Mudchute City Limits

Today I went with my friend Elfie to Mudchute City Farm, London's largest, on the Isle of Dogs. Stepping out of Mudchute DLR station it felt like countryside, apart from Canary Wharf looming from a distance. Today was extra autumnal, the sky threatening and yellowish, and bonfire smell in the air, which turned out to be coming from the farm itself.

On the way on the DLR

Down a long path to the farm - a bit scary, where IS the farm?

Sheep and Canary Wharf

The ferret that bit me (a little) and tried to get up my sleeve

Chewing on his pen, chew chew chew

Bedtime for sheep - being herded somewhere mysterious

Brilliant goats, they were being very vocal and talking to each other at bedtime - see how exotic the one on the right is? They are Nubian goats

Darn you animals, why won't you stay STILL

Run to the Beat

Yesterday I took part in the Run to the Beat half-marathon, which began and finished at the O2 Centre in Greenwich. It was a really super day, and my first time competing in anything like that. I was happy with my time and enjoyed the whole experience, and if I feel a bit broken and battered today, feel it was totally worth it! This is me, wrapped in my exposure foil at the finish, sporting my favourite new thing - my medal!

Illustration Friday: Acrobat

Some monkeys on a unicycle for Illustration Friday, which I'm finding a really useful and fun thing to try and do each week. I used to have a unicycle, but only ever managed about two metres on it. I couldn't commit to the bruises and fear, but I always envy the people who stuck with it!
