Prior to this we'd had running battles with the police almost every saturday along bromley highstreet and we'd often nip through where the gardens were built and escape to Shortlands...
Haha! Yes, I knew 'Napoleons' didn't sound right Over forty years ago now but good times there used to be a shoe shop half way down the high street on the left, it had a flat above it that was opened as a youth drop in called the Bromley Y Project. That was about the same time. Plus the Croydon greyhound on a Sunday night. And my local was the star and garter....You mean Bonapartes in Market Square?
They're opening a few of these mini Ikeas but the emphasis is on planning the kitchen etc rather than actually buying stuff to take home. It's not a bad idea from my point of view - we've had a few Ikea kitchens and it's a PITA to make appointments and then trek out to Croydon to do the whole planning shebang when we already know which kitchen we want. Who knows how they will work out though?Really? I think that will suffer from lack of parking even more than Lidl. People don't want to lug their flat-pack furniture to the nearest car park.
Who is Sparks?Looks good, but I don't think I can make it.
In other news I have just found out that both Julie Andrews and Sparks lived in Beckenham (not in the same house!)
I'm no Sparks expert. They have an enormous back catalogue and I don't know most of it. They had some huge hits around the same time as This Town, The Number One Song in Heaven is pretty good. Proper Moroder-style disco synths.was thinking today, whats that tune This Town Aint Big ENough for the Both of Us?
Turns out its Sparks! remembered your post. such a mad tune....dont suppose youve got a couple of Sparks tracks tips?
