Spent a very pleasant day visiting some friends in Sudbury yesterday. It was one of those lovely late autumn days where the sunlight seems to make every colour super-saturated, and the cold makes the air feel fresher and denser at the same time. It's a nice Suffolk market town and we took a walk on the water meadows. On the drive home I finally tried out the cruise control function on the car, which we've now had for six months. It's cool. It feels like someone else is driving.
