hey, just chillin'... Finally met up with my Igbo sister Nneka @ndamuslondon in the Dirty South and had all the heart eyes for this bag . But let's not talk about how much my foot swelled up today in this heat or how we brought our own alcohol to a pub garden or how we gave the feral cat evils or even how Nneka was propositioned by an old, Italian man Instead, let us focus on how I had the best homemade lasagne I have ever tasted in @cherryandice27 (thanks Will ), how I broke my drinking during the week ban (again ) by drinking 3 cans of G&T on a Wednesday and how a mum friend of Nneka's, who I met for the first time today, decided to surprise us by secretly paying for our meal I am reminded that there are very lovely people in this world and now have a few more things to be grateful for. Might even venture South for pleasure a bit more often...perhaps
