Brrrrrrrr! It's getting a touch nippy out isn't it? One equally chilly day, I caught up with some friends from uni for a spot of lunch along the South Bank - a favourite of ours as uni always used to be only a stone's throw away. And although we've visited the South Bank countless times now over the years, it never loses it's charm. Walking alongside the Thames with hands deep in pockets, we braved the cold for only so long until we sought refuge in Ping Pong. Glasses of steaming tea were perfect for warming ice cold fingers, and dim sum is ideal for indecisive people like me who want to try a bit of everything! I always really enjoy our time together. We've all gone our separate ways now and no longer live near each another (one of the gang now lives in Canada!) so these meet ups are really precious when they happen. After a warming and very satisfying meal, we all said our goodbyes - apart from Martin who I invited back to mine for a film. En route to the underground, we took a detour to Lola's in Waterloo station and bought a box of cupcakes to enjoy back at mine.
Forever indecisive, I picked four mini cupcakes; chocolate, passion fruit, and x2 red velvet.
And when it's that cold out, a hot drink is a blessing on the tube (white hot chocolate in this instance!)
