Royal Wedding Tooting Style
DO NOT READ THIS if you are coming to my house tomorrow as it will ruin the moment. DO READ THIS if you want to see how our gaff tarted up for a bit of a do. I have only spent about £10 on my red white and blue decorations, I had my gingham checked and striped tablecloths already. We will be showing the wedding through a projector onto the wall for those who can be bothered to get here at 11....

Who is this Annabel and her house? She absolutely must be as lovely as her house. I found it about 18 months ago. Every now and then I check back to see if she is still as beautiful as ever and she always is. Let me explain how this minor obsession started. A friend of mine sent me a link to www.1st-option.com and I have never looked back. If you need to lose a couple of hours surfing this...
The Feast is over (for this month).
Wow, what a great day. The market was buzzing considering it was the first ever Feast. The guys from Diamond Jive made it for me, jiving all around the Retro Village. I foolishly forgot my Camera but here is one someone tweeted of some of our wares…courtesy of @redidea…
