A little bit of fun with Jennifer ...

After the visit to Abney Cemetery - Nature reserve .
a Thai lunch in Yumyums
 a cocktail and a Thai beer (for me)
which was delicious ..
We took a walk down Church Street - Stoke Newington ..
a very up and coming street too. We found lovely cafes, delis ,
and gift shops , definitely would like to go back.
We popped into one (cannot remember name , sorry)
and this is what we found ..
had to have a go and leave our mark !!
This FAB wallpaper , as you can see we were not the
only ones who had to do some colouring ..!!
Jennifer is now choosing her colours.

Found  a spot!!


Finished picture lol
and mine , of course it had to be
Anne in Oxfordshire lol
The cat!

What fun ♥


  1. Hi Anne,
    This looks SO fun!
    You not only have a delish Thai meal, you get to color the wall! Wheee! I am all for delish creativity...
    And, I LOVE old cemeteries ;).

    1. Hi Barbara , It was FUN. This is all near where we are staying too. I knew you would love the old cemetery , spookier than some I have been in !!

      Take care and See you soon xx

  2. Was this in London or did Jennifer come up to Oxfordshire? Please say a BIG HI to her from me plus all the best at her wedding!

    1. Hi Leslie , this was in London ,, :-=) Lovely little shops, Of course I will tell Jennifer :-) xx

  3. Hi Anne. Stoke Newington certainly sounds like a lovely place to visit. Loved the colouring! What a good idea!YumYums, what a fantastic name for a restaurant. Amazing that no-one has thought of it before. I hope the food lives up to its name!! I'm sure you will be going back there.

    1. Hi Diane , Not an area I had been to before , so didn't know what to expect , but Church street is great , so yes hope to go back , well I will for Jennifer's wedding next week , Oh the food was very tasty indeed.

  4. Hi Anne, just to let you know that Marc Bolan of TRex fame was born in Stoke Newington. Elton John used to hang out on Church St and played in a pub on the river Lee. If you go to the library on Church St, you will see the gravestone of Daniel Defoe, the author of Robinson Crusoe. There is a Daniel Defoe society and apparently Johnny Depp and Tim Burton are members.

    Queen Elizabeth the 1st used to visit the small ancient church near the entrance to Clissold Park on Church St. By the way, the cemetery is tastefully scruffy, that's the way Stokies like it! The reason it's not trimmed down is the wildlife and it is National Trust protected. There are woodpeckers, jays and sparrow-hawks. It is Splodge's favorite walkabout place because she's allowed off the lead and is therefore able to poop and pee at her leisure. LOL.

    I hope this interests you and I'm looking forward to seeing you at the wedding!

  5. Hi Jennifer , this is all so interesting , thank you so much for posting it up ,, going to add it too my post.. definitely worth another visit :-) yes of great interest, and see you next week :-) xx

    1. Hi Nicki , I am going to London at the weekend to the same area , will see if I can find the shop :-) yes it was fun !!

  8. I've never heard of it but it looks like a great place to visit.

  9. That really is a fun idea. I wonder how long it will be before it is full. Hope you have a good day. Diane xox
