So far lots of exciting things have happened this week 🎉😊! I went to work 💻 on Monday – hurrah! This was good, I was helping to set up for a sample sale 👗👚👠👙, and it was great to get out of 🚴 the house 🏠 and be useful and catch up with some people 😃.
I had lunch at Coffee Affair ☕️ in Queenstown Road 👸 station 🚂 which is splendid. I really quite like this little coffee shop ☕️🏪, and the couple who run it are so lovely. I hadn’t been in almost a year, and was so pleased that they are very much still there. They sell all sorts of things, sandwiches 🍔, cakes 🎂 and soup 🍵and most importantly coffee ☕️. They are very good 😊 at coffee – They even do coffee classes ☕️🎓!
I had some delicious Italian meatball soup 🍝 and a flat white to take away ☕️.
Today I took a trip to Wimbledon 🎾 which is not so far away – and took a cycle path 🚴 that was very rural 🌳🌿🍃. Max is convinced Wandsworth is the countryside 🌳 (he took a photo of a duck 🐥 on the common the other day…) but, I have to say – the cycle 🚴 to Wimbledon 🎾 really did make me feel like I was in the countryside 🍃🌿 – Citymapper 📉 took me through a thoroughly un-city route. It was a beautiful day ☀️ – but I made the mistake again of inappropriate footwear 👠… they are so beautiful 💕 though – some lovely gold loafers… (I was in Wimbledon for an interview which was very exciting!)
I met Chesca back in Wandsworth and we headed to Flotsam and Jetsam 🚣 again (you can have breakfast 🍨until 3pm in the afternoon – I can’t get enough of the place!). I ate eggs florentine 🍳🌿 and she had blueberry 🍇 and lemon 🍋cake 🍰 – it was very good.
There has been a demand for more baking 🙇🎂 – so this afternoon I made chocolate biscuit 🍫🍰 cake with cherries and white chocolate chunks – I have never seen Tom so happy when he discovered this (apart from maybe when Arsenal ⚽️ are winning, but even then you know, I’m not sure – the happiness was really quite Great 😃 – in the large sense, not the ‘thumbs up’ sense, this is important). I used this recipe but added white chocolate and removed the nuts. I have even offered to cook dinner 🍝this evening – I am not sure quite what is happening – we are having this……
