September arrived...

...but it seems more like October/November.

As September rolled in, so did the chilly mornings and train problems. Two out of three homeward journeys have been seriously disrupted this week resulting in the dreaded 'cattle truck' mode of transport.

The rail operators are particularly bad at keeping passengers 'informed' on our route so folk become frustrated and short tempered...not the best atmosphere for the journey home. All I could think of was ***and the bad weather hasn't even arrived yet***

On a cheerier note, chilly mornings mean toast or better still - CRUMPETS!!!

There really is nothing nicer than hot buttered crumpets...yummy.

As the evenings are starting to draw in, I'm looking forward to the seasonal flavours at Starbucks but it seems they are trying to hold onto Summer for a bit longer as they have just introduced two new fraps for September.

The folk at the Met-office have promised some warmer weather to come but I don't think I'll be tempted to buy any more icy drinks - bring on the Spiced Pumpkin Lattes......................................

Its starting to get a bit cooler here too Toni.
Sorry to hear about the transportation problems.
Have to say that the crumpets look just like what we call English muffins. Same??
