Opening hours are: Mon 8-6pm Tues to Sat 8-10pm and Sun 10-4pm -- place page will be updated when google allows it.. What a brilliant addition to the Baddow Road area of Chelmsford. Just love the feel of this place, friendly owner and welcoming smile. Upstairs there's an excellent seating area, the styling with the bike on the wall is fantastic.

Fantastic visit here today for a christening. Lovely to see such a friendly and welcoming Revd. The Church Hall adjoins the Church with such excellent facilities, see the photos..

Benefit have moved to a brand new Head Office in the Marconi Building (former New Street Works), I've attached a comp slip with the new address. It was lovely to see some of the radio memorabilia on display - so important as from 1912 this was the first ever purpose built radio factory. Visitors to Benefit Cosmetics should be aware 'Marconi Building' is also another the name of one of the local Anglia Ruskin University faculties, so make sure you arrive at New Street :)

On a four mile walk across London yesterday, Somerset House was my highlight. When you step through those three arches, you enter a quiet hidden world of tranquillity. The courtyard has little chairs where people sat alone read a paper book, just brilliant.

Be careful with online prices (at Tesco Direct) compare to instore prices on larger items ie a TV. We had issues which ended up with a price haggle, thankfully Duty Manager agreed with us in the end, and gave us the Online Price.

On passing by the yard, I was totally impressed by the display of freshly cut timber posts. The smell was excellent too. Here are a few photos, I would certainly loot at more uses to these posts, sure as a fence, but from what I've seen they deserve to be hung on the wall as an art exhibit :)
