The park, 11:23
Overnight it snowed, and so this morning we get a glimpse of winter. I go for a walk to see the snow. I walk across to the park with the children’s playground where I used to take Auo.
The stream has partially frozen, with a thin layer of ice on top like a translucent crust. A log lies in the middle. I look at it as my cheeks start to feel the cold.
The snow will remain on the ground all day and then completely disappear in the night. I will notice that, for the first time that I can remember, nobody has needed to grit the roads and pavements so far this winter.
In the evening we will find another two episodes of Good Karma Hospital to watch, which will cause us to spend the entire time in a good mood.
