1 embarrassing memory
When Walkmans were new my father went out and bought one for my younger sister – it wasn’t her birthday, he just wanted to get her one. (They cost some enormous amount at that time – I’ve got the figure of £75 in my mind, although that may be wrong.) I sulked until he went out and bought me one too. I was 21 at the time.

(I am of course tagging 0 other bloggers.)

    Somers Town? Jeez, that’s a weird one. I pass by there all the time: my daughter’s at nursery school just off Agar Grove. It’s not somewhere I’d pick. But then, I’d pick Kingsland High Street. Especially on Xmas Day when all the Turkish restaurants are open and packed.
