This is the first move that Andy and I will make where we will be sad to leave the neighbourhood. We couldn't get out of South Tottenham fast enough twenty years ago and we weren't in Kensington or Lewisham long enough to grow attached to anything. Maida Vale is a great place as our visitors know. Here we've got anything one could want within walking distance. It takes me longer to find my shoes and put them on than it does to walk to the shop for a still warm pain au chocolat. We'll miss the super chatty florist at Avalon Flowers, hopping on a number 6 bus to Selfridges, and the best pizza in London at Le Cochonnet.
