A Sunday Stroll

Last Sunday, I visited Earl’s Court, a district in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Back in 2011, when I moved to London, Earl’s Court was my first home in the UK. 

Since moving back to London last November, I hadn’t returned to my old hood. On Sunday, the weather was decent, so I headed out to Earl’s Court. I bumped into some friends I hadn’t seen in a few years, which is always pleasant. 

I ended up strolling through Brompton Cemetery, where I used to go every day for my walk. There are several notable people buried in Brompton, but given that last Thursday was International Women’s Day, I’ll give a shout-out to Emmeline Pankhurst, a suffragette who helped paved the way for women to get the right to vote. 


Here are some other photos:

Back in London

Over the holidays I moved back to the UK. While I enjoyed my time in Dublin, I’m thrilled to be in London.

The last month or so has been action-packed, but slowly I’m getting back into a routine that involves writing and time to reacquaint myself with the city I fell in love with when I moved to London in 2011.

Here are some recent photos I took during my wanderings.

What’s that in the window?

I consider myself a donut connoisseur. My only qualification for the fancy title is I like donuts. Love them, actually.

When I moved to Dublin, one of the first things I noticed while out and about was how many donut places there were. Seriously. I mentioned this once to my partner, who doesn’t have a sweet tooth, and she just stared at me blankly. How does one not notice donut shops?

So, imagine my surprise, when I was on my usual route to St. Stephen’s Green for my afternoon walk when I spied some donuts in a window. I’d walked by the shop countless times and never noticed them before. If you imagined my head whipping to the side, with my mouth dangling open, all the while ramming into a trash can and almost flipping over it, you’d be spot-on.

I straightened and kept walking as if that hadn’t happened.

I’ve been making changes to my life lately. Eating right. Exercising more. Getting to bed earlier. You know, all the stuff the so-called experts say I should do.

Part of me was proud of my recovery, and by that, I mean not marching into the shop to purchase a donut.

And if you think I stopped to buy one on my way home, you’d be wrong.

I bought three.

But I’m not completely at fault. On my way home, it started to pour. Dublin weather is capricious. I had to pop inside the donut shop during the deluge. And the woman behind the counter insisted I purchase a chai latte and donuts.

For the next two mornings, I skipped my usual fresh berries and yogurt, and had a donut with my tea. Then I went for extra-long walks.
