One thing I did enjoy this week was a walk around Crystal Palace park with a friend. The park is a little oasis in South London with all sorts of surprises...including dinosaurs by a lake and Sphinxes overlooking the city...
|Mysterious Sphinx, innit?|
|Who you looking at?|

In addition there were the usual Throwback Thursdays and I introduced Waiting on Wednesdays, I also started my book buying ban and tracked how I did with that!
