This weekend I went to visit an old Uni friend in London - we met seven years back when living as students in Cardiff and working a part time job in retail. We went to Spitalfields Market, and popped to GBK for a quick lunch before mooching round the stalls. When living in Cardiff we bonded over our love for the GBK goats cheese burger; a big fat slab of breaded and baked goats cheese with roasted aubergine and the like. We were pretty dismayed to find the big slab of goats cheese now being a very thin slither - literally devo'd! When suitably shopped-out we headed back to her place near Clapham Common for the most delish beef goulash, plenty of vino and a very weird film (anyone seen Her with Joaquin Phoenix?!).
I couldn't bring myself to lug my camera around all weekend, so these pictures are from my iPhone. Apologies for the quality!
This morning saw me catching up with another long-time friend, this time heading to The Breakfast Club in Battersea Rise. Naturally, I went for eggs - huevos al benny which is a delicious combination of poached eggs, chorizo, peppers, guacamole, chillis and hollandaise with a side of fried potatoes. As you can imagine, I was in brunch heaven! We only had to queue for about half an hour which didn't seem too bad.
This week begins the countdown to half term - 5 days! I just can't wait to switch off for a week; this term has been a tough one which found me almost fainting in lessons and feeling more than exhausted. Oh the life of a teacher!
