I headed for my local park. The kids were out trying to ride sleighs.
Even the ponds were largely frozen over.
|No, that isn't a selfie.|
And ok, this hardly matches a David Attenborough natural history series, but I was quite please with these shots of the somewhat limited range of wildlife in a North London Park.
Then off to Islington to have lunch with a mate of mine who is a bout to emigrate to Vancouver. Obviously with weather like this who needs Canada? Anyway, we had lunch at the Drapers Arms in Islington. Now this is a proper gastropub, ie not just somewhere that does ridiculously over-priced burgers which are "gastro" because they can name the cattle they were minced out of.
