If you want to discover yet another use for a cargobike, try getting it to wake you up in the morning. Rub the sleep from your eyes, wash your face, grab your keys and you're off. No-one's going to notice if you're still in your pajamas: just make sure they're warm enough and add a jacket. You're discovering what all or most of those dog walkers you'll see know already. Walking and cycling activates the valves in the leg veins, pumping your sleepy circulation to send oxygenated blood up to wake your brain. Neat if you ask me - and no effort.

Seen in the canteen

Close to where I was sitting with my veg stir fry and rice, a couple stood clutching paper towels and feverishly mopping up a water spill from their table top. Satisfied that it was dry enough for them to sit down and eat, the man went off to bin the towels while the woman pulled out her chair and sat down. The man then came back, sat down briefly, and both of them got up again, moved close and wrapped their arms around each other for a hug. Only then did they sit down and continue with their meal.

In London, just off a main thoroughfare, you'll find the big sky and the more domestic city.

2016 was so laden wth scary headlines that by December I was left wondering what had happened to my own 'headlines', the events in my own life?
- flying to Madrid as possibly the last Englishwoman of my generation to visit Spain (I've just never fancied it)
- building a LED light sculpture without electrocuting myself
- turfing out a rat that had the idea of setting up home in my studio (there is just No Room I told it), etc.

2017 has got to be different. For a start I need to get rid of these default Blogger headings. I have a feeling that joining Blog Club is going to be extremely useful . . ..
