    Not wanting to be left out of the 'let's all have a local thread' party, I am starting one one for the Herne HIll dwellers. Anyway to kick off...

    I overheard some quite vicious comments directed at the boob-tube and mini-skirt wearing transexual yesterday as she was wandering around Herne Hill market. Thankfully she didn't hear it but it wasn't nice to hear. Of course being a bit of a coward I didn't say anything other than to mutter 'live and let live' under my breath.

    Why do we have all these hyper-local threads? If something happens in Brockwell park, where do we put it? Or does it depend which entrance to the park?!

    I go to the vets every Saturday.

    I hope you were already sitting down when you read that. That level of excitement can be very dangerous.

    I went out in Herne Hill the other day. It was terrifying, people kept trying to kill me for no reason. If only there was somewhere I could hang out that was safe.

    There is a place you can be safe! It's very secret though. Don't tell anyone. Buy a hat and we'll speak some more.

    I still think there should be separate SW2 and SW9 chitter chatter threads :hmm:

    Clearly a need for a Lower Tulse Hill thread

    And I'm Over The Hill.

    But I did have my breakfast in Sesami this morning, and very fine it was too.

    The top end of the edge of Brockwell Park - if estate agents can come up with stupid names for areas, so can I.

    Little family meal at Cafe Provencal on Saturday evening.

    What a lovely place it is, much brighter and lighter post-flood.

    I didn't know it had reopened! Will go investigate.

    The five of us felt we were on holiday - and the girls cartwheeled home across the park!

    I haven't managed to teach the boy to cartwheel yet. Slacker....

    I saw a man who was more or less Gordon Geko last week. Got out of soft top sports car near the station, talking loudly into an ear piece, pink shirt, purple suit, braces. It's gone too far.

    Have they kept the box of broken, dirty toys; my son loves them.

    Are there any toys? It's the only reason we used to go there, nice atmosphere for children as the back was pretty much for families with children and there were toys. I mean they were nice and all but the food was only average.

    Same here - have made two attempts to visit since the flood so glad it's re-opened.

    I went to Cafe Prov the other week but was quite disappointed with the service - waitress was pretty rude/abrupt (I won't bore you with the full story, but in any case, it was probably just because she was very busy!).
    The place does look really nice now they've done it up though (I mean, it was nice before too but just different). I didn't notice if the back was still essentially a playroom as I was by myself that time so had no reason to go looking for the toy box.

    I am pretty much halfway between Brixton and Herne Hill so am going to hover between the two hyper-local threads.

    Any news on the Half Moon from anyone? Last I heard there was still insurance wrangling and no one was sure when (or if) it would reopen :(

    Service was OK. Pretty good Caf Prov salad. Good wine list
