Local Hero

Lifestyle

Happy 2018 everyone! Yes, I am slightly late but really, it’s an achievement I even made it out of bed to write this post.

Since coming back to London from my wonderful home in Kenilworth after seeing family for Christmas, I have felt super sorry for myself, hence why I have gone back into hiding and not written for a couple of weeks. I can’t believe I ever hated my home town so much, it’s quiet, calm and there’s nothing to do but go for dog walks and drink tea – IT’S LITERAL HEAVEN.

But, in an attempt to pull myself back together and into the real world, today I did the only thing that I thought could cure it – brunch.

I wasn’t feeling too adventurous so I just went down the road from Wimbledon to Kingston upon Thames. After a long walk bypassing about 3 Costa’s and 4 Pret’s, I luckily came across Local Hero – a coffee shop cool enough for me to sit in with my brand new Mac. Yes, I am officially a Londoner, I sat in a coffee shop with my Mac out looking as if I was busy concentrating on some heavy work – I hate myself.

Being the generic white girl I am, I ordered poached egg and avocado on sourdough bread. I’m not going to lie, if I go on to review my food it will literally just be identical to my last brunch post because really, every avo on toast tastes the same. Anyway, it was good and healthy which is the main thing considering the amount I have consumed over the past few weeks. I also had a hot chocolate which I will rate, because everyone deserves to find the best hot chocolate in the world and I want to make that happen for you. Overall, the bev was nice. A 7/10. Could do better. (I actually grabbed a Mcdonald’s hot chocolate before coming home and it was far preferable but obviously not as pretty).

Speaking of Local Heroes, whilst walking through Kingston and trying to avoid the Topshop sale *control yourself Abs* there were a group of guys busking. Obviously this isn’t out of the ordinary but I happened to read the sign they had written and it said they were busking for 24 hours in order to raise money for the charity Calm, an organisation dedicated to preventing male suicide. I really admired what they were doing, and being a cause close to my heart, it made me happy to see there is some good left in the world.

Now, I am going to go back to my cold, sad, little flat in hopes of mending my broken window and making the wifi actually work so I can continue pitying myself whilst watching Parks. Wish me luck!

Hugs and wishes,
