We first became aware of the infamous Shepherdess Cafe when we bought the NFT Guide To London 2008. Before we moved down to London we made a list of all the places that were MUST SEE/MUST VISIT to eat, drink and be generally merry.
The Shepherdess Cafe was on our list of eateries. We’ve lived in London for two years now and as a matter of pure coincidence, when we moved last summer, we moved to the same street that the Shepherdess Cafe resides on. Strange, but true. We commute past the cafe every day on our routes to work; about 2 weeks ago we were at the traffic lights and saw Mr Jamie Oliver sat in the window of the cafe (the windows are a sight to behold in themselves!).
We’ve never had a chance to get down to the cafe. We’re too lazy to get up ‘early’ for work and it closes at 4pm. However, recently, I’m rubbish at sleeping in on a weekend… So when I woke up at 8am yesterday and couldn’t get back to sleep we decided to actually do something this weekend – “Let’s treat ourselves to the Shepherdess CAFFFF!”. And my god, what a treat!
I ate about a quarter – they give you the biggest portions EVER! All the above and a huge mug of (really nice!) tea came to £12. CHEAP CHEAP.
I have to say though, the sausages just weren’t to the standard of Rossi’s (RIP). But aside from that, it was well ‘lush’.
The Shepherdess Cafe is located on City Road, 5 mins from Old Street tube.
I’ve just got in my my bicycle commute home and I wanted to share my thoughts.
It felt like the most surreal ‘rain’ ever. I actually feel like I’m in the Truman Show. The rain wasn’t like “normal” rain. It was coming down like an actual shower and it wasn’t cold?! SO so weird!! ALSO, the whole of Great Eastern Street was completely water-logged and apart from a few dents in the road, it doesn’t normally even have puddles when it rains! Very strange!
Deary me, my social (media) life has gone somewhat downhill of late! I am officially horrendous at keeping in touch with you my internet world…
I’ve had a tremendously busy couple of weeks (or months, I cant keep count anymore!). I actually thought the time was 9pm as I’ve only just sat down after getting in from work and putting the tea on – but infact it is 10:49pm – woe is me indeed!
I just thought I’d write a quick catch up blog before, well, bedtime really!
Basically, I’ve been working hard and playing harder! Theres been fancy dress, fireworks and actual FIRE… and some lovely flowers too. Man, it’s been ‘fabulous’ for more of a better ‘f’ word. AMAZING. Anywhoo, I would post some pic’s but I’m currently being selective with my face (and my friends faces for that matter) and the internet. Just because there are some unkind folk who would prefer to have an over active imagination and not think about getting caught in the act. LOLZ indeed. But this is by-they-by.
Lots of exciting fashionable stuff going on at work and home. I have lots of recent purchases to share and restaurants to critque!
But for now, I am off to bedfordshire for I am shattered!

You are looking at an auction for a pair of amazing practically new patent ankle boots.
These head turning ankle pixie style boots have buckle detail, a lace up front and inner zip. These boots are so on trend and will be a great AW09 wardrobe investment – wear with skinny jeans and a fur coat (see my other listings!) or with a ditzy print dress. Unfortunately I’m a size 36 and these boots are just too big for me – they were worn once to work and back!
Great for a variety of looks…Retro/Vintage/High Fashion!
This is a RARE and EXCLUSIVE find.
