A bag of peas and an embroidered jacket

This afternoon I headed to Brixton Village to go food shopping at the market.

Instead of buying food I ended up being lured into the quirky clothes shop, Saloon 97, where I spotted this vintage waistcoat. It was reduced to £15 in the sale and I couldn't resist.

As I parted with my cash, I told the shop assistant that I was supposed to be food shopping and that I would now have to eat porridge for a week instead.

She laughed and said that when she was a student she lived off pasta and bags of frozen peas.

Who needs food anyway when you have a colourful embroidered jacket?

Shopping bag in hand, I headed off to buy some peas.
