The Daily Constitutional editor's London year 2015 draws to a close. Adam writes…


November

At Home With The Editor

I began November recovering from the infection that had laid me low on Halloween…


… with the help of Natasha the cat.


It's also Christmas Cake making month…



Special cakey thanks go to Nigel Slater for the recipe, Elvis Costello for the soundtrack, Tony's Continental in East Finchley and Martyn's of Muswell Hill for the ingredients and Isobella for licking the bowl…





And I also discovered the joys of DOUBLE BOARD MONOPOLY!


The idea for Double Board Monopoly can be found in one of my all-time favourite London books – Do Not Pass Go by Tim Moore. You can visit his author page at Random House HERE. Thanks for inspiration Mr Moore!



(I'll be blogging more about the London Monopoly board in the new year.)


Disappearing Denmark Street

November also saw a fantastic invitation to view a mural in Denmark Street that would soon disappear forever thanks to the ongoing (so-called) gentrification of London's great musical street…







Thanks to Alistair for access and to the artists Maria Beadell and mORGINICo.

To keep up with Maria's work, visit her website mariainpaint.webnode.com and mORGINICo's website is here: www.morganico.com




When Hashtags Fail

In November I made my annual trip to Porterford Butcher off Bow Lane to order the turkey. To mark my visit, I tried my hand at a hashtag to see if I could get the guys at Porterford trending in lieu of them having their own Twitter account. After much thought, I went with…

#LetsTweetAboutMeat


Suffice to say, it didn't set the woods on fire. 







Next time… Up to date with December…
