    Ha, now that would be a story given she was neutered a decade ago. The immaculate cat-ception..?!
    Aw, kittens!

    If you've after some "mindfulness meditation for businesses and individuals" and want to "be in the present moment and live your lives more fully" and have £125 burning a hole in your pocket, this is for you.

    Mindfulness

    It says....

    Sorry to see the Ye Olde Bakery seems to have closed for good. There's a notice in the window saying they found things difficult after the move and a fire in the kitchen seems to have been the final straw. Such a shame for them :-(

    Absolutely awful for an established employer like that to have gone down the pan through no fault of their own.

    It does say they hope to be back. I used to shop there quite a bit so I hope they do manage to return.

    I thought they had rebranded as artisan craft loaf house or whatever it's called, round the other side of the arches, or is that a different business?

    yes they had, but they had a fire a few weeks ago.

    I also thought they were coming back - but I was just saying to RubyToogood that since they moved to the other side I never go in there any more - I doubt it gets as much passing through footfall on that side.

    Do you tell the woman at Off the Cuff of your association with u75?

    And if so, how did she react?

    editor Taffus Maximus

    I don't think she's around any more. I chat to the owner quite a bit if I'm there and he knows I'm involved in u75. He appreciated the review I gave them and the subsequent publicity I've posted on Buzz.

    Esp after they had a refurb recently. What a waste of money.

    I went off them a few years back when a friend saw mice all over the baskets in the windows at night.

    Any info on when the refurb works will be completed?

    I feel sorry for that lovely used furniture shop in the corner. Did the relocate anywhere nearby?

    Oh that's good to hear. I only ever bought once from them but I like them a lot, and the wares they sell.

    It was called Bleu. He opened Mor Bleu on Dulwich Road a while ago (more upmarket). Recently told me that he's intending to get one of the new arches after refurb. He's a good businessman - even if that doesn't work out he'll sort something out. I'm not sure that the retail side of things was the main part of his business anyway.

    I think Perks & White ( the best coffee in HH, or perhaps tied with Roome!) won the tender to get their old stall back in the station. Although, apart from the occasional drain smells, I've liked having it temporarily in Off The Cuff.

    Helicopter circling for past 10 mins or so. Makes me feel edgy having above - apart from the fact they seem to crash too often - I wonder what/who they're looking for... an escaped murderer?!!

    It may have been part of the continuing investigation into this serious crime.

    Do you think that's likely?

    At least we were spared the out of context quotes in massive letters this time.

    Had a brilliant day in the regent yesterday.

    £6 lunch, beer, read all the electioneering leaflets, more beer, read a couple of newspapers, political discussion, went to vote, more beer. Friends joined us, more political debate, other locals dropped by, more political chat, more beer, met a marvelous 81 year old who started a sing song, more beer, then a kebab on the way home. Can't recall when I enjoyed an election day more.

    Are you sure about that? Looks to me like they've just been refurbing the front. They've uncovered old Beers Wine & Spirits painted shop signage.
