The 9th & 10th; While I was eating, a labrador wearing a pearl necklace came in and did a lap of the room and left.
The 9th of July. I ate too much delicious food today and now I am paying the price by being totally full of wind. I have lost count of the amount of Deflatine I've eaten since I get home.
It started with me going to The Meat Counter for breakfast but they don't start doing it until Monday, so I went to Picnic and had two flat whites, then when Dolly's opened at ten, I went there and had some chocolate filled French toast. I was mind-blowing. I can never make it at home because it won't be as good. I decided to skip lunch as I wanted gelato too, So I went up to Espressini and had two more flat whites and tried to write about life since Cosmo came out. Daddy came to join me for a bit and the Google car went past! So we might be on StreetView soon!
Slowly wandered down to Ciuri Ciuri around three and had cookie biscuit, nutella and mint chocolate chip in a medium cup which was positively divine. I decided to call it a day then, and came back to the flat where I may have had a little snooze, I'm not sure, and burped about a million times.
The man from the bookshop saw me and thanked me for tweeting about them, and the girls from Ciuri Ciuri did too! I just think it's nice to promote things that I think are good!
So much burping. It's exhausting.
The 10th of July.
Well the day started off with a tiny rain so I chose to not go out until it stopped, which was about half ten. Mommy and Daddy were going to trek to a castle which I was fine with not doing, so I went to Espressini and read my paper. They just bring me flat whites now without me even having to ask, it's great! There was a man sitting at my table which was annoying so I sat on the table opposite and shot him the occasional glare.
For lunch, I went back to Dolly's for this warm crab and lemon crumble which has intrigued me for several days. It was like a fish pie - crab and lemon in a white sauce with a crumbly breadcrumb topping in a ramekin. It was totally different but in a good way. While I was eating, a labrador wearing a pearl necklace came in and did a lap of the room and left. This happened twice more, and I seemed the only one to notice. I felt like I was in a Wes Anderson film. Apparently the dog is always there and she just didn't make an appearance yesterday!
I walked all the way down to the docks and back, stopped to rest in the occasional shop, and having a double espresso ice cream milkshake at Picnic because I was very warm!
On the way back to the flat, I saw three long-haired dachs together, then three chows! I was so happy. Today has been an excellent dog day.
I found a place that does pancakes for breakfast! Going there tomorrow.
Flat White at Picnic.
Chocolate-filled French toast. So imagine a Nutella sandwich, then dipped in egg and fried and dusted with icing sugar. Yeah.
Nutella, cookie biscuit and mint chocolate chip gelato from Ciuri Ciuri.
