Today I woke up cold. I put on a jumper over a jumper and an extra pair of socks. I made a cup of tea and listened to the radio. The DJ declared the start of an Indian summer and warned of the dangers of prolonged exposure to the sun. A listener texted in, he was skipping work and making a bee line to the beach. I watched the grey-pebble-sky from my window and orange leaves scatter as the DJ announced California Dreamin'.
