I used to be a regular on the old Edmonton board before it closed down, discovered this forum clicking on items on Steve Pickering's Old Edmonton Pintrest Site. Still particularly interested in information on the indoor arcade going up the hill to the Empire, Knights Road baths and the 10th Edmonton.

Only two people have so far come forward, I do need some more. There is only 24 hours left in which to renew or to cancel. Sorry about the short notice but, that is all the time I was given.

Colin Hamleys is almost in the middle of Regent Street and sells nothing but toys, all five floors of them. A paradise for kids of all ages especially me.

This week has been very much a catching up time. Presents bought apart from a few stocking fillers that I can get in any supermarket and will be wrapped this evening. Tree ready to put up and decorate and all the materials, apart from the fresh flowers, bought and ready for me to make my door wreath, table centre and real mini Christmas tree. Will probably do those tomortrow and will have a route (meant root but forgot about predictive text) around my artificial flowers and see if any of those fit into the design.

I know it is Christmas now because I was in Enfield Town this morning and the Salvation Army brass band was playing in the precint.

IAN - thank you for enlightening me about Hamleys. I guess I must have gone there at some stage when I was a kid. I do recall going with my parents to a big department store where they had a 'Santa's grotto' back in the 1940s but I always had it in my mind it was Gamage's Dept Store but perhaps it was Hamleys. Sounds like a kiddies paradise. Had a look at the photos of the lights in Oxford Street and Regent Street - look great. Miss that part of Christmas - lights, shop windows with their lights on at dusk, groups of street carol singers and the bustling crowds. Never the same out here in Oz. Still enjoyable but doesn't have quite the same atmosphere somehow.
