Portobello Road

For some reason or another, I've never made it to Portobello Road before. Does it make anyone else immediately think of Bedknobs and Broomsticks?! Simon and I wandered to the market on Saturday out of curiosity... and I don't think we're in any rush to head back down again!
I didn't have any delusions about picking up bargains, but I was seriously unprepared for the crowds it pulls in. Some of the stalls were pretty cool to look at and Simon took particular interest in a letter press stall. After experiencing a few elbows to the ribs, we fled to more familiar territory. 
I wanted to nip into Primark Tottenham Court Road briefly, and after the hoards of people at Portobello Road, Primark actually seemed kind of calm!
In other news, the flat hunt has finally proved successful! I've got a couple of weeks before the move in date and I'm getting really excited. I'm going to Ikea with my mum soon and I've been scouring eBay and Gumtree for bargains, Kirstie's fill your home for free couldn't have come at a better time!
Have you been to Portobello Road Market?

Puppy Love

Lately I've been flat hunting and it's getting a little tedious. Last minute viewing cancellations are not fun, especially when I'm already halfway to said property! So babysitting an 11 week old puppy on Sunday was a welcome break.
Jet belongs to one of my mum's friends and he is SO cute. His fur is silky soft and he's so playful all the time. It's a shame we had to hand him back over to his owner, but his shoe obsession (my shoes in particular) meant it was probably for the best.
