A Roast Too Far

What a gloriously sunny day we had today! Maureen and I took Ms Pietersens for a walk in Kenwood. We thought it would be nice to go and have a Sunday roast in The Spaniards. However, at 2.00, when we arrived on foot from Bishops Avenue, the place was heaving inside and out. What time do you serve food until?’, we enquired of the non English speaking waitress, ‘All day’, was her response. Although we were particularly hungry, we decided to go and have a walk first and come back. We had a massive walk in Kenwood, Ms Pietersens walking in between us, so as not to get crushed on the busier paths. As per normal, I led us the wrong way and we walked for miles, in flip-flops, absolutely no energy, feeling really hungry. We eventually arrived back at The Spaniards at 4.15 to a much quieter scene. As we walked up to the bar to order, the board caught my eye, ‘Sorry, kitchen closed‘. ‘The kitchen’s closed’, I informed Maureen, who looked at me in complete disbelief. As we stood there in shock, a solitary roast dinner could be seen on the servery in the kitchen. ‘Shall we take that one and go and sit over there and eat it?’, Maureen said. We stood there contemplating the possibility for a full five minutes, while the delicious looking roast sat there going cold, but there was 100% no way, so we left, hungry.




Not So Rosy

On Sunday I went for lunch with my estranged mother’s estranged sister (visiting from Spain) and G2 (a relative by marriage) – how that works is that his mother Twirley married my grandfather (in the 80s) but unfortunately grandpa snuffed it shortly after, leaving Twirley very nicely off, thank you very much. We had a really nasty meal in a Hampstead pub and then something TERRIBLE happened. I left my DISCONTINUED rose tinted Armani sunglasses behind. I can picture them, exactly where I left them on the table. What a ridiculous thing to do – fancy leaving my sunglasses on the table and not on my head! I had had a premonition only last week, whilst looking at my glasses and marvelling about how long I’ve had them and how much I love them; the thought crossed my mind, ‘You’re about to lose them.’ And now they’re gone! It  dawned on me whilst watching Modern Family with Lurky and Son – the horror hit me. Establishing that indeed they were not in the house and that it was not all a horrible dream, I rang the restaurant but oh no, they had gone. I spent the whole evening trying to track down a replacement on the internet but came up with a big fat zero. However, I did manage to find some Raybans that look like they could fit the bill. All I have to do is choose between the gold frames (I’ve always fancied) or the silver – so on Saturday me and Agbertha are going to hit the West End, so as to try before I buy.


P.S. I realise that this sounds really shallow but believe me, I do appreciate that the only thing on my ‘to do’ list is to get a first class stamp and that my biggest tragedy this year is the loss of my sunglasses; my life is blessed.
