Sounds from London

Working from home today – only to relieve the burden on the public transport system. The patio door is open to maintain a link to the garden and city. A robin is singing oblivious to the chaos that brought London to a standstill. Sirens are wailing away in the distance similar to the sounds of West London, yesterday morning. Our office is close to all the emergency services; with stations and the hospital with walking distance. For most of the morning the air was full of noise with the emergency services racing against time. Life continues regardless of the disruption and sorrow that has been forced on the capital. Today the church bells chime down the road, our neighbour’s grandson, a toddler, chats to himself, bees buzz about the flowers – reassuring signs of normality.
