I’ve made my way across the globe to the UK, aka The Cold Zone, and feeling a little jet lagged.
Unfortunately I’m off to work this morning, for the first of my business meetings, while you’re all living it up at your tasty BBQs and soaking up the warm weather *sob* *sob*.
I’ll probably eat some Tim Tams and have a nice cup of English breakfast tea (which is just called ‘tea’ here). You know, there’s so many Aussies that you can buy Tim Tams in the supermarket!
What I won’t do is turn up to a Walkabout Bar. They’re themed ‘Aussie’ bars decorated like an RSL with large pictures of sporting heroes such as Shane Warne on the wall.
I’ve never been inside one and I’d like to keep it that way. Let’s just say that there’s a lot of beer consumption and larrikin-like behaviour that goes on in them. I’d rather have a drink in a cosy Soho bar.
There’s not going to be much time for play on this trip but I do have a date with Helen from Food Stories to eat a ‘Soho Special’ at Bodeans BBQ Smokehouse restaurant – mmm pulled pork, ribs and ranch sauce!
So although it’s 5 degrees I’m still in a festive mood. As well as being Australia Day today also marks the day Dillon and I got together – 9 years that have flown by (1 of which as husband and wife).
It’s also the birthday of my two very dear friends Claire and Ben – hooray for your birthday being on a public holiday! Hope you have a wonderful day, sorry I cant be there with you.
Chat to you all soon.
Would love a vote if you get a chance. Go on, I’ll be your best friend….
