spitalfields 001On my last trip to London I went for a walk to the Spitalfields Market and spent there a whole afternoon. Isn’t it great, walking around such a beautiful variety of things old and new and knowing that you don’t have money to spend on anything? It takes the whole pressure off and leaves you free to just admire the place and the things in themselves (as opposed to frantically running from stand to stand, trying to choose what you like best and what’s the best price).

The coffee and chocolate fudge cake feature so prominently in the drawing because they saved my life: I had been a walking zombie and they gave me the very much needed shot of energy – plus, of course, they were delicious!
