    Helicopter taking off / landing from the new helipad on top of Kings at the moment. First time I've seen this. Looks like they are doing test runs as it's landed and taken off a couple of times.

    Not without a drastic change to the train service, which is already shoulder-to-shoulder at Loughborough Junction.
    Yeah with that crane still there there's no way it's cleared for regular flights.

    Went to the Hermit's Cave after a particularly stressful day at work. Great pub. It's a proper old school normal pub. Great beer, fire and comfy seats. Long may it continue :thumbs:

    Camberwell's still got a couple of non-twatified boozers. For now. The lucky bastards :D

    There's a banner up outside the hospital saying the helipad is now open, though.

    I just went to the little Tesco on Camberwell New Road. Ahead of me in the queue was one of the members of staff there; he was buying a box of Quality Street. Then I heard someone crying behind me. It was an elderly man who was trying to pay the man for the Quality Street, while the staff member was explaining that no, it was his (elderly man's) birthday and that he'd got them for him as a present. He said yes, it was his birthday and that he was from Germany and that he had no family. I wished him happy birthday and he smiled and cried. Others did. I should have got him a present but it didn't occur to me until after I'd left in tears. Much as I hate Tesco, the staff in that shop are really fucking lovely.

    I'm sure you'll all be pleased to hear that I've moved further down into Camberwell proper, thus ending the debate of whether I live in Camberwell or Denmark hill.

    Oh! It just looked really odd/different. I've been going to camberwell for years and years and have never noticed that space before. Must have had my blinkers on.

    Are there any laundrettes about that are open in the evenings? My new place doesn't have a washing machine, and my flatmate apparently has enough clothes that she hasn't needed one yet. One came up on Google, but the opening times say until 7 and the reviews are all people complaining it's not open even that late.

    I'm a few doors down from Love Walk dry cleaners, but not sure if they do general laundry... and don't want to be a nob and use Laundrapp.

    If you can be arsed to come to Tulse Hill we have about 100! And put a bet on while you're here and eat some fried chicken all of which we have in abundance. Tulse hill is old school.

    This has been bothering me. I looked the other day and I don't recall seeing it so clear up there. There has to me something missing, I thought. Tidied up a bit maybe?
    Checked on street view back to 2008 and it looks the same.
    Very odd! It really does seem more open and suchlike.
