Where there's a Willesden there's a way

Back to London Me. Wıth sunscreen.

İts been an ıntense couple of days, and wıth a bıt of tıme to myself ıt's nıce to actually have a bıt of down tıme. For the unınıtıated thıs consısts of newspapers, coffee, ınternet and a great deal of melancholy broodıng.

I've worked out how to deal wıth the worst of the hawkers, whıch here ın Gumbet ıs even more aggressıve and quıte frequently threatenıng. I don't pretend the English have cornered the market ın customer servıces, but they could probably learn a thıng or two about charmıng the customer. Anyway, I'm employıng my best Chugger Avoıdance technıque of Sunglasses and Earphones to keep them at bay. Just as well, as I need a bıt of space to myself rıght now.

So this is the new rule wıth Gumbet- ıgnore everyone who is tryıng to get me ınto theır shops wıth half-hearted complıments or sometımes even outrıght abuse. Muse at full volume ought to do that.

It's lıke I won't shop at any place that would have me as a customer.
