I have a couple of previous connections with Ladywell Fields. The first is that I used it as the name of a 1930s transvestite in a choose-your-own-adventure-poirot-spoof I wrote for a friend of ours. Along with her friend Victoria Busstation. … Continue reading
There are almost too many things making me cross at the moment. Through not-much fault of my own, I clicked onto the Daily Mail website 9 times in 2 days last week. I don’t know why it kept happening, but … Continue reading

I like to think that as you read the blog, you’re thinking something along the lines of “gosh, how well organised that katese11 is! Her adventures around London always go off without a hitch”. Well, readers, I am about to … Continue reading
Kennington is home to MPs, random pop stars and other minor celebrities. It’s also close to the middle of town and bits of it are eye-wateringly expensive. As an area, it doesn’t have a huge amount of centre but there … Continue reading
Hackney may not be the most obvious place to live with small children, being more associated with hipsters and struggling musicians. But there is a growing community of parents, some of them still hipsters and struggling musicians, and the area … Continue reading
