Listen in, listen Ian!
So far, so good. I have a desk, and some drawers to put things in, and accounts on all the computers I need to log in to. I have no work to do yet, but I will do this afternoon it seems.|
Now I'm going to explore the food options in Covent Garden. And check out the Oxfam shop at the end of the street.
Food options in Covent Garden are numerous.
I hope they move my office somewhere better than Shepherd's Bush... There's bvgger all here.
Are you quizzing? We should meet for lunch someday. Cityboy!
As you've no doubt established by now, no quiz tonight. I had to come back to Greenwich to order a repeat prescription, because I've nearly run out of insulin without noticing.
Yes, lunchtime meeting would be good.

Bloody hell! You already have log-ins, that's a good sign.
I used to get takeaway lentil soup from Sofra sometimes, I'm sure they could put a lump of pig in it for you.
I've just gone for lunch, as I don't have accounts on the machines I need them on. Pants.
I shall share Convent-ional Wisdom (ha!) on eating places later.
bdum tsch ;)
there is [deep breath]:
the sandwich shop at the top of drury lane what i go to most days because they have a good selection of pre-made sarnies so it's quick. also it USED to be my nearest one and i am worried they might go out of bizznizz without my daily £4
wings, almost to the corner of drury lane and long acre which does EXCELLENT panini (chicken and avocado or the sossidge ones particularly recommended), but is a touch pricier, also has mental (in a good way) staff.
eat on kingsway, good if you want soup
don quixote on kingsway, huge ciabatta melts that totally fill you up, free crisps and pop (importantly, source of MACEDONIAN diet coke).
abocado on drury lane, GIRL FOOD, avoid.
also pret/costa/sainsburys/burger king/about 10 others in easy striking distance...
oh, and "welcome to the neighbourhood" obv :)
There's an Italian, Il Buffone, which does good sandwiches and take-out pasta, on the corner of Drury Lane and Macklin Street. Also on the other end of Macklin Street there's a possibly unnamed sandwich shop that does good stuff. Between these two poles I oscillate.
Except! I've taken to going up to Yumnation
on days when a bit of a walk is called for. It's not as exciting as the site makes it sounds, they just do a nice mince wrap. And they're called Yumnation!
