A WORKING TITLE

A very belated Merry Christmas/Happy New Year from me to you. Truth be told, I didn’t post before now because ever since January I’ve been victim to the classic January Blues. Until this year, I’d never really experienced them like this. It has genuinely felt miserable. It’s included a few bouts of (sober) public crying, one […]

Don’t Worry, Eat Sushi

I’m about to say a sentence that you probably never expected to hear: there’s a new Japanese/ Peruvian fusion restaurant on Clapham High Street and it’s SERIOUSLY DELICIOUS. Mommi is the latest raw bar and grill that cooks up the freshest Ceviche and Chirashi sushi, with a healthy side of LA interior and art. I […]

Pulling Myself Together

When I want to pretend I’m a ‘together’ person, I leave the reality of my applications/emails/desperate attempts at career organising in my very tiny flat and go into the outside world, to mingle with those that seem to be sorted. (I say seem because no one is ever really sorted – and that’s a philosophical point you can […]
