Made butterbeer with Erika in the evening.
Heath and Pineapple
Sunday 5th September 2021
Afternoon stroll to the heath followed by a visit to the Pineapple.
Monday 6th September 2021
An apple on the tree was looking particularly red already, so we decided to have the first of the season today.
Tuesday 7th September 2021
Had a Negroni out in the garden at aperitivo hour.
Thursday 9th September 2021
Went to the dentist again this morning, which meant lunch at Oliveto afterwards.
Erika's Birthday
Friday 10th September 2021
Rather a quiet one this year - we somehow didn't really get our act together to organise anything. So it was just the three of us - present opening in the morning, cake after Erika got back from school, and sushi for dinner in the evening.
Saturday 11th September 2021
Nice warm day - had watermelon in the afternoon.
Go Ape
Sunday 12th September 2021
As a birthday treat we took Erika and her friend to Go Ape in Alexandra Palace for some swinging about in the treetops.
The Surprise Eruption of Mount Hampstead
Tuesday 14th September 2021
Strange conditions on the heath this evening: an evening mist, couple with the pink skies of sunset, somehow combined to make it look as though a volcano was erupted over in Hampstead.
Breaky Bottom and Jagariko
Wednesday 15th September 2021
After work drinks and nibbles in the garden: Breaky Bottom and Jagariko (a kind of Japanese crisps which are very moreish).
Sunset on the Heath
Friday 17th September 2021
Headed to the heath for the sunset - not quite as dramatic as the volcanic eruption earlier this week, but still quite a nice one nonetheless.
Saturday 18th September 2021
Went to Frank's for the first and last time this year.
Sunday 19th September 2021
Once more lit the big stick candle in the garden this evening.
Monday 20th September 2021
Had some churros after dinner.
Tuesday 21st September 2021
Erika has started a woodworking class, and I went to pick her up from it in the early evening.
Autumn Equinox
Wednesday 22nd September 2021
Today was the autumn equinox, so I got up early today to go and watch the sunrise from Hampstead Heath. Then went back later to catch the sunset as well.
Friday 24th September 2021
Candles in the garden once again.
Lunch on Ditchling Beacon
Saturday 25th September 2021
Took the train down to Hassocks, and repeated a circular walk from last summer, up to Ditchling Beacon and back again.
Lunch with Friends
Sunday 26th September 2021
Sunday lunch with our local friends, then a tour of a local yard sale in the afternoon.
Tuesday 28th September 2021
Quick walk to the heath, went to pick Erika up from her woodwork class, then candles in the garden again later on.
Mellow Fruitfulness
Wednesday 29th September 2021
Surveying the state of the fruit bearing flora in the garden - surprisingly we actually seem to have a couple of tomatoes!
Wine Tasting on the Heath
Thursday 30th September 2021
Another early evening stroll to the heath. Have decided to start writing wine tasting notes, so took a little notebook with me.
