I do, I do.
It's just so busy and exciting. Our nations capital has everything you could want and sadly all the work I want to do takes place here (and not up in the grim north). But still, I will travel if I have to.
I met my utter adorbs friends, Jaki and Judi in Leicester Square this afternoon. I'm down for a fashion shoot course and I had a day spare. Jaki lives in Worthing and Judi lives in Hitchin so it was a day out for them. We didn't plan much but to chat, eat and have fun. The conversation never runs dry when we're together.
We ate first and just chatted about everything and nothing. I love that. I enjoy their company. Jaki has such a gorgeous manner about her and a super dry wit. And Judi? The silver maned honey who excels class from every pore. I adore them both equally. Couldn't pick who I'd chose to have murdered first, to be honest. I'd kill them together so one don't feel less loved. Tee hee.
We strolled the food halls of Harrods taking a swift turn through Chanel and Jimmy Choo. Then a diversion via the pet shop and a major aversion at over-priced cups of tea. We sought solace at a fairly dinghy looking cafe which, upon closer inspection, was the find of the century. Seriously the best downstairs secrety bit ever. As we marvelled at its delish decor and secluded nooks, little did we know that the owner was witnessing our coos. He stood up and delighted over our enthusiasm and came to shake our hands. He was a really warm fellow (bit bloody nice, actually). By chance ......and certainly not by design, I only ended up being invited to photograph their official opening in April. I kid ye not.
We then sat down, drank lovely cups of tea slash coffee and chatted. Next thing we know, complimentary cakes were delivered to our table. Shit like that doesn't even happen in fairy tales, kids. Well not without a bad guy wanting to tear you limb from limb.
It was the cherry on the cake to mark the end of a lovely day. And we all lived happily ever that evening.
