On Tuesday evening, I went into the City to meet my friend D. D used to work with me, back in the day, and was my housemate in Shadwell for a few years.
One of the things I noticed when I was there was how pretty the City is. Of course, when I worked there, I never noticed – it was just where I worked. Plus, realistically, when you are at work, the thing that you see most of all is your own computer screen.
D and I met at Bodean’s, which is now a chain but is very nice none the less. It reminds me a bit of that American bar in Love Actually.
They have very nice beer and we shared a rack of baby back ribs. D isn’t eating carbohydrates so I got all the chips and she got most of the coleslaw plus a salad.
