Little Tuesday Catchup


I'm delighted to have the privilege to say that I am currently sitting on my sofa at home in Liverpool.

I came back to England on Thursday to go and visit my little mate Bethany as it was her birthday.

We did a licka bitta shoppin', a licka bicka partyin', and a lotta eatin' soul food and drinkin' rum.

Nah in all seriousness though we went to this restaurant in Camden called Guanabana, who do amazing Caribbean food; I ate jerk chicken, refried beans, peas and rice and it was amazing. I'd seriously recommend the place. You take your own booze-a-looze and just buy "Mocktails" of like non-alcoholic Mojitos and then just bring your own Sailor Jerry's.  I'm not a big drinker so two Mojitios was enough for me.

I have funny feelings towards London. In short, it's not the city for me. I'm nobody to criticize somewhere where 7.7 million people have chosen to live, but coming from Amsterdam which only has about 780,000 people in the little village that it is, which takes 15 minutes to get from one end of the Overtoom to Waterlooplein (long tings) it's a big difference with somewhere that takes half an hour to to go three stops on the tube.


I've got Nowhere Boy on while I type this, which I absolutely adore, and get a bit of a tingle when I see places that I know; John Lennon grew up in the same part of Liverpool I'm from, and there's also a clip where John's walking through town, and it shows the street sign for Saint Bride Street, and for any of you who have been reading the blog for a couple of years, it started off as being called Little Saint Bride, named after the street and tying it in with my surname.

Anyway. I have to say, the relationship between John and Julia freakin' freaks me out. I don't know how similar that was to real life; I know it must have been pretty devastating when he had to go and live with Mimi but devastation does not really justify closeness of their kind.

That said, I absolutely steam off Aaron Johnson.

So I got back to Liverpool and I've been spending a lot of time with my little Mum and my Brother, which has been an absolute dream.

I also went to see the Hangover 2 with little Adam Mac, which I thought was boss, but obviously the same storyline as the first, but you're lying to yourself if you didn't like it. The best part is at the end with the credits when they're looking through the photos - Bradley Cooper is always amazing in those.

I'm going to do a little best of the web post in a minute, just thought I better write some words.

Much love,
