    I guess 31 September is akin to the 12th of never?

    They've been rebuilding the islandy bollard road calming thing by the bridge so it feels like it's coming to an end.

    Not that I'm holding my breath.

    That was kind of my thought as I walked up to Elmcourt Pharmacy yesterday: "Looks like they're nearly done. Probably be another year, though". :)

    So after all the big upping here I went to BOB wines to get a bottle for a friend's birthday. It has a lovely feel and a nice (but small) cider collection. The French guy serving was very nice too. I liked it in there. Plus they do massive bags of Salty Dog crisps which are lovely. We don't actually buy a lot of wine these days so I think the odd bottle from there wouldn't break the bank.

    I went to go in and there was a sign saying nipped out for a bit....

    So I looked at the beers on the shelf (through the window) and nipped across co-op and got the same ones cheaper.

    I'm new to this craft beer thing, so I've tried a few this weekend. Went to that place in Streatham, by the station. Lots of choice. No idea what I am looking at, so just buying at random and trying stuff.....

    Art and Craft? At Streatham Hill? They’ve got one opposite the Great North Wood as well. Such a range of prices. Some cans £4 and others £1.50 and nothing really to differentiate them. I try to go for the lowest cost / highest alcohol ratio with poncey name / description as a tie breaker.

    That’s the one. I have been off the booze for September, but in August it was my favourite beer.

    It's incredibly tasty. A bit of a change from the over-hopped IPAs every British "craft brewer" has been offering for the last couple of years.

    I don't drink beer at all and hardly ever wine - so I'm not likely to be their target customer tbf. I do like a nice cider from time to time though and it's nice to be able to give a nice bottle to other people as a gift.

    Nowhere seems to have a good selection of ciders nowadays, except online places. :(

    I went into Bobs wines on Friday, nice friendly staff and a good selection of wine. I got a bottle from their refillable tanks which was a decent blend and very nice. Also grabbed a bottle of Crocera Barbera, an Italian favourite that I usually drink in The Eagle in Farringdon. The Eagle charge about £20, both bottles from Bobs were £8.50. Very reasonable for a decent drink.

    They don't do much that's cheaper than that, which is fair enough, they're a good wine shop, and you can get cheap plonk in the Supermarkets. Reckon I'll still be getting my cheap Malbecs etc from Majestic and using Bobs for the good stuff.

    If you're gonna do it anywhere - might as well be in a charity shop for the blind

    They probably just thought "one of our own" and never gave it a second thought

    A not particularly quick-witted mate back in the '80s used to get some of his kicks going into the RNIB shop in Putney, and turning all the books so that the spines were upside down. It took about 3 hours of hard work to eventually explain to him that while the recipients of the money the shop made were blind, many of the people who bought stuff - including books - from the shop, were sighted. :facepalm:
