. But it’s OK because as soon as I get to the tube, the flask of tea comes out, a podcast goes on, the knitting appears and I have my little morning oasis of calm.
Having said that, October can also produce some glorious weather, and a couple of weekends ago, my family descended for a London jaunt and we went for a wander. We walked part of the Jubilee Greenway (marked footpaths all around the city) and this particular stretch was new to a us all.
A couple of miles took us along the canal towpath from Little Venice through to Camden and it was simply idyllic. Removed from the hustle and bustle of the city all around, calm, quiet and full of the glorious colours of Autumn. This walk is now earmarked in my head as a good thing to do with any new visitors to London as it shows a lovely side of the city that I think can be easily overlooked.
P.S. Where has the gorgeous, golden, autumn weather gone? It seems we've hit winter drizzle but without having quite reached mulled wine season yet...
