Loving Stroud Green today because ...

While taking a week off work to catch up with 'stuff', I am reminded quite how nice this area is, even after 20-something years living here It is good to remind myself. Above all the mid-day, week-day gentleness of the streets (is village-like too strong a description?) having ambled along the Mount Pleasants past the covered reservoir over to Crouch End; then coming back popped into Santa's pharmacy, got beer for later-on bbq from Jacks, bbq meat from Tony's, and a coffee, cake and paper-reading in Vagabond ... nice friendly conversation in each ... wandered home via Victoria Road ...wonderful breezy summer day ...delighting in tne no-stressness of the neighbourhood ... just sayin', that's all.
