    Challenge yourself to make tomorrow different. A walk around the garden. An hour in a chair outside but by the door.... Then think about your feelings. Then ask yourself "why?" Seven times when you analyse your fears. This is a pretty good drill ...

    It looks as though Peak Freans is being demolished. You can see the building from the trains going into London Bridge. If you go to Peak Freans - exploring Southwark - you get more info. From the writing point of view, you have all the smells ...
