A little piece of Jersey in the City

The builders tell me that work is going well on the house by the sea - no buried treasure found, and that's a good thing...  It's raining today but all last week we had sunny days here (hurricanes and earthquakes aside), and November and our voyage home still seem like a long way off.

But we have an influx of visitors in September, so I know that suddenly we'll be waving goodbye to our old neighbourhood.  And one of the institutions that we pass all the time on the bus is this old store.

In many ways, it's nothing special.  And it's not as though there won't be pork in Suffolk.  But I'm pretty sure nowhere will have this on the wall outside.

Hilarious!  Every time I pass it I expect to see a Soprano lurking outside.  Or a rug-shaped object being hussled into the back.

I mean, seriously - doesn't it make you  want to start singing to yourself that you woke up this morning and got yourself a gun?

Now, I know I've spent way too much time in my life watching Sex and the City and Sopranos (what else is there to do for two years in the desert?)  But please, tell me it's not just me.



  1. I love it!! A shop selling porky products.
    There's nothing quite like this in the UK!
    Have a great week.

  2. I want to try a rib belly! Smoked loins sound, well, as though they belong on SATC! (I'm a stalwart fan too).

  3. Oh by the way, ace pork (and other meat products) here

    It's in a village called Peasenhall, except we call it Peasensweetcorn.

  4. Pork Sho - nope I don't think you'll find a shop like that in Suffolk :)

    Here's to hurrying home soon - it has been very autumnal this week. Heating on and all.
