Would you believe it?

I caught little M (17) playing Lynyrd Skynrd’s ‘Freebird’ this morning. It only seems 5 minutes since I was off out buying it myself. Nor was I much older than he is now.

I suddenly feel very, very old!


I forgot to mention the object of the bus trip; to reach the pub in New Cross. Which we did…after taking the picturesque route. Any subsequent stirrings of the Spirit which I may have experienced back home at church later in the evening will sadly have to be put down to trying to down a large bottle of Samuel Smith’s organic cider in about 15 minutes flat. That and the sugar-free sweeties.

An exciting Sunday

St Paul's seen from Nunhead Cemetery

If you look ever so carefully you can JUST glimpse the dome of St Paul’s in the distance. Wandering around Nunhead Cemetery of a Sunday morning was a whole new experience for us. As was lunch at whatever place it was in Dulwich. And the scenic tour of Peckham, Nunhead, Dulwich and New Cross on the top of a double-decker bus. Wanderings round various gift shops. Another visit to the Purveyors of Fine Confectionary – Hope and Greenwood (beware their sugar-free sweets. I’ll leave you to guess why!).

Nevertheless, a good time was had by all. At least, we had a good time. I assume Ms Miffy had a good time also. Although we’re still awaiting notification that she survived her subsequent perilous journey into central London dressed as a pirate for that night’s fancy-dress party.
