Knitting and London life. Not necessarily in that order.

Signs of autumn
The cycling shorts and fingerless gloves are replaced by full-length tights and Goretex gloves (12 October). First hot water bottle (15 October). We are doing our best to hold out without heating till November. Luckily our flat is quite well insulated. First sighting of the 'ghost train' past our window (15 October) (it passes at about 11pm all lit up with ghostly lights, I think it sprays de-icer on the points). Comfort food back on the menu: lamb shanks and mashed potatoes (tonight!)
All the same, the tomatoes on my south-west facing balcony are still ripening - much more slowly but still going red!
