Another weekend over – and for October, it was a very pleasant and sunny one. G and I continued our monthly walks around London and did a four and a half mile walk, which was really nice and we walked by the Grand Union Canal and through lots of really nice park areas and so on. We did mange to fit in drinking a cup of tea along the way as well, so that was good too. G had always been a bit mixed in terms of enthusiasm for walking but seems to have got far more into the spirit of it of late. This is probably a good thing as we are thinking about ascending Ben Lomond next year.
You may have noticed that there is a financial crisis going on at the moment and so if you want to give to others in a rather low cost way to you (i.e. it costs a small bit of time, but no money) then you could try the free rice game and give rice through the UN Food Programme and test your general knowledge at the same time. Alternatively, if you want to try and get a £10 Amazon voucher, then if you look at this thread on Martin’s Money Tips, it tells you a way that you can do that.
In other news, I am over a third of the way through War and Peace and am still enjoying it. If I carry on at this rate, I should have it read in about six weeks time. That is quite a lot of reading still to go...
