Marvelled at quaint De Beauvoir Square with it’s Grand Designs House, Victorian architecture, park and church. Purchased necessary swimsuit, walked cute little Sid, a Patterdale terrier, that my daughter Rae walks professionally, along Canal to crocus filled Haggerston Park. Early evening we went outdoor swimming to London Fields Lido. Bbbbbbrrrr! Water lukewarm and icy breeze between pool and changing room. Lovely to look up at trees and sun setting round about. The hot shower and earl grey tea afterwards was exhilarating. Wonderful. Wouldn’t and couldn’t do this in Scotland on 5th March. Stuffed Portabello Mushrooms and celeriac to follow. Aaaaaah the Good Life!
