Our street just gets trendier and trendier. Excitingly, we have been invited to a private view of an exhibition at the former Post Office, called Keep Me Posted, which is all about "our postal history and heritage". I particularly like the idea of the hand carved seat on which visitors can write a letter and post it in the "elegant George V pillar box" that stands outside the post office.
This invitation is very good news as we never get out anymore what with HackneyBaby and all. Maybe there will be alcohol! Also, maybe the footfall of visiting artists and art lovers will be such that one of them will see the For Sale sign outside our flat and want to buy it. You never know.
Despite the fun-ness of Keep Me Posted, however, I'd rather, on balance, have a Post Office.
Next I would like someone to take on the closed fish and chip shop and turn it into a yummy fish and chip shop, like Faulkners, please. Or maybe someone will take it on as another exhibition space on the history of cod.

Given the Tory (can't bring myself to refer to them in their Coalition disguise) plans to inject private money into the postal service, you may find the artistic community of the street getting up a petition to save our gallery space.
If you really want to know the history of the cod (and it is truly worth knowing), read Cod by Mark Kurlansky.

A cafe AND a tea shop in your street and you're selling up? I'd be ecstatic if a nice tea shop opened near us south of the river......

I know! I can't bear to leave. But it's that or have baby in our room forever, and no garden.
