Wow, I can't believe the weather in London today. OK, its a bank holiday weekend and I've ignored the faithful alarm that sounded at 6.30 this morning, turned over in the bed and gone back to sleep. At about 11.00, I finally struggle out of bed and pull the curtains in my bedroom. My Goodness! I just can't believe how dazzling it is outside. I am annoyed that I have failed to make some proper plans for the day, but no, I will not be spending this day indoors.
There are things I must do with the car at that Total petrol station near IKEA, then of course I must visit IKEA itself, even if just to lose myself in that maze of shelf after shelf of desirable items on display. And I've always wanted to go and have a look at the Lee River and Picketts Lock, which I live not very far from, have read quite a lot about, but have been kept too busy by hectic London living to have ever had the chance to see. Then I must take in the Banbury and Lockwood reservoirs. I'll take the bike with me and cycle down the miles of cycle paths I understand are in the area. I only wish G had called me as he said he would, so we could do something together. Its such a glorious day..
