On Christmas Eve I always take flowers to a friend. It used to be easy in the car, but since I became eco-minded and gave it up it's now a major operation! Over 4 hours this time.Meanwhile there are things to do at home too… Essex Road Station - not been here before Change at Alexandra Palace And then off into Palmers Green and road after road of suburban houses- typically English. Houses which people turn into little castles - and try to out-do the neighbours! This is not my friends house by the way, just an example. It took so long to get there I thought I would come back another way - this is Edmonton Green where the station was obviously built in the days of steam and short trains! Back to Broadway Market - I am delighted to report that the awful red tree which featured in a blog a couple of weeks back has not been sold and is now only £25! Personally I think 50p would be too much! And finally domesticity and my lovely Santa.
