This is an adorable cottage in Blackfriars, London. London, Ontario, that is. It seems London, Ontario has everything London, England has to offer, except maybe Piccadilly and the London Eye..
Well, I exaggerate.
But here is a lovely 9th floor apartment on the Thames just up the road from Covent Garden, where all the server girls have beautiful 'country girl' complexions and wear crisp aprons but no make up....This Thames also has a nice 'walk.' And it goes for miles.
And Goth Elvices in a restaurant around the corner called the Early Bird that only opens at 10 am.
This place serves Big Food. Big Salads a la Seinfeld and this humungous fish and chip sandwich. Do they have Big Sandwiches in London, England?
The sandwich tasted good. Dripping with fat, it was.
The waitresses here all looked like Morticia Addams.. AKA Caroline Jones types, lithe and sultry with lots of make up. Bright and on the ball, too. One waitress had scintillating green cat eyes. I complimented her but she admitted her iris colour was fake.
But the Devil looming above my husband's head was there to remind me I was being very, very bad eating that lunch. In my younger days, I probably could have worked at the Early Bird, being dark and tall and scary-looking...I could not have worked at Covent Garden...
And the weather for my trip was fairly crappy too, overcast and damp. So it felt like London, England, without the crazy backwards traffic and double decker buses.
Ocicat Ocicat, where have you been? "I'm already in London, you stupid human home invader."
Beautiful but aloof.
