Tipping point

I thought it was just heavy clouds that were making recent evenings seem dark anomalously early, but it isn't, is it?

The nights really are drawing in. I visited Alizon yesterday, but had to decline an invitation to join her and Andy for a meal, as I didn't have my bike lights with me and it was already appreciably gloomy by about 19:45. I've been working away from Lancaster (in Nottingham, Liverpool and Manchester, since you didn't ask) this week, which has required me to leave home at about 07:30 each morning, and I noticed the sun was still very low by then. There were dead leaves on the Hala-Bailrigg cyclepath this morning, and a dew so heavy as to resemble frost. Blackberries began ripening in the hedgerows a couple of weeks ago.

Autumn is my favourite season (with Spring a close second), but I don't want to say 'goodbye' to Summer just yet!


Did I see you on the train yesterday in a suit BTW?

Heh. On Wednesday, I presumed the dress code was going to be formal, but when I reached the station in a suit, I found my colleagues had considered it best to dress down to visit a web consultancy.
On Thursday, I dressed similarly, but found that the same colleagues had chosen suits for a visit to our peers in other universities, so I managed to misjudge it twice!
