Sunday morning and Seb wakes us up with a heavy knock on the door. I try to suppress a fever while we have some breakfast in the living room and then head out on the streets of Hackney.
This black building is just a few streets away from our house and I just know that we will live in that house some day.
update: AND NOW SOMEBODY TOLD ME IT’S FOR SALE!!!! PLEASE BUY ME THIS HOUSE.
Walking up through the lovely Broadway Market I have to take my boys to see London Fields in all its glory.
Punk hipster boy among the flowers.
After having walked through half of east london we head down to the hidden mews of Shoreditch.
And to the Swedish bakery Fabrique!
All industrial and smelling of cinnamon and cardamom.
We order some buns and sit down outside as this autumn never seems to want to let go of the mild weather.
These boys talk about love and freelancing. Seb tells us about him and his girl now being official(!) and how it feels to be a full-time freelancer. I’m jealous. Jealous as in wanting to be done with studying and actually be out in the industry, working, producing and meeting people. It’s fun to learn but I want to DO!
And that’s all this girl can take, feeling the fever climb over me as a sticky blanket. Daniel and I walk back home and order Chinese takeout while binge watching brilliant Orange Is the New Black.
