AdAm refused to put on deodorant this morning because it’s a Saturday, so I had to launch a surprise attack with my perfume, using the skills I acquired when I had to put flea spray on Sydney. Really not what you need with a hangover. BUT all that unpleasantness is in the past now, it’s […]Read more "Victoria Park, 25th November"
The day got off to a bad start at breakfast when I asked if anyone wanted a cup of tea and dad asked for a coffee. Typical. Then I went to see a couple of flats and realised just how far my standards have slipped since this whole sorry process began. Popped in to see […]Read more "The London Boroughs of Hackney and Islington, 18th November"
On the 2100 to Norwich travelling cattle class with the other common folk. Walked past the smug bastards in first class and made sure I gave them a glare or two. We all know they’re only there because they booked last minute and it was £2 more expensive. Update: someone has brought a crying baby […]Read more "Greater Anglia rail service, 10th November"

How am I supposed to appreciate the full majesty […]Read more "Finsbury Park, 6th November"

Decided to go for a Halloween curry with AdAm and his friends sophie and ali. Ali chose the restaurant – he said it was a 6/10, but that we’d probably find it an 8/10 due to our untrained western taste buds. I expected it to be the usual dull/excruciatingly gruesome medical chat but it turns […]Read more "Tayyab’s, Whitechapel, 31st October"
Went out for dinner at this Turkish place on upper street with Bella and Katie. It was called Gallipoli (I presume after the disastrous military campaign of 1915-16). B & K are vegetarians so we had to get vegetarian meze. i.e. NO MEAT. I wasn’t happy about it, but sometimes you have to make sacrifices […]Read more "Gallipoli, Upper Street, 26th October"
