I put all errands and tasks on hold this morning and dashed out amid flurries of silvered showers and sparkling, sky splitting sunshine to meet, regular reader of this blog and long time friend, Mrs L in The Hummingbird Bakery, Islington (click here to find out more about them).
The Bakery is a perfect little pint sized place, cute as a button and filled to bursting with pink and rose and all the shades of pastel in-between.
When I'm given the chance to talk in my mother tongue, well, I will just chat away to anyone and everyone and so it was that I had a lovely chat with the lady behind the counter who made me a perfectly fabulous mocha coffee.
We were spoilt for choice but opted for the classic Red Velvet cupcakes. They were obviously delicious and tasted as good as they looked.
I can't really think of a better way to start the day!
