A Walk in the Park

I had the biopsy yesterday and all went well.  I get the results next week.  I seemed to recover quickly although I was tired and slept until 9.30 this morning!
As I had those catnip mice to get to the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, Giles and I got on a train this afternoon and delivered them. After that we went for a walk in Battersea park and had a coffee at the La Gondola café there.

Then we walked back, by a circuitous route along the embankment, over Chelsea bridge...

... and through some housing and shopping areas, to Victoria station, where we got the train home.  It was rush hour by then and the station was MAD and FULL OF PEOPLE and there was standing only on the train for most of the way (although it was only a few stops).  So when we got off the train I had to sit on a bench outside the station and Giles had to get the car and pick me up as I was so tired by then - I felt like AN OLD PERSON, but perhaps I was asking a bit much of myself!

Hopefully I'll complete the draught excluder tonight, or maybe tomorrow.  There's not much to go and the draughts are calling!

Thinking about you and sending you the loveliest thoughts. Sorry to hear about what you're going through .... knitting is the best therapy, yes? Thanks for sharing your wonderful photos.
