Seen on the Tube

Northern Line - Hampstead to Bank
  • Five pairs of Converse plimsolls - blue, lilac, cream, green and grey.
  • A family with lilting Geordie accents, hauling enormous suitcases off the train at Kings Cross.
  • Many prettily wrapped bunches of Mothering Sunday flowers - always in the arms of young men or middle-aged ladies.
  • Grandparents saying goodbye to grandchildren who were immersed in their books.
  • Two pairs of sunglasses perched on top of heads.
  • A young man wearing swimming trunks and a denim jacket.  Couldn't help but stare in appreciation curiosity.
  • A pretty teenager with four bright felt flowers in her hair.
  • A man reading a Japanese e-book on a Kindle.

  1. I'm curious about the swimming trunks and jacket too now!

  2. Are we too old for felt flowers, do you think? I often wonder. As, you know, I get older.

  3. Swimming trunks and a jacket? In April?? The mind boggles!!

  4. So happy to be back in my Converse sneakers--spring is definitely here!
