And in the gossip section, I managed to leave the house yesterday for brunch with Guy and not get home until after midnight. Brunch at Balans turned into cocktails at the Duke of Wellington with Grant and Foo, then onto Trash Palace, the Friendly Society, the best Thai salad I’ve ever had in London and ok noodles at Sri Thai with Tom, Saul and Andrew, then more drinks at Shaun and Joe’s with yet more people.
Give it a go.
