Well, hey there. A cold January day marks my first proper walk of 2018. I put on some weight over Christmas, and a bit more over New Year, so hoping this walking lark will help. The aim for this walk was to finish the last ‘out of town’ section of the District Line, so next … More District Line/Hammersmith & City Line, and food.

Halloween! And on a rare day off together, my friend Jo and I made a start on another of the District Line’s tendrils. Richmond to West Kensington was the plan.
