We're properly on the verge of winter now and I am working my fingers off making new things for a local Christmas fair, But sometimes it's good to get out, so Joe took me to Squirrel Park, where I was promised - well, squirrels.
And there they were, looking ridiculously seasonal and doing proper squirrel things with nuts.
Bounding about with enviable energy.
Not only burying nuts, but finding hidden stashes...
...and having an early nibble.
Although we hadn't done any bounding about, the wind was getting up and the afternoon darkening. So as I was in need of a little sustenance myself, we headed over to Patisserie Valerie (again), where Joe treated us to hot chocolate brownies and double chocolate gateaux. Because winter needs cake. Or nuts, if you're a squirrel.
