A quick mention of Willow restaurant on Denmark Hill [memo to self: find address], which we visited on Wednesday last week. Small, comfortable, surly waitress, limited menu, great food, full of doctors (not in their white coats) on account of it being next to the hospital. Not sure if I would go there again as despite the good food it just didn’t feel right; kind of unwelcoming. Really good food though — although expensive.
On Monday night, just before midnight, my area of Camberwell was plunged into darkness. It was pretty damned eerie; streetlights, houses, everything was unlit. I don’t think I’ve ever seen London like that; you could see more than four stars, for Christ’s sake. Out of our front window the City of London was beautifully lit and looked romantic. We padded around the house with candles and savoured the moment (which was only slightly spoiled by the continuous wailing of burglar alarms, set off by the interruption to their power).
At 1am the lights came back on and the mood was spoiled.
