A Postcard from Timperley

This is just a ‘catch-up’ posting of a few recent pictures that many people might nowadays put on Facebook.

But here there’s no advertising…

Autumn colours by the canal continue to delight.

Saturday morning: parkrun number 315 at Wythenshawe, under Oliver’s watchful eye.

Jeanette and Sue have taken to walking around the 5 km course in about 40 minutes. This protects them from injury and facilitates a good natter.

Sunday: A visit from Jacob and Jessica.

Mummy (Kate) has a birthday on Monday, so we’d better make her some cakes.

This is Jessica’s design masterpiece.

The trains at Walton Park were operating, but there was no sign of an ice cream van.

Brilliant. Even though I've been out and about a bit over the last week or two I seemed to have missed any of those bright autumn days.

We've not had a lot of sunshine Conrad. In fact the top picture was on a very dull day, but the colours seem to have shone through the gloom this year.

Today's breezes mean that the best of the colours are now from the rainbows, not the leaves.

Hope your op is going well...
