Last week was so busy, but snatching a day to hang out with Dave was fab, we had such a lovely day hanging out. Having decided to stay local, we took the dog and explored our hood, meandering past the tube station by the common and along Tooting Broadway,taking in the sights and sounds of the lively market day. We stopped off at Boom Bap Burgers for a delicious lunch — and let me tell you, boy were the burgers yummy? Like really nice. My mouth is watering now, just looking through these snaps.
After devouring lunch, we mooched around the market stalls and stumbled on this little side alley. I was amazed by the wonderfully crazy graffiti and naturally saw a photo opportunity. We headed along to find the best light for that perfect shot spot. I like graffiti, the mix of chaos and control. I think the tones woven through the art work really drew out the coloured embroidery on this pullover (which has been promoted to a current favourite of mine).
Having worked up a thirst, we ambled to our beloved coffee shop-meets bar, it’s our local, called The Graveney and Meadow and best of all its dog friendly so Coco gets to hang out too . We spent the afternoon sipping drinks, Dave, Americano coffee. Me, the usual sweet hot chocolate and Coco’s preferred refreshment, water. We relaxed listening to live music and soaking up the atmosphere. It was such a lovely chilled day and so precious to spend quality time with Dave, especially as just lately we have been like ships, passing in the night. Our crazy work schedules have not been well aligned recently, so this time together was the best.
I can’t wait to spend two whole weeks on holiday in the warm, scratch that, in the very hot Florida sunshine with him! Speak soon.
