What’s it all about?
There are loads of London blogs where you can read about the latest bars, clubs, exhibitions and events, and lots of websites with page after page of “what’s on” listings – but this isn’t one of them.
This blog is about being a seasoned, local Londoner. The day-to-day. Tutting at tourists, nipping to your local, being hungover, knowing where to sit on the bus, abiding by tube etiquette and regaling people with a story about that bloke who threw up on the Piccadilly line last night. And the occasional dog.
Better yet, subscribe so that when I do post, you’re the first to know.
I’m Jo Harris-Cooksley. I live in East London, work in Farringdon, and grew up in Pinner, Zone 5. I’m a writer, work in content marketing, and have been blogging since 2006. I love independent cinema, eating in interesting places, drinking in the same places every week, and loose-leaf tea. Like most Londoners, I spend far too much money on rent, and seeing a dog on the tube will pretty much make my day.
