Jimmy Chew gets very excited when it's time for a trip in the car. With the exception of the dreaded vet, when that car door opens he knows he's normally being taken somewhere new and exceedingly sniffable. Alex had a rare day off work so we decided to take Jimmy with us for some brunch in Crouch End.
I'd love for Jimmy to be a therapy dog one day. It's impossible not to notice the big smiles he brings to so many faces when I take him out. He is such a friendly, gentle-natured boy and people just adore him. So why not put this to good use? I could take him into hospitals and old people's homes for cuddles! Everyone's a winner! But first I need to train him not to lick...that could take a little time.
We spotted a busy little cafe called Beam along the high street. It had tables outside and a decent breakfast menu so we settled there for some food.
Introducing Alex's fry up! How delicious and non-greasy does this look?
Alex was impressed.
My smoked salmon obsession continued but this time it was accompanied by pleasingly moist scrambled egg (it's a huge bugbear of mine when it's over-cooked) and yummy grilled halloumi cheese. Three of my favourite things coming together to make one lovely, fresh breakfast.
Appetite satisfied, it was off to Priory Park for a long walk in the autumn sun. A lazy Thursday with my two favourite people (well, person and pup) lay ahead; we had no real plans.
Don't you just love days like that?
