“An average person loses 200000 bits and bobs in their lifetime.”

Should be more careful.

Some words: tickets, coins, combs, playing cards, clips, pens, money, oysters, grandparents.

They build a history out of these things don’t they.

This one was Rainham Hall. It is one of those merchant houses from the olden times.

You know the ones.

This one was good.


Imagine if you could only take 10 things somewhere.
Mummy and daddy said:

Below Eli but above each other.

Il take that.

It was very good.

“Reading, embroidering, entertaining guests or strolling in the private garden.”

Wasn’t a bad life.

What’s this?

“No respectable Tudor lady wore knickers not even the queen.”


I was wondering about urine?

“Washerwoman used it as a stain remover.
Cloth makers used it to clean there wool.
Dyers added it to their coloured dyes to stop the colours from washing out.”

I use it to mark my territory.

The rooms were good when they had stuff in.

Particularly enjoyed the “chamber above the buttery.”

We @thedogwhatblogs hate the Piccadilly Line.

Well we did…


We were going to blog about some tedious/pretentious/cool* gallery.

We still might in a bit but twice we’ve encountered a certain London character.

“Your friendly driver Jason.”

Friendly/wonderful/too much* (see also albiestar).

Alleviating the pain of post-leicester squarers and post-heathrowers.

We are bound to under or oversell this gent.

Heres an audioboo.

He wasnt at his best today but basically he gives a lot of additional information about what side the doors open and stuff. He warns you very earnestly about the gaps.

Anyway we like people who try so we will opt for “wonderful.”


Gallery. Matts. Mile End. Walk by the canal. Coots, evil cyclists and relaxation.

Some words: leaves, no cock, john keats, light, shade, crisp, no fanny, eschew, no boobs, water, stourhead, instagrammy, democracy.


After murdering green day at singing and being soothed by our friendly driver Jason’s more dulcet tones we opted for a movie: Storage 24.

With him from Dr Who who’s more multi talented than you think.

Cineworld Wood Green. One of north londons premier entertainment destinations.

Look we did philosophy last week…

Storage 24 then.

Some words: relationships, plane crash, people change, scary, why? i want to know why?, difficult meetings, storage, cellars, monsters
