Where am I?

I turn my back for two minutes (one week), and the whole of Blackheath is unrecognisable… Well, OK, they’re doing up Gregg’s, there appears to be a World War One re-enactment of The Somme setting up next to Blackheath Cars, and the dodgy restaurant up at the top, near the really good restaurant has been renamed.

So, one by one:

Gregg’s
Gregg’s isn’t being closed for excessive MSG usage, instead it’s being given a shiny new fascia. See this PDF at Lewisham council for all the gory details. No illuminated signs, and no mention of whether they’ll keep making Vegetable Slices (don’t tell Mrs Bugle).

Roadworks next to the station
At last, the mess next to the traffic lights appears to be getting better, but instead has been replaced by a massive amount of pipe-laying as you walk towards the farmer’s market.

Fıstık Kebab Brasserie Restaurant
Note the absence of dots above the “i” in Fıstık, means that it pronounced “er” as in “shirt”, not “i” as in “shift”. Fıstık means peanut in Turkish. It’s also a term of endearment used by men to women. I imagine it really isn’t something you’d want to find inside a kebab. More importantly, the conjunction of the words Kebab and Brasserie probably shouldn’t appear in the same sentence, and fill me (and Mrs Bugle) with apprehension. Time will tell!

    Yes Kebab is a strange choice …

    It seemed always empty before (like the cactus) so let’s hope it’s a success .

    Let’s hope they keep the road cobbled by the station

    Have you got anything nice to say about Gregg’s bakery at all?
