Wednesday workspace


A nice story. This evening I met a friend to walk part of the way home from work. We usually part halfway, when she crosses Lambeth Bridge and I run on (I live quite a few miles further away). Today, for a change, I walked over her bridge towards Vauxhall, intending to take the train home. She invited me to her new house for a drink, which I hadn't been to before.

Are you still following? Anyway I left and decided to walk towards Kennington tube station, which I have not been to (at ground level) for about five years. Then, a good friend happened to drive by on his way home from work, spotted me from behind, picked me up and we went for an impromptu dinner at the Bonnington Cafe, which is one of my favourite places to eat in London.

A total result. Just like spotting a perfect Wednesday workspace first thing in the morning without having to source one myself. Which also happened today, when I saw this organised office (look at all those lovely baskets) on Brown Button.

The Bonnington Cafe is around the corner from my flat! Such a gem of a place. I love it ever so much. Jealous of your impromptu meal there!
