I’ve come to appreciate the none city environment more through the pandemic and lockdown. The ability to escape the city (that I still adore) was taken away from us for so long over the last year that when during breaks of lockdown we were able to go out exploring I relished the chance to walk … Continue reading For the Love of Parks
Feeling much more like myself today, which is nice. Not fully energised but definitely up for a walk. We decided to hit Battersea Park, walking via the high street to avoid the riverside crowds. We were obviously hit on the heads when we thought we would beat the crowds. The high street was pretty busy, … Continue reading Day 52: Bank Holiday Monday Sunshine
Today I ventured out on a new walk, I headed towards Battersea Park but via the high street rather than the river. I wanted to see what life was like on Battersea Park Road, once busy with shops, cafes and pubs. Today it was a shadow of it former self. A couple of cafes were … Continue reading Day 46: Battersea

Today started with a very cold and blustery walk along the river, the correct weather for a bank holiday. None of this hot sunny … Continue reading Day 12: bank holiday lounging
The sun returned in full force today. Its been beautiful. I completely misjudged the weather today and set out for my walk in a completely black outfit and too many layers. Its my own fault of course because I also left an hour later than normal. The mornings have been chilly even with the sun … Continue reading Day 7: the sun returns
