Legends from our own lunchtimes

Wednesday, August 10, 2011


We mostly seem to be on the other side of the world when family birthdays are celebrated, so when the opportunity comes to share in a bit of Birthday Cake it's worth hanging around for, specially when Julian bakes it.

 As we shared Shelley's birthday Pad Thai in the bustling little place attached to a tiny pub in Notting Hill, I wondered, probably because we'd spent a bit of time standing outside her house yesterday, if the Queen knew what she was missing.

Life on the streets seemed to have returned to their usual as we walked home which is probably not surprising with over a thousand "rioters" now in temporary incarceration.   It did cross my mind that they may well have achieved part of their objective to have a taste of the life of the privileged classes, after all they were probably enjoying the same view of life that the Royal Family enjoys each day.

Through iron bars.
