THANK YOU everyone for humoring me! As you can see, it doesn’t take a lot for me to be amused. And contrary to what you may think I haven’t been holding out on you on purpose – I have a really packed schedule at the moment and haven’t had a chance to get online before now.

I’m delighted with all your guesses. A lot of them have given me food for thought and/or blog posts. And amazingly, the one false fact was one that only one person guessed. And no, it wasn’t number one.

It was number eight. I have never been the victim of a purse snatching on the London Underground. [Touch wood.] Well done JB!

The rest are all true.

And it’s quite lovely at the moment, too, a cold northern sun shining on the city, the ground all wet and the air clear and fresh. Mt. Esja across the bay all white with snow. Temps are currently 3°C and sunrise was at 10.19 [yikes!] and sunset is due for 16.08.
