Why I love SW London..

IMG_2442Because even though it’s only 10 minutes from Victoria we see green every day.

IMG_2443Which means popping out for a pint of milk is a simple pleasure.

IMG_2370And for some strange reason we are surrounded by huge  Laburnum trees with their evocative smell that lingers everywhere: Our equivalent statement scent to orange blossom.

IMG_2353And we get to walk past this to and from school each day.

IMG_2349And disappear in it.

And we can decide whether to cheer George and his freedom on..or commiserate with the obvious unrequited love of his owner. Hell, I’m not sure if I saw a furry animal of this size my first thought would be ‘Guinea-pig..must find owner’..

IMG_2496 And the playground on the Common becomes our in-child-care-hours Office. No computers allowed.

IMG_2498 IMG_2495 Until a certain person (Charlie) knocks over all the squash..or someone (all of them) needs a wee..IMG_2499And it’s time to go home.

    These images are absolutely gorgeous! And to see two lovely writers in the grass surrounded by actual paper and holding actual pens (instead of computers) – love it!

    You make it look so lovely! I live in SW London and have never really thought about the beauty of where I live. Maybe I need to explore more.
