The new fish & chip shop

Out and about 2: Shop on Regent Street

We only noticed this a few weeks ago - it seems to sell home soft furnishings. Has it been there long?

Robert Plant in car crash in Kensal Rise

No-one seriously hurt I'm pleased to say, but apparently it was at the junction of Harrow Road and Kensal Rise. Which is where exactly? Do they mean Chamberlayne Road?

Next to Luca

I see workmen are beavering away putting in shelving from IKEA. What is it going to be?

Old Kensal Rise

The old picture at the top of this site was purchased from this site. Its here. They also have this fetching image of a postcard - 'having a lovely time in Kensal Rise. Weather hot'.

New Italian in Kensal Rise

Just by the taxi firm on Station Parade, we saw this restaurant is about to open. The note on the door says it will be an italian and opening in early September. This seems like good news!

Luca and next to it

My partner has tried Luca, the hairdressers, and was impressed. He also gave her a free towel, which was nice. I also note that next to Luca there is activity going on (in the "Ho" of Home) which I think someone else pointed out in the comments.

staying in touch

ive been away and back soon but still typing this on a phone so forgive lack of punctuation. Thanks to readers for their comments. Clearly as a thousand miles away have little to say. Anything else new? How was college road festival? Whats the weather been like? Its been about 37 here . . . Spain and southern france . . .and i was thinking the answer to my perennial question of what does kensal rise need is better weather and vineyards . . .
