Lea colours

Cycling on the Lea towpath again.

Very anxious this morning, worrying about the hot water issue at the flat. But managed to get hold of the plumbers that had done the bathroom and they're booked in for tomorrow morning.

Morning nice and sunny, so breakfast outside before the cooler clouds rolled in. Went for a long cycle to the Olympic park, circling round the old stadium and onto the Lea towpath, boasting lots of colourful street art.

Had intended to get a smoothie or cake from my favourite Lea vegan café Mother Works, but found it had gone. So a smoked salmon and scrambled egg on sourdough from The Breakfast Club had to do instead.

Home to back up photos, have an early supper and head out to the Enfield session. Usual small crew augmented by the guy celebrating his 60th birthday with a group of friends in the corner. Normally our sessions clear out the pub but this lot were well up for it. Birthday boy got a cab home to collect his bodhran so he could join in. Smashing stuff.

3 good things
1. The Olympic park - my happy place, remembering our lovely London Olympics.
2. Karelian pasties for supper.
3. A real old school pub - hard to find these days.

Great bit of street art. I would kill for some Karelian pasties (mum calls them pirakkas? spelling), and a real old school pub too!
