Decidedly more elegant dinner tonight. Found some lovely miniature figs in Waitrose and made a little salad post-post-work drinks with Sol. We went to the gorgeous rooftop at Boundary in Shoreditch, which apparently is not quite as amazing as the smug members’ club one roof over (not that we don’t appreciate smug here, of course; we just can’t afford it) but it is still rather lovely and it is free, and they give you blankets if it gets cold. Londoners, you must go.
