3RD DECEMBER 2017
With improved internet connection, I am now just one day behind in my posts.
We began today with another enjoyable conversation with Mr Watts as he cooked our breakfast.
This process led me to tell him about the Watch Me, our favourite Sri Lankan restaurant in Morden. As indicated by its title, diners could, through a very large window, watch the cooks at work.
Our host and I found common ground in Lower Marsh, alongside Waterloo Station. Mr Watts ran a stall selling women’s clothes from 1964. Between 1963 and 1966 I lunched regularly in a café in that street. It is highly likely we were sometimes eating there at the same time.
The stall made a great deal of money during the hot pants craze.
Jackie explained how she had made her own, such as these in September 1972.
This afternoon, back at home, I spent far too long battling with internet connection problems in order to post yesterday’s tale.
We then dined on Jackie’s excellent egg fried rice with tempura prawns. I finished the Malbec.
