I stopped to take this photo on my way to the tube, out of surprise. It’s getting darker, later, already.
Imagine: bagpipes playing ‘jingle bells’ in the background. Women taking turns to pose in front of an pink illuminated fountain behind. And a lad, not more than 18 years old, gently whispering ‘suki suki’ as he passes.
The goal is to fill my new flat with plants. There is a south-facing balcony (opening to the living room) which is a prime location for a potted plant garden. There are also deep windowsills in the kitchen and bathroom and wall-mounted felt bags for hanging plants!
You know how in the movies the lovable and scatterbrained leading lady has a comically old phone which randomly stops and starts working and then at the office she’s warned of her overflowing purse just moments before her phone slips out and falls down five flights of stairs to the ground floor and splits in two?
