This is the view from my study window where I'm currently typing this post. So I can usually tell whether the radio reports or the TfL updates are right or wrong.
The line not running is great news for Bolli as he sometimes sits on the wall at the back of my garden. The shot below is also from this morning.
He's not quite as brave as he looks from this photo, now that you've seen how close the Tube runs. As the minute he hears the Tube he leaps from the wall and runs indoors. He's just about OK now sitting in the garden when the trains go by but if they go by on the near-side to my wall he'll still leg it indoors.
This is his "train look" where his ears go slightly back and he crouches getting ready to make a quick getaway. More Bolli pictures in this morning's garden set here.
Ah there's a rumble, I've just looked up and the line's running again. It's slow but at least it's working. Bad news for Bolli, good news for me as I'm just off out.
