Menu - 24th May - Here comes the sun

What a difference the sun makes. Waking up at 4:30 am to get into the kitchen for 6 am is no longer a struggle, waking out to get the bus is a pleasant experience, not a nightmare. Produce is fresher and will only get better as the season progresses, going home in daylight and still having time to enjoy it is a joy.

You feel like you can get so much more done! It is no longer a struggle to put in 8 hours, but is much easier to put in 14 or more.

Of course you know all this already, but I thought I would remind you. Try getting up really early and going for a long walk before everyone else gets going. The sunrise as it hits the building and the peace of no traffic or people is truly wonderful. London is a beautiful city, especially when it is quiet.

Then come in for breakfast, read the paper, have a fruit salad or freshly baked muffin and a coffee. The day is sorted. No better way to start.
