Join me as I ramble my way through Nunhead - though not in the walking boots and cagoule sense obviously.......

Straw Donkeys, Castanets and Awful Ornaments
I'm back! Browner than I was when I went (also a bit pink across the shoulder area due to a sudden Ambre Solaire drought this morning when no-one would buy any more as "there's no point, the flight's in five hours), weighed down with cheesy souvenirs that I wouldn't have bought ordinarily but Mac wanted something "spanish", David wanted some castanets and the ornament (similar to pictured) will look lovely on The Stewarts' mantelpiece and an overwhelming sense of relief that a) Bea didn't do as she threatened on the plane on the way home, b) that Size Zero hell wasn't as bad as I thought thanks to two of my travelling companions and c) that it's all over!
I returned to kisses from David, sleeping hugs from Mac and excited woofing from the dogs. I made it! I survived! Phew!
I'm a mum of one, wife of one and owner to several dogs, a variety of breeds and sizes. I live in the up and coming area (or so they say) of Nunhead and have mad neighbours, strange friends and certifiable relatives.
I shop locally, although I do defect to Sainsburys once a week - shoot me now local shopkeepers.
