with the changing of the seasons i’d be treated to my very own change of backdrop outside my window. summer brought with it knees kissed by the warmth of the sun and tanned shoulders, beers drunk outdoors and pimm’s. autumn a  rainbow hue of coloured leaves turning from green to orange to yellow and hair-tucks under cosy scarves. spring a promise of hope, fresh air, and renewed life for blooms and buds. finally, winter the frosty mistress, a blanket of pure white snow, covering all our sins.

one day our friends wanted to visit the tower of london, so we shamelessly self-invited ourselves and crashed their date. they lived in the borough of tower hamlets (i think) so we scored tickets at one quid, compared to a bajillion pounds £24.50. ONE QUID! (eveything seems like a million pounds compared to one quid).
