It has been raining in London almost constantly for over a week now. I don't think I mind it much, although I can't say I am excited by having wet feet most of the time I am out.
So, not deterred by rain, I went to meet one of my favourite people down in Brixton market.
She treated us to cheese on toast with chutney and of course, coffees. Latte for her, and as ever, espresso for me. This treat was consumed at my favourite, Rosie's.
I bought two bouquets of tulips for her (forgot to take pictures), and two bouquets of carnations for me. While buying these, we discussed: "Flowers - luxury or necessity?" She thinks luxury and I of course think, an absolute necessity. We got two more people involved in the discussion, and by the time we purchased the flowers, all three of us convinced my friend that flowers are of course a necessity!
We then took a stroll around the market. Londoners do not fear rain. Here are just some of the pics of the happy eaters and rain defiers. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen Brixton Village this busy. You could hardly walk through the crowds.
We saw three people fall down, helped one of them and then discussed "falling down" in literal and metaphorical way. You'd be amazed how much one can say on such a topic!
We then went up the hill to my house where we proceeded to talk life, theatre of course, (she is a fellow performer) and doing a short film about blogging. We had pasta, wine and jaffa cakes. Finally, we called it a day around 11pm.
In my mind, this was somewhat of a perfect Saturday.
Hope your weekend is as enjoyable as mine and you are spending it with people you love.
