We narrowed down our breakfast plans and decided to go to Uplands Bar, whose breakfast I had read about online as being pretty fantastic. Went for a nice little walk to find it, only to discover it was closed. London places have this really quirky idea that people only go out for breakfast or afternoon tea on weekdays, when in fact I don't understand who has time to do these things on a 9-5 schedule! Anyway, we kept on walking and discovered another little busy cafe and prepared to feast.
The full English breakfast is massive and is being blamed for heart disease which is rampant in this country.
Now it was off to Borough Market to kill some time before the game! This is a really amazing food market near London Bridge that we are so going back to when we're more hungry! ;) Just this massive market of all the organic fruits/vegs, cheeses, meats and poultry, beer, wine, and candy you could ever want.
Then we headed for Craven Cottage, home of Fulham football club! This was a friendly match against Celtic but you could tell the Celtic fans didn't care: they were ready and raring to go in full regalia! OMG, more alliteration.
After that we went on to visit Harrod's department store. They claim to have anything and everything, though I'm not so sure. They did have some kind of cools stuff, but for the most part I wasn't very interested. I did think the Pet area was cool: rabbits for 30 pounds and kittens for 1000. Lol...
After that we were really tired and returned home.
Done at my last temp job. Very sad to go! The head PA left me a great reference and I ended up getting a new placement for at least Monday, hopefully for a bit. Its a rolling contract because I guess they didn't like the last temp they had. :x We'll see how it goes. I'm excited to be working in Oxford Circus though! I'll be right in the middle of everything. :D
Next weekend is Paris!
