Update: OK, yesterday’s lesson is that you shouldn’t post on a blog when you’ve had about five hours sleep a night for the last two weeks, and two bottles of cider just before. Camberwell Arts Festival is on Sunday, not Saturday. Other than that, the following is probably more or less right.
No update for a while, as my nephew has come to stay with me to do work experience (staying with me isn’t his work experience, coming to work with me is) and I’ve found myself with little spare time. Light updates for the near future also; more on that later.
So Summer is upon us and it’s time for Camberwell Arts Week. It all kicks off with Camberwell Live! in Lucas Gardens on Saturday, and there’s a full programme of all kinds of stuff until Sunday 24th (stretching the definition of a week, but that’s ‘cause we’re bonkers!!1!).
Get out and support it as much as you can, because this is part of what makes us more than just another bland suburb, and why I get cross with stuck‐up journalists who don’t bother to look beyond the obvious when they’re seeking out their goat’s cheese crostini.
In case there’s anyone here who doesn’t read SE5Forum.org, here’s an interesting snippet: the Council’s Licensing Committee are (finally) going to begin consultation on a ‘saturation policy’ — that is, if we have too many off‐licenses in the area and are they contributing to the street drinking problem. I would say ‘yes’ and ‘yes’.
As mentioned earlier, there’ll be light updates only for the near future; my web‐hosting package is coming to an end and I’ve decided to make a few changes, so I’ll be busy doing technical stuff in my spare time. Part of that will probably involve a redesign of the blog, unless I run out of time. Complain about it now, because everybody hates change; you’ll love it after a week or so, though.
Get out and enjoy the Summer. It’s beautiful.
