Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
I don't often write about politics on my blog, which may be a bit odd since I studied Political Science at the Hanken School of Economics in Helsinki. I don't do this because I think if I began, I'd never write about anything else ..!
But with Trump signing a ban on certain citizens from entering the United States, together with the Brexit vote here in the UK, I am so frightened that I have to say something about it all publicly.
So today I'm making an exception…Continue

. . where few my age have gone before.
Every so often something happens in my life which inspires me. Last weekend such a thing happened. I took part in, and did tolerably well at, an icosathlon (from the Greek icos = 20, athlon = contest). Like decathlon, you know, Daley Thompson in the Olympics, all those years ago, only this is 20 events. Unfortunately for the world what this inspires me to is vanity and dire prose.
So what has inspired me.
1) Camarederie - two…Continue

We are running another of our popular cricket camps at North Midd CC in Park Road N8 over the half term holiday.
The format will be similar to previous camps with a good mixture of drills, skills coaching, net sessions and matches. We'll also have wet weather alternatives, so the camp will go ahead each day.
The camp is aimed at boys and girls aged 7 – 13 and will run from 9.30am to 3.30pm each day.
The cost is £100 for the 4 days. Individual…Continue

The Lady Taverners Under 11 Competition is played as a festival with all the matches being played in one day. Three teams all finished on the same number of league points, and North Middlesex was declared the overall winner on the number of runs scored. North Midd Girls received the trophy, plus medals and certificates from Pinky, the Middlesex CCC club mascot.

I am delighted to be taking part in this tea shop story festival. I will be reading from my forthcoming novella, The Finnish Girl, which is a prequel to The Englishman, the first book in my Nordic romance series.
I will also be talking a bit about how I use my own life for my fiction (and stay sane). There will be a question and answer session afterwards.
If you happen to be in London this Saturday, pop over to Queens Wood near Highgate for a…Continue

I'm a local Crouch End author, and can often be seen out and about with my border terrier in Queen's Wood or Priory Park, or watching comedy Downstairs at The King's Head. When my first novel, The Englishman, came out, I stood at the bus stop and handed out leaflets and many of you lovely locals took a copy and I saw a spike in my sales. So, beware, I'll be there again soon handing out more leaflets, this time…Continue

This is a great board to play on. It's full sized (all 88 keys), comes with manual, stand, book rest, A/C adapter, and a sustain pedal, which a lot of other boards don't and you have to buy the sustain separate. The sound quality is great.
£350 + collect from Crouch End. Please contact Martin on firstname.lastname@example.org

I rashly promised someone over on Facebook that I'd blog the recipes for my Finnish Christmas vegetable bakes... sadly I never got round to it this year, but perhaps in 2015? I see from my archives that I have blogged several times about my Finnish food traditions (with pictures), so until next year, this will have to do.
As usual, Christmas was a busy time for the Halme family. On the 24th, together…Continue
