Me and HP (I know that's not grammatically correct, but when I put 'HP and I' it looked wrong)

Back on Good Friday in 2005, HP and I were walking down Walthamstow market, having been to a service at St Mary's Church. Outside the library we saw a man taking photos. He came over to us and said he was putting together a collection of '1000 faces of Walthamstow', which was to be photos of people who lived in Walthamstow, and would show the diversity of people in this area.

HP and I agreed to have our photos taken, and here are the results. We are on the website, and you're welcome to browse to see if you can find us. I didn't link directly to those pages as they have our surname on, but I'm not gonna stop you if you want to work it out!

This photo gave me a bit of a shock because it was at the 'my hair is getting long, and I'm using clips to hold my fringe out of my eyes, but I'm not yet tying it back' stage, and I'd forgotten how that looked.

Also featured is my beloved purple fleece top which I've had for almost longer than I can remember, and which the prompted the children I work with to say "Miss P, if you lived in Tudor times you would have had to be rich, otherwise you wouldn't be able to wear your favourite colour"! They've also enjoyed spotting my new car and commenting on its colour :-)

This wasn't actually the post I had in mind when I came on the computer, but as I'm back in London for the afternoon (to pick up a sewing machine to sew my Kentwell costume) I thought I'd better make the most of the photos on this computer while I'm here.

I think "HP and me" would be grammatically correct.

But inaccurate, cos it's not me, it's you.
