Today was the big spring clean of James' room. He lives in student accommodation, which is gated and secure. So Ruth needed to stay there last night so she could let me in this morning - James having disappeared for a days worth of medical lectures.
I therefore had Monty to myself last night - quite a surreal experience. The temptation to slob it out was there, but I couldn't be bothered.
So up early this morning and a short bus ride, before joining up with Ruth. We then spent the day cleaning, washing and ironing. At least Ruth did; I assisted.
Then it was time for hugs and kisses goodbye. Ruth and I walked on to Tooting Bec, which was an experience in itself as the area was littered with ethnic shops of all descriptions, many of which were selling food or food related items. Our sort of place.
Caught the No 249 back to Crystal Palace and now warming our toes in Monty.
