Great suggestions so far - thanks!

Now can anyone recommend any shopping-related places (bearing in mind the whole limited-budget thing)?

There are quite a few street markets like Portobello Road (Notting Hill or Ladbroke Grove stops on the tube), Camden Market, Borough Market, or if you fancy checking out a Harry Potter film site there is Leadenhall covered market near Liverpool Street station. This has cobbled streets, Victorian ironwork and an eclectic mixture of shops, cafés, restaurants and stalls.

Ooooo! I just found another opportunity to walk for hours and get terribly lost! Either Thursday afternoon or Friday morning I think I'll go wandering down to Lyme Park, another filming location for Pride and Prejudice. Involves lots of walking and really vague streets. Adventure awaits! The wilderness must be explored! :lol:

Anyone else want to go? I do not guarantee I know what I'm doing, but I do have a map and a compass. Will buy a round for the survivors.

Hmmm - doesn't that give you an incentive to lose most of them?

Nope, because I got a bonus at work and how could it possibly be better spent?

After having slept on it, I think I'll go look at the library on Thursday and do this on Friday, when I've had some sleep. Will have a clearer head.

Edit: Squeee!!!! I'm so excited!!!1 :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :sunny: :sunny: :sunny: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Well, sadly, my dodgy knee won't permit me to come on a long walk with you, but I'll meet you in the bar afterwards and you can squee all about it :)

10 days ago I had to choose between preparing for the Convention and preparing for our forthcoming GMC inspection.

I hope the GMC won't be too disappointed.
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

Okay! :sunny: I'll want to tell my story, I'm sure, of getting lost and somehow ending up in Denmark instead...
