I don't like Mondays ...

Take a gold star and go to the top of the class if you can tell me who had an early 80's hit with that song title (Answer at the bottom).

Had a first 'celeb' spot on the tube this morning for a while - well i say 'celeb' but it wasn't A-list, it was merely BBC Londons local TV news reader, Emily Maitlis sitting on an Edgware Road bound district line train that I was on this morning.

I hopped off at my usual changepoint of Notting Hill, and whilst waiting on the westbound platform, spotted something that I've never seen before. About halfway down are some grills/gates at the edge of the platform, that if you peer into you can see an old corridor, stairs going off somewhere, and on the side - this old poster.

It's an old Childrens Society poster, where the amount of money is still listed in shillings! Pre-decimal! So at least 1960's... it's been their 30 years. Cool.

And yet someone has stuck up some plastic folders and some sort of information sheet/notice over the top half of it! Wonder where the corridor goes to though ... Anyone know?

Oh, and it was the Boomtown Rats. Easy.
