on the way back to the station last night there were some incredible sudden rain showers. i sheltered under this shop canopy.
As if by magic, the shop keeper appeared and invited me to shelter in his shop. it was a really nice tailors shop and the owner was a very nice chap. it was obviously i was’t going to buy anything (my trousers are beyond repair) so it was simply a matter of kindness !
hoorah for such things. (if i remember what his shop is called i’ll let you know)
update: the shop is Nicola Donati. i took a photo of the shop on a dry morning here
as a pedestrian, i find bikes a little annoying. they get up to all sorts of shenanigans with skant regard for passing walkers.
the worst of the worst has to be mobile phone using bike riders. here is one such girl, not quite managing to ride successfully the wrong way up a one way street.
it’s cold and i’m inappropriately dressed. so i went to the local charity shop and bought a long armed shirt for warmth (i have no meetings today so casual is ok).
john insisted on putting his hat on my head and taking this photo of me and my mug of hot water. i feel he may be making a mockery.
