I caught up with a good friend of mine as she is leaving next week to be a vet in the UK. She will be sorely missed. Who am I going to go to Borders and read endless fashion magazines with? Who will have breakfast, lunch or dinner with me upon request? Who will I dress up next? =P
We had breakfast on Chapel. I had a New York breakfast for the first time. The creamy cheese on bagel with salmon and rocket salad was an absolute joy to my system.
The dogs wanted to come too, but they’re usually not welcome in restaurants. I wore a a Akanuke dress (vintage Japanese), with a gladiator belt, bangles from the Zurich flea market and a blue lizard skin clutch.
After brekkie, we trekked down to Borders and had our usual literary feast.
I have never seen such a well-dressed young lady working at Borders before. I begged her for a picture but silly me, forgot to ask her where her stunning neckpiece came from. I love her olive silk blouse and python shoes also.
I have walked up and down Chapel St thousands of times, but today was the first time I noticed this gorgeous building! Gotta love all the arches, Corinthian columns and eagles.
Plautus once said : “Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend.” I’d say ‘amen’ to that. Have an awesome trip Jo. See you soon.
