The Ridgeway: Princes Risborough to Lewknor
Saturday 1st February 2020
Completed the section I was planning to complete last weekend (but wasn't quite in the mood before) with much nicer weather today. Albeit still a bit odd to culminate a walk at Junction 6 of the M40! Later on, back in London, I went to catch the sunset from the Angel in Bermondsey.
Sunday 2nd February 2020
Stayed in for the morning. For lunch we went to try the Lady Hamilton (sister pub of the Pineapple) followed by gelato at the new gelateria in Kentish Town.
Monday 3rd February 2020
The day in the Japanese calendar marking the end of winter (or is it the start of spring?) where somebody has to dress up as an "oni" (devil?) and be pelted with dried soy beans.
Tuesday 4th February 2020
Further checks on the state of flowering in the garden, then more futile attempts to take pictures of the night sky later on.
Wednesday 5th February 2020
Made some pretend old paper with Erika using the lemon juice trick. Was quite pleased with the results.
East Meon Berrygarden 2010
Thursday 6th February 2020
Tried the 2010 this evening - much more successful than the previous two bottles (the 2013 and 2014) I'd tried previously!
Friday 7th February 2020
Couple of random photos.
The Ridgeway: Lewknor to Goring
Saturday 8th February 2020
Quite a long walk today - 15 miles - and made it all the way to Goring, although did end up deviating somewhat from the official route of the Ridgeway National Trail to make my own way, closer to the original route of the Icknield Way.
Storm Ciara
Sunday 9th February 2020
Storm Ciara made it a bit of a wet and windy Sunday and we mostly stayed indoors. Just a couple of forays out into the garden between downpours to check on the state of things.
Tuesday 11th February 2020
Padron pepers and Breaky Bottom Cuvee Oliver Minkley this evening.
Hedge and Wolseley
Wednesday 12th February 2020
Trimmed the hedge at the back of the house in the morning, then out for dinner at the Wolseley in the evening.
Thursday 13th February 2020
Went to Nando's after Erika's gymnastics class.

Couple of random pictures.
Saturday 15th February 2020
Day before our half term trip to Switzerland. Wanted to do the next section of the Ridgeway but it was too stormy today, so instead I pottered about at home. In the evening I attempted to use up everything perishable from the fridge for dinner, and came up with a sort of hybrid moussaka / lasagne.
Corrie and Jarrod's Wedding
Saturday 22nd February 2020
Ceremony at Wandsworth Town Hall followed by drinks and nibbles at Lore of the Land in the centre of London.
Sunday 23rd February 2020
It seems I spent as much of it as possible out of the garden. Did some pruning and managed to break my secateurs.
New Secateurs
Wednesday 26th February 2020
Got some new secateurs today. Oh and a new trowel.
Garden and Primrose Hill
Thursday 27th February 2020
Checked on the garden again in the daytime, then in the evening out to a pub in Primrose Hill with the usual suspects.
Friday 28th February 2020
Spent more time in the garden again and had another play with my Biolite stove.
