The Kings Head in Piccadilalilly

After Meebs first pint at The Puzzle we (London travellers) climbed on the tube and took a ride through to Green Park & Piccadilallilly (also known as Piccadilly to some!)

Pubbing in the UK is a serious sport, and there is only one word to describe the pubs - overflowing. People pour out from the pub, onto the streets. So ladies if you fancy a suited man, head to your nearest central London pub after work - almost any day is good enough, we went on a Thursday and it could have been a Friday in Cape Town for all we knew!

These suited men tell us that they are professionals. Professionals who either require Dutch courage to banter in the boardroom or, and I suspect this is more likely, they feel that client billing continues if you think about discussing the client at the pub - actual discussion not necessary!

But I'm being mean! We went to see Ben & Bush and we had loads of fun!

Lucky, Ben & Ameba
Ameba: we stood outside on the pavement to have a ciggie - or did we?

Ben & Alicia: whose crazy?

Meebs, Nats, Bush, Ben & Alicia

After a while Meebs & I got down to the business of suit spotting...

We were trying to use undercover tactics - such as fake focusing the camera on our drink (as can somewhat be seen in the foreground). This didn't always work so well!

Bush wasn't so sure about this, but he played along anyway.

We found a suit (actually a few of them) who were prepared to play our games... drinking games. Seeing as how we've just come from SA, we felt our constitutions would still posses their African strength! They did. The poms played. The poms lost - sorry boys, maybe you'll have more luck next time:)

When the suits fled home in their taxi's Meebs and I celebrated a well earned victory...

The end of a good night!
Thanks kids, lets do it again!

PS. yes we're using sepia...


  1. Just to say thanks to the boys :) It was awsome to meet up with you in foggy LT!

    Ben, glad that you had an evening off and let me now when you've got another eve free for a pint or three :)
    Bush, I hope that you were pleasantly surprised! Same goes for you, a proper catch up would be awsome!

    Sorry to the two/three suits that thought they could handle their liquor better than us...I bloody love Zambuca :)

    Anywho, Thanks again all for an awesome eve :)

We love you Chewy

Earlier this week we had to make the hardest decision anyone with a pet will ever have to make. You have to be totally selfless, even though you’re fully aware of the devastating consequences. I’m typing this with tears streaming down my checks and my nose running. Over the last few weeks Chewy had slowed down, he wasn’t his beansy self, but we knew this might happen and just took everything slower. On Tuesday we went for our walks, he ate all his food and got as many treats as he could. On Tuesday night, he climbed into our bed. His breathing was heavy, the lymph glands in neck had hugely swollen and he was struggling to breathe. He was disorientated and wouldn’t eat or drink. He kept wanting to go outside, but wasn’t able to stand. I slept next to him on the floor, in the other bedroom and came downstairs when wanted to. Eventually at about 5am we called the vet. She confirmed our worst fears. We booked an appointment for 7:45 that morning, we had a little time to say g

Dining room blues

We'd initially thought to give ourselves some time to live in the house before decorating, you know, to get to know the space and how it'll be used... two months in and the dining room is first up! It's pretty obvious, we're going to be eating in there! It was an easy decision (we both agreed with each other) the walls were going to be a dark blue, both have pretty much floor to ceiling windows next to them, so we weren't too worried about the space feeling dark.  Farrow & Ball's Hague Blue was our first choice... so we got a sample. And samples of Stifkey Blue , Drawing Room Blue and Pitch Blue , you never know what it's going to look like on the wall... although the colour samples are a pretty good indication.   With a sort of naughty-child feeling the sample patches were painted onto the wall. It felt quite rebellious just painting stripes onto the wall, clearly ruining the paint already there. But also quite exciting, taking the first of m

How To Buy A House vs Online Dating

Buying a house is like online dating. I say that having had experience of both. Before having met The Incredible Davey (he requested a superhero pseudonym, we shall refer to him as TID henceforth) I discovered that in order to be an effective online dater, you need to date like a man... by having at least three men who you're going on dates with at a time (not all together). It means that if one isn't as responsive as you'd like or you decide you don't like another, there are still two more to keep you amused. And the same applies when looking for houses! The similarities in the two experiences are uncanny: 1. You do both online. 2. It's brutal. 3. You need to be prepared to have your heart broken. 4. It takes hours of trawling to find one that you might like. 5. The photo's are often misleading. 6. You can 'try before you buy' but just the tip. You don't really know what's under the 'bonnet' until you're entrenched in the rel
