London fish balance

London skyline from Waterloo Bridge. (Click for whole picture)

Three young women are walking with push chairs side by side in The Grove.  As I pass I hear one say: "Families are like fish: they go off after a few days."

Walking towards me up Grosvenor Road is a young man in a leather jacket. Round his neck is a baby sling with a very small baby pressed against his chest. In one hand is a take-away coffee and in the other is a sandwich. He is walking slowly and very carefully.

I'm doing a comment here to see whether it picks up my new blogonym. Ah ha, yes it does.

New blog is now established and - alas - is attracting comments. see WW for link

Try as I might I do not seem able to post a comment on Mr da Ponte's blog. I wanted to say that as someone who is not tone deaf but cannot sing in tune (is there a word for this condition?), I probably qualify as a model follower. I wait with interest to see if anyone, inspired by the name, Da Ponte, sets his words to music.

I think it was a temporary Google glitch. Mrs LdP also had problems. Now, OK
