Yesterday we had the first bruise of a temperature drop. I felt it on my knees.

At exactly 5.55pm today we had absolute confirmation of a seasonal shift, a gale blew around my legs and I remarked on this with two other chilly looking women at the traffic lights.

The seasonal change was abrupt. It took place in a very noticeable 60 minutes and the duration of a cup of tea with Ita.  Ita’s tea was undrinkable, mine wasn’t too bad. The distance between two teabags and two seasons felt keenly there.

It is now very dark outside. Autumn is with us. I am taking out the hot water bottles and thinking of hot cider recipes.

I have read so much this week on renal ultrasounds and renal function that I could participate in a quiz show on the topic. Did you know for example that your right kidney is lower than your left kidney? And on to duplex, duplicates, duplicity. Renal aaah.
