Except that I do want to complain about the 2.5 hour commute I endured on Tuesday morning. There were no eastbound services on the Tube, and I work at the eastern end of the Metropolitan Line. And it had taken 45 minutes southbound, stuck in a tunnel for half of it, to find that out! Followed by 3 buses and then a 15 minute walk.
Oh, not to mention a power outage on the entirety of the line I live along, on Thursday evening. Some people were stuck underground for 3 hours.
Fortunately it started before I left the office and so I took the Met line and a bus.
My suburban street (spacious Edwardian houses) on a typical grey day. Once upon a time it was probably tree-lined with these huge trees, but they have been lopped to halt the damage caused to the house foundations.
I went for a little ramble last week because it was still light when I left the office!
Here you see Spitalfield's old shops.
Spitalfield's new shopping street next to the shiny ABN Amro building (see top left corner), Spitalfields Church, and the old shops opposite all span centuries
Christ Church Spitalfields, 300 years old, restored in 2004 not as a church but a venue
Lincoln, the life of the party, taking a nap whilst trying not to miss a thing.
With my honorary nephew, taking a guess as to where the phonecam was pointing, hence all the empty space.

Snow on Saturday, my early birthday present.
Very wet clumpy snow which fell off soon after and melted.
