Once a month I meet up with a group of girlfriends at this lovely little cafe/bakery. I've been going there for nearly two decades now! And it never fails to warm my heart. So many memories sitting there in the steamy warmth in winter with the fragrance of good coffee and freshly baking bread enveloping me whilst I sit pouring over notes - or chatting with a few friends about life, politics, the environment, boyfriends...girlfriends...then wives...and husbands...then children! Friendships sustain you as surely as food and wine do.
Another place I love on the same shopping strip is the little garden nursery. Love the water vessel - reminds me of an artichoke!
I couldn't resist taking home hairy harry :)
