Southbank Stroll

Me and some pals wanned to do something t’other night. It was a Friday. We’d finished work for the week. It felt right to celebrate getting through another laborious week in the office.

Scone With the Wind at Brixton Village

Brixton on a sunny Saturday morning is something that can’t really be described. It has to be seen, smelt, tasted and heard to really understand it. As you step off the tube and wander towards Brixton Village you’re confronted by TFL workers embracing and laughing as they take over from each other on shifts, 90s R’n’B  blaring out of an enormous butchers where queues of people are lining up for chops, gospel music and shouting as preachers attempt to inspire those  ...
