One fine Thursday morning two weeks ago, I woke up very early with my camera and a good book in my hand and took the tube to London Bridge for a much needed me-day. The best way to start the day naturally is with a stack of pancakes, and usually if i'm on my own i avoid eating out because i get super self conscious and worry that people think I've been stood up, however i was determined to get a huge fluffy stack of The Breakfast Club's Bacon Pancakes, so i walked past three times before summoning up the courage to say, "Just one please" with an air of false indifference. The waitress sat me down in a little corner and as i glanced around looking at couples and business people chattering over their food i thought "shit shit shitty shit, why am I eating alone oh my gawd" but after ordering a flat white and bringing out my book of choice (It was 'Things Fall Apart' by Chinua Achebe) i felt a little more at ease. And when the pancakes arrived, i happily shoveled forkfuls into my mouth whilst wondering what would happen next in Umuofia.
Afterwards I went to the infamous Borough Market, and what a treat it was! So many colours, textures, scents and goods! I walked around once taking everything all in before deciding to bring out my camera and happily snap away whilst taking time to buy a few Meringues, Macarons and Cacti (a girl's gotta treat herself ok!). I wholeheartedly recommend taking a trip to Borough, for the energy alone if not for all the delicious treats.
And I wholeheartedly recommend you taking yourself out for pancakes, or waffles, or whatever breakfast fare your heart desires. It's good to treat yourself sometimes.
Have a lovely week and let me know what you're all getting up to!
