Yesterday I had an earlyish start with my surgery at St Andrews Church - knowing that I won't be holding another one until late September - after the summer, the autumn conferences and the autumnal equinox. I may have had to turn the heating on for an hour or too by that time.
This afternoon I helped out at the Clare Road Estate Community Fun Day. After spending years seeing the Brockley Society BBQ at Hilly Fields, I finally got to use it. It's a fierce beast, but very efficient at cooking lots of food quickly.
After that, I had a quick break and freshen up before joining other members of the local party in Whitstable for the evening. This day is the traditional Lewisham Green Party day out - and we have returned to Whitstable. Today was the last day of the Oyster Festival:
In the picture above I am faking the eating of an oyster by the harbour - I'd had half a dozen earlier. I was slightly dissappointed that the oysters were from Maldon not Whitstable this time...and yes that is Sue Luxton, a bit cold and warming herself up with a glass of Pimms.
Being in Whitstable on a clear night gives a great opportunity for some arty shots:
Anyway at home now, enjoying a glass of wine. Will be in the office tomorrow finishing stuff off and go on holiday Thursday morning and I can't wait.
