How I found Anne Frank in a posh cafe!

No this isn't a sick joke folks. I went to a newish cafe in Nottingham on recommendation today. It is called The Walk and it's alongside the Ibis Hotel by the Lace Market tram stop. It was very busy and a classy joint. I got met by a man in a bow tie and smiled at by a very sweet young lady we'll call L for discreetness sake. "Phil!" she called out. "How lovely to see you!" And I got a peck on the cheek. From the girl that is, not the man in the bow tie. OK.

It turned out to be a young actress who four years ago was about 14 and played one of two Anne Frank's in a stage production of The Diary of Anne Frank that I was in. She is now all grown up and attending a course on Fine Art. They were very busy, as I said, so we didn't really have a chance to talk. However I did have a pot of Earl Grey and got permission to photograph the cakes. The tea was nice and I gave the food a miss because the prices were a bit high for me at the moment. If you read this - it was great to see you again L.

At last, somewhere decent to take my Mother for a bite to eat, on our next shopping trip. Will have to try this one, Phil!
