A Trip To Peckham, London - 5th February 2012

Nosher, Isobel and Fred are down in Peckham - not a million miles away from Nosher's TouchType offices on the other side of Southwark - to visit Abbie. Whilst there, we meet up at "The Kernel", a micro brewery under the railway arches, Outside, there are all sorts of market stalls and things going on. Later in the evening, we venture out for pizza, watch the snow as it arrives and have a few beers in the pub over which we're staying for the night. The following day, Abbie is doing the Sunday roast, and Nosher and Noddy head out briefly to source some wine and beer to go with dinner.
