On waking last Thursday I found that my little Square of Leeds had mysteriously been transported to Highbury

Or maybe N5 just got a whole lot bigger. (I hope my rent didn't go up.)

ITV were filming. Three big lorries. Lots of crew people, too many to try and separate out any possible stars. It's apparently a drama (something about bad mothers?) set in Lancashire. That'll be Lancashire, Islington then?

The doorbell kept going just after 7:30am, it was a policeman trying to get people to move cars. I wouldn't mind but my car's an hour away in the Dales. It's a bit much to wake up on a morning when you're expected to turn up at work in Leeds at 8am, only to find you're unexpectedly in London and not only that, but you have to make it out into the wilds of the Dales to move your car at a policeman's request. It was all a bit much.

I ignored the policeman's request and upon walking around the corner, found myself back in Leeds. So I was alright getting to work. And the bin men came, I was worried that they might be disrupted.

How odd. Lancashire Islington I know well, but disrupting bin men and parked cars an hour away? That's just not badminton now is it? :)

I think that the policeman really wanted our neighbour to move his car, but he wasn't in, so he kept buzzing us instead.

Like I know my neighbours.Pfft. (They're students.)

It seemed fairly well organised. I was quite impressed. I wouldn't want it to happen every day.
