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

My darling dog has cancer

My darling dog has cancer About two-and-a-half weeks ago, on a Friday evening after the Husband had been away for work for the week, the three of us, He, Chewy and myself were sat on the sofa, having a catch-up. The Husband mentioned that Chewy’s glands (lymph nodes) were really big. A bit of back-story, he eats EVERYTHING! He has a keen eye for what we’ve termed a ‘poopsicle’ and happens to chance upon these seemingly tasty snacks rather regularly on his walks. He’s also partial to stale bread that some unwitting fellow has left out for the birds. Or the remainders of a teenagers discarded dinner. Let’s not mention the rotting snacks the fishermen leave behind during fishing season… I think you understand then, that we often have a dog with a bit of a dodgy tummy*. We’re no strangers to probiotics. So, obviously we squeezed probiotics onto his handcrafted meals, and kept and eye on what was going on. But coupled with the swollen glands, we called the Vet and they r
