Saturday again, done the shopping trip...
I managed to access a Boris Bike and cycled to the nearest garden center over in Camden, forget CV19,
I nearly died..upon arrival the queue was 30 long, 's*d that, I only wanted some herbs..
But back ? 'it's mainly all downhill, zooming past the wonderful St Pancras Hotel....

Roads are mainly empty, my main danger seemed to include joggers & other cyclists,
Oh! and the dreaded Pentonville Rd hill..Oh! and electric cars, bu**ers creep up on you....

Back in the village and to The Quality Chop Hse, nice orderly sunny situated queue of just three.
Radishes, couple of ripe smelly cheeses, pork chop, then off to the just reopened Gail's posh
artisan bakery for an olive baguette.

Into my Co-op for some cheap spanish wines, strong ales, weekend Guardian and rolling tobacco.
All done within 2 hours, radio 4 is on just to remind me it's Saturday...

So, I off to the balcony to do some gardening, bloody garden center, I'll buy online, mind you I await
an Amazon delivery today of a fraudster's autobiography who once 'tried to have me over..'as if ?.... 8)

Pss: Here's a good read in the wekkend.

I know that place quite well, very expensive for what it is. Avoid buying on line, they usually send crap half dead plants if you're not one of their members. Being that you are in London, the very best place to go to is Crews Hill, just inside the travel zone, and I suspect you have one of those passes, it costs you,...nowght, train out of St Panras.

The whole place is like garden centres on acid, worth a day out just for the laugh. The best centre of them all is the one on the opposite side from the rail station. When I go there I take a small bag and a very sharp Stanley blade,....that's all you need. Avoid the week-end especially in COVID 19 period, they're all open throughout the week.

P.S. - "Spanish wine",......sherry and port yes,.........wine really ?
