Went shopping in Kentish Town High St today, 7 thrift shops and 7 empty shops but some very upmarket spice/deli shops.
Bought loads of usually unobtainable gastronomic essentials and then popped into Lidl for cheap bacon,
then off to see my old mate Michael,
The self proclaimed Mayor of Kentish Town.
He was telling me the woes of the High St and Brexit and stuff, he's backing JC,
I pointed out that the bank next door had closed where he extended 'illegally his party venue into their back-yard....
15213
He's not slow, is our Micheal view the b*llsh*t below:......
"The hair division of Flaxon Ptootch has been the backbone of all that happens here since way back in the last millenium.
Our policy of high quality, low maintenance haircutting, comprehensive colour range, attentive service,
and unique customer care makes us a pillar of the hairdressing mecca that is Kentish Town.
...
A Good Day in the suburbs... 8)
Ps: Iv'e yet to come across a better stocked bar in a 'hairdressers, he has contacts..........
They even have a bar up the road in the old Public Toilets, 'tastefully called Ladies & Gents.

Good thing about Sim is she doesn't let a simple thing like a hangover stop
her consuming half bottle of Sancerre and 2 whiskies...

Another good thing is, she wouldn't let me pay the bill... 8)

Did you enjoy your raclette grill evening?

Strangely we enjoyed a similar meal at the Swiss Restaurant in El Gouna the other week.
Now back here in France we were given a grill unit for a present so with raclette being readily available we are cooking meat cuts, veggies and the cheese. A bit of fun and theatre at the table. Reminds me of the Fondu parties from the 70's.
