My commute to work still starts with a takeaway flat white from my local coffee shop @Summink Different. A habit i can’t seem to shift from working so many years in London. I needed it with London’s fast pace lifestyle. I always seem to be in a rush, a 24 hour rush hour! After my hour commute into London Waterloo, a bus trip across Waterloo bridge, I hit the cobbled streets of Covent garden. I used to swing by my favourite coffee shop, Monmouth and then The Nordic Bakery for my freshly baked croissant fix before hitting the office at Hogarth, the worlds largest Advertising Agency.
Now things are very different. I start my day at a leisurely pace by crossing the road with my two year old in tow, through a quaint little fishing village, whilst stopping and chatting to a dozen locals on route. I’ve put a stop to my croissant addiction but everyday I stop for a coffee and have a chat to Heidi, the friendliest cafe owner I know. I always leave her with a spring in my step. Perhaps its because her coffee is so good and her service is always with a smile.
