I was all dressed and walking my daughter to the train station. Seemed like a waste of time heading home to do nothing so I thought I would jump on a train and go somewhere.

I guess that’s one of the best things about being in London. There is plenty to see and do if you know what you like to do. Problem is I had no real idea so I ended up in Camden.

Haven’t been there for years and the market is definitely very different to what I remember.

I was looking for a scarf (which I eventually found) and found myself loving these recycled (or is it upcycled) bags. They were army tents in a former life and these tents have been created into bags.

I bought one of those along with a couple of earrings and my scarf that has already paid for itself in terms of keeping me warm this weekend.

It was freezing out and I don’t tend to leave the house when it’s cold. I am a fair weather person. December until March is usually my hibernation time when I go out only when necessary. I certainly wouldn’t leave to walk around a market.

So, I was very proud of myself for breaking with the status quo. A very tiny victory but still very significant.
