seven good things

righty, a small return to blogging, thanks to merrick on bristling badger and jim at the quiet road...

so yes. seven things that are good.


nick cave touring in may

henry the octopus (my one plant at the moment has survived two moves over the last six weeks, and is growing cheerily. i have no idea what he is, but he's kind of green and purple....)

giant beanbags

maddy. not the famous one, but my blokey's niece. she's three, amazing and has decided that my full title is 'friend zoe'. he gets to be called 'unkie dave'. i'm not sure which is sickeningly cuter.

gumtree (dodgy landlords? short term lets in horrific properties? it's got it all... i think i might end up living all over london in the space of a year thanks to this site)

bea, the co-creator of fred and rosemary vest (cheerful pearly queen covers act with a slight hint of menace). she is a gingery goddess, and very fond of pink lady (which costs much cheapness a bottle and unfortunately isn't pink). we bonded in an office, cackling over filing and 90's indie. and then both got sacked within a month of each other :)
