Last night was more or less like a normal evening, apart from the prolonged and very loud fireworks at midnight. The two cats who can hear were pretty disturbed. But I found a new thing to look at on the internet! I was interested to see if people were following the stay at home rules, so googled traffic cameras. I found one website which is webcams from all sorts of places around the world, and has different categories such as animals, city, museums and also has a country index. It is called WebCamTaxi I also spent quite some time flicking between the different cameras on the transport for London site. There were parts of London that looked pretty busy with traffic at least, and there were people wandering about in quite a few places. I meant to have a look at some of the places around the world to see them in daylight today but didn't turn the computer on until this evening.

Cold, Cold, Cold!
The walk I had yesterday was bracing, and sunny, and I was not cold even though it was. Today was different. Almost foggy, and the sort of cold that gets right to your bones. We went to the Thames barrier as it is nearby. The river increases the cold factor. We didn't stay that long, but there is always something to take a picture of!
And these too-so perfectly wintery.
This is a friendly looking lock. Like a bear. The bears in here are all accommodated without the tree now, and I have tidied and cleaned and put away the tree and its decorations. This led to other jobs such as sorting out the shoe cupboard and actually putting two pairs in the donate pile. One doesn't fit and the other hurts so out they will go whenever the shops reopen.
Pattern! This post is turning into a school art lesson!
This quiet cyclist is obviously going pretty fast.
