This month we have suddenly found ourselves surrounded by cartoon imagery!
We have a Hide All employee, Sam Mills who sells comics every Thursday in Greenwich market. See Twitter.
Spike Milligan’s popular range of cards (courtesy of Woodmansterne) are sold in both stores. Catches the moment we think – as all the best cards should!
A few of our favourite things and the blogs that we think do them best…
Books – dovegreyreader scribbles, a Devonshire based bookaholic, sock-knitting quilter who is a community nurse in her spare time. Pauline absolutely loves this blog – the reviews, opinions and reports of daily life in the West Country. Familiar territory for Pauline!
Clothes and Colour – whatkatiewore, a different outfit every day. We find this a very addictive blog, the soap-opera of the web. Still, she’s wearing the same trousers as Pauline has from Whistle this season.
Football - Charlton Athletic Online, news, views, opinion, previews and reports on Charlton Athletic Football Club by Pedro45!
Gossip – Rachel’s blog, what students do when they’re not working at Hide All or writing essays!
Arts and Crafts – Hello Lucky, all things stylish, vintage, and handmade. The reason why we started blogging and a big influence on our buying for the stores.
When the weather is cold and the days get dark, there is nothing better than curling up with a good book! We are keen readers and bookgroup members here at Hide All. So here goes with a list! Best read this winter…
1) Cecelia Ahern- ‘The Gift’. Rachel’s chicklit choice is full of Christmas sparkle and an intriguing plot.
2) Matt doesn’t know but was hidden in ‘The Great Divergence’ by Pomerantz for many a hour! (What!!!!!)
3) ‘The Help’ by Kathryn Stocket – Pauline’s distraction from December retail melt down.
4) ‘Return of the Native’ – Don’t we all love and adore Hardy’s work – audio book read by Alan Rickman – listened by Mick! Christmas present from Pauline. Self interest rules in the Gebbett household.
5) The Virginia Andrews trilogy - ‘Flowers in the Attic’, ‘Petals on the Wind’ and ‘If There be Thorns’ - has kept Louise just about alive and kicking as she fought off the flu!
6) ‘Y the last man’ by Brian K Vaughn is Neil’s choice. True to geeky form – boys will be boys!
Next week – best read of 2010. Watch this space!
Tower Bridge Neil went to see Santa last Friday. Travelling on board the Santa Special – Kent and East Sussex steam railway from Tenterton in Kent to Bodiam it was, according to young Neil, a wonderful December day across snowy fields and icy valleys. Neil asked Santa for some Arsenal points but Ellie (aged two), Neil’s niece, was more than happy with her pop-up zoo animal book!
Hide All weekender and resident blogger, Rachel, was lucky enough to have a mini-break in beautiful Bath this month. Aside from the lovely views and interesting history, one of the trip’s highlights was a visit to Sally Lunn’s tearoom for the famous Bath Bun. Tea and cake seem to be a theme this month on the blog. I wonder why…
It’s that time of year and for all of us at Shad Thames it’s Pont de la Tour deli for our daily delight – freshly made soup.
What’s your favourite? We shall be testing this week and will report back.
It was a victory for England at the Cartier Cup 2010 when they played New Zealand on Sunday. The pimms was flowing and the sun was shining as England dominated the field.
The earlier match between Hurlingham and the Prince of Wales’s team was also a spectacular sight to be seen with an energetic five Chukka match. As he relaxed in the Royal enclosure, we are sure though a good game Prince Charles was disappointed to see his team defeated.
Tower Bridge Jane really enjoyed her day out with friends and has been reading up on the history of polo. So we thought we would share a small polo fact with you all involving the Hurlingham team that she saw.
In the mid 19th century an Irishman, Captain John Watson, of the British Cavalry 13th Hussars, created the first set of written rules for playing polo. In 1874 the Hurlingham Rules were created. They limited the number of players to five on a team and included the offside rule.
