Coming down the steep not-really-a-path at PW and slip sliding all the way down.

The dog with the white bit round it’s nose and mouth.

Autumnal trees in FP.

A sofa nap after getting up. I’m really glad I got some extra sleep.

Reading the end of my book at my desk when I should have been working.

Egg fried rice and Eton mess at Jen and Fiona’s new place.

Eurostar straight through to Amsterdam.

Botanical garden.

Finally sorted out all my photos and deleted LOADS and found some real gems.

The snake eyes.

A successful Islam and nature walk. And so happy the sun came out for it.

The squirrel at lunch.

Elvie is actually quite cute.

Garlicy, cheesy, courgette rice. With freshly picked courgettes.

A herd of deer.

Woodlands and a stream. Obviously I put my hands in it.

The bizarrely huge landscape of corn fields. It felt almost Mongolian.

A long doughnut.

The smell of the earth after it rained.

A quiet walk in Epping Forest, just me and the trees.

Listening to the rustles in the dry grass.

That first taste of korma. I’ve not had it in so long and the coconut taste is delicious.

A ridiculous but tasty dinner.

I got to pick blackberries from the secret place I’ve never been to before.
