In the last couple of days I have enjoyed spending time with 2 lovely ladies. Last night ‘Vegetable Grower Up The Road’ was in London and we met at Madison, a champagne and cocktail bar with an amazing view of St.Pauls !
We had a citrus Mojito which was wonderful.
When it became cold and windy we wandered over the river to Borough Market and in to Fish! for supper. I had halibut with salsa verde, vegetables and chips which was delicious.
We had a lovely evening and it was so good to be able to go out to some of the wonderful places near where I work with a home friend. If anyone else wants to meet me after work, I would be delighted to see you 🙂 .
When I woke up this morning, I didn’t hear rain on the roof for the first time all week. I was actually able to enjoy walking to work, past this very smartly painted building
down clink street. Check out the dappled sunshine on the walls. Lifts the spirit doesn’t it?
This was the view from my office at 7:30am this morning. Yes, I was in very early as I had a lot to do.
I wanted to get an early start because JP was meeting me for lunch :-). We met way back in 1990 when we worked together and we have been good friends ever since and it was lovely to see her. Shame it wasn’t for longer but I could only take an hours break.
We went to Le Pain Quotidien, which I have had takeaways from before but never eaten inside and it is a lovely building with a calm and quiet but busy ambience – perfect for lunch. I had a smoked chicken salad
which was delicious.
For supper I made a smoothie with some raw buckwheat groats which I had soaked all day
plus a banana, 1/4 tsp matcha and a drizzle of maple syrup. The consistency was thick but the texture was a bit gritty which some people may not like. I didn’t mind it.
Now I am thinking I would like a glass of wine and some cheese. So glad it is the weekend. Hope you have a good one.
