I’m moving house for the second time in a week exactly. And after that I’m not moving for a while (fingers crossed). While moving twice in quick succession is stressful, I’ve taken advantage of the time packing to have a really good clear-out. So – bit of a longshot, but I thought I’d post these pretty niche (and nice) books up here in case anyone fancies them for cheaps. They’re all from my time studying German. Normal service to resume after this post.

If you’re interested in any of these books, please just drop me a line on email

Essentials of Modern German Grammar, J.A. Corbett
An Information to Transformational Grammars, Bach
Deutsch als Fremdsprache, Bach

Going South part 1

As a UCL grad, gravitating towards the north of London has been only natural but I can’t help but notice the attention south London’s been garnering of late, particularly the up-and-coming areas of Peckham and New Cross. So in the spirit of trying something new, I’m packing my passport and heading south of the river to check out what it’s got to offer in terms of bars/restaurants/fun times – starting with Rooftop Cinema’s new outpost at the Bussey Building in Peckham Rye.

A stone’s throw from the station, you can’t help but fall in love with the view of London’s skyline.

We went to see Lost Boys, a total classic vamp film complete with 80’s fashion & amazing layered scenes of homoerotic initiations.

What I love about this outdoor cinema experience is that the movie starts as the sun sets (alleviating any issues with light vs the projector) and Gerry & the Rooftop Cinema gang provide slankets to ward against the chill. Sitting in the striped deckchairs with your own headphones on ensures you’re totally undisturbed by people going to the street food stands/the bar/the loos. Winning.

Check out their programme of events at – they also show films at Queen of Hoxton, Netil House and Kensington Roof Gardens.
