this weekend, cabin fever set in. after the best part of 10 days spent cooped up packing & unpacking we needed to get out, so we went out for a belated anniversary lunch then spent a couple of hours exploring the EC postcode area.
the best discovery was bunhill fields burial ground. it’s fairly famous in terms of the plague & bodysnatchers but no one told me it’s overrun with squirrels. i’m a self-confessed squirrel whisperer but these guys are so curious they’re basically tame (& oh so cute, if my bag had been bigger i may’ve considered tempting one in there to bring it home).
next stop was the malmaison for their brilliant-value sunday lunch; we forgot how much food you actually get for your £20 so tip #1 is wear stretchy clothes. tip #2 is order a painkiller cocktail. 3-courses later we
wandered rolled around farringdon/st paul’s & i finally found the excellently-named bleeding heart yard, which didn’t feel quite as haunted as i’d hoped but was interesting enough & is worth a revisit – ideally on a suitably dark, misty evening.
as we waddled back to the bus stop we came across a closed set just by the bank of england. there were plenty of gunshot-type noises so it looks like some kind of heist movie will be hitting our screens in 6-months or so, if that’s your jam! i’ve fought off this food coma for long enough & tomorrow is the first day back at work post-move so my pjs are calling – happy new week!
