In search of Brian and the remaining colour of autumn in Fridaywoods 

Stella and I stepped out this morning expecting to be dodging high winds and stepping around fallen Boughs and wind swept debris but the reality was much tamer.  Yes there were a lot of leaves, however it’s autumn apart from the fact there were a lot if green leaves to.  The so called operation to …

Clouds and windy start to a Thursday 

Another 5.30 clock on, so I was up at 4.30 and my best mate Stella  needed her walk, being that time it was still dark so I didn’t actually walk along Ramparts lane, we took in part of the garrison walk.  To say it was windy was a definite understatement, not so windy to carry …

A quiet start to Tuesday 

I’m not starting so early today, a short run to Oxford but not collecting until 8am, locally. It’s just gone 6am and I’m up and out with Stella, and as I don’t clock on until 7 I’m giving her a longer wander than normal. There are patches of blue in an otherwise cloudy grey sky, …
