R&R London Style

Hello, welcome to my first post, thought I would take the plunge and join the blogging world.

Just back from a bit of R & R in the big smoke London town, we packed a lot in one day.
Morning coffee at Caffe Concerto, Regent St, Piccadilly

A bit more wandering, can’t resist an Apple store (nice just to go in without worrying how much our poorly desk top is going to cost, or waiting for genius to sooth away a problem.)
next Anthropologie divine !!!!!!
and a browse through Liberty & Co

A short stroll though Carnaby St. I remember being so awe inspired as a child at the wonder of this road (the 60’s & 70’s fashion scene did not hit St. Helens quite like this.)
Then onto Lunch at the wonderful Mildred's

I highly recommend this restaurant, as a vegan you get used to at anything from disinterest to hostile annoyed comments like ”well what can you eat?”, “its only cheese, chicken, milk etc,” or “we can take out the ham!”

I had a scrumptious mushroom and ale pie with fluffy puff pastry, and hallelujah! crispy not soggy half cooked fat chips (you know the ones that chef’s like to force you to eat instead of well cooked crisp ones, some things don’t need improving on) and homemade mushy peas, heaven nice to eat good food outside the house that I haven't cooked myself. All this with great fast service, and meat eaters wouldn't even notice it was a vegetarian place, it’s a proper grown restaurant, yippee long way to go for lunch or dinner sadly we don’t have anything like this in Manchester.
All in all a pretty good day and we upgraded to first class on the way home, mainly to avoid slightly drunk and excited football fan.

Anyway more posts to come, so see you then.
