Restaurant Reckoning: MeatMarket, Covent Garden

Here’s a cheeky little post for a cheeky little dinner. Despite my intents and ambitions of making my career all about the creative aspects of life, I do feel that it is essential to work in a 9-5 city office job for at least a while, for only then shall you know the sheer crackle of hopeful electricity that runs through an office past 3.30pm on a Friday.

Restaurant Reckoning: Gordon’s Wine Bar

I talk a lot about my struggle to become a real life grown-up type person. Lots of things about being a FULLY FUNCTIONING ADULT still pass me by. Six months has gone since I wrote this and I have only just discovered the right place to put fabric conditioner in the washing machine (and sweet holy mother of christing god does it make a difference. My towels feel like the way nightingale song sounds). However, one of the ways in which I know that my slow slog to fully comprehend maturity is  ...
