I am meeting up with an old actress friend called Natalia who I haven’t seen since 1990! We have spoken since on the phone occasionally but it will be great to finally meet up properly and chat over lunch at Café Rouge in Wellington Street in the heart of Covent Garden.
There are so many exciting things that I would like to do that I simply haven’t got the money for (stop over, see a fantastic show, buy nice things, meet Nat’s partner, do the tourist thang, etc). I have been working quite a lot of overtime of late at Tesco and this is the only reason I can afford to go down to the capital, known up ‘oop norf’ affectionately as The Smoke. Even so money will be tight.
Borough Market. London.
I was considering going to Harrrod’s food hall to stare at the posh nosh and take a few pictures but even more compelling now is the urge to go to the Borough Market which I first heard about through Rick Stein’s programmes. Now I have had a look at their website and through some pictures on the photography website ‘flickr.com’ I am desperate to go and look around, buy foodie stuff and takes lots of pictures. It closes at five on a Saturday so part of me is reluctant to go when the stalls are looking empty. Oh decisions, decisions.

On my birthday itself my step mum is coming over to Nottingham and we are having lunch at the Broadway cinema where they do a good selection of food for very little money. I hope that she enjoys herself in Nottingham and that I stay awake enough to entertain her during her brief visit to the city of Robin Hood, Lace, Paul Smith, Boots the chemist and overall excellence in sports mixed with spasmodically violent gun crime (allegedly).
On Monday 28th I shall report back from my exciting weekend.Ooooooh! Exciting!
