Christmas comes ever earlier in Lewisham

Lewisham Christmas LightsI’m tired and a little lacking in inspiration today so, for my quota post, I’ll give you something I noticed at the weekend. We may be enjoying a balmy Indian summer in London right now, with temperatures still reaching the early 20s, but Lewisham council are determined to boost us forwards into the depths of winter.

Yes, as you can see from the pic, the Lewisham Christmas decorations went up on Friday, over two months before the event in question. The weekend provided us with the bizarre sight, in British terms, anyway, of people wandering around in jeans and a t-shirt with Christmas decorations overhead. A late summer and an early Christmas have finally met.

This picture, incidentally, is from my new Nokia 6680, my first personal mobile phone in over half a decade. I’m amazed at the quality of snaps you can pull off the thing.
