gloves? mince pies? already?
A couple of signs of the changing seasons.
First was the appearance as a 'Free Gift' in a cycle magazine subscription of a pair of gloves.
They are actually quite snuggly, although it seems slightly early to be wearing them. I've another pair that I normally use for cycling which are thicker and waterproof, but these are very compact and could easily find a place in the pockets of a jacket.
The second item was the first proper sighting of mince pies, this time in Tescos. The example perched on one of the gloves includes a splash of brandy in it, so I guess that's another warming device. I noticed that their 'best before' date is sometime in November, so these are clearly pre-season examples.
No prizes for guessing what happened next to that particular pie.
