    That's a shame. She was a LEGEND at the Phoenix with a photographic memory of your orders!

    I still miss Grainne and Amber and they've not worked there for years! They were good on the phenomenal memory for orders too. I went in once asking if a mate of mine had been in, said his name, described him and they looked a bit blank until I said, "Strong mug of tea, no sugar and a teaspoon for the no-cal sweetener." and then they knew exactly who I meant and precisely when he'd been in :)

    she's been replaced by this tall, polite/well spoken young lad. He seems to be getting the hang of it. But he's no Madge...yet!

    I know I'm not supposed to clog this thread up with child-centric stuff, but that new playground in Brockwell Park is amazing!

    I know an urbanite who when very drunk, despite being told in no uncertain terms to not be so stupid, insisted on leaving the Albert to buy some weed.... came back with an 8th of clingfilm wrapped bark.

    There was a report on the Radio 4 Today programme (Saturday edition). On listen again it starts around 1 hour 17 minutes in.
