14 October. Last week this was a field. This week it's getting ready to become home to 2,000 new homes. Hence this sign. But I can't cycle past it without imagining that a triffid is going to suddenly appear from the left.
10 October. The week before last we were wearing shorts. This week we're having to contemplate wearing gloves. Winter is on the way, I guess. (Postmen, of course, will carry on wearing shorts regardless, even when it's snowing. Why do they do that?)
