    I've more or less stopped photographing a lot of the stuff I used to snap around Brixton now.

    Looked more like film crew camera's. Probably something exciting like the roast potato issues or whatever.

    I'd watch live roast potato funnelling in action.

    Didn't get anything. Good range of shoes in size 11 though. I do need some new work shoes.

    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    Yes, have been 2 or 3 times (we are very close to it). It's pretty good stuff - slightly more ambitious in style than Seven in Market Row - not my preferred style of tapas (slightly too much use of mayonnaise for my liking) but when they get it right it can be very good. Good range of beers and sherries by the glass; very friendly folk running it.

    I went to TK Maxx on Saturday. I will not be going again. I also went for shoes, work shoes to be precise. Vile and not cheap.

    Thing about TK Maxx, ime, is that it's better to be a regular and go there pretty often just to see what they've got in new.

    I didn't buy anything this time, but I know they will be getting new stuff in pretty regularly, so I will be going again.

    Too expensive and small portions. I don't like it too much.

    I went in and it was fairly sane compared to how I remember their stores, but it was a Monday afternoon.

    I bought some trainers.

    It's an odd day in the Nigel if there isn't a bloody film crew or three in there soaking up some of the colour.

    I went to TX Maxx twice in the last week in Clapham Junction. The sizes on the hangers seem to bear no relation to the actual clothes hanging on the hangers, not in the womens section anyway.

    Also went looking for shoes in both TX Maxxs with no joy

    Tell us some more about the trainers; I'm assuming they weren't in fact espedrelles? Apols for the dreadful spelling there....

    They're not that interesting. Just a pair of Karrimor trainers for £25.

    I'm a Spanish native. Trust me If I said that they are TOO small, specially if you are paying for them.

    Apart of this, the taste of the food is very good except iberian ham and spanish omelette.

    Tapas in Granada (free with a drink):

    I'd be much obliged if any thunder storm or rain could wait until after 6pm so I can cycle home without getting soaked. Thankyouplease.

    Greebo 'scuse me, Mrs May, can I have my country back? R.I.P.

    Thundering now but it might finish before you get out of work. :)

    I just hope you remember to uncross everything before trying to cycle home.

    No wonder there was thunder, fucked up our weekend weather that Clegg has. In addition to everything else.

    So does anyone know if the playground at Brockwell park is officially opening on Friday?
