|Breakfast at Katie & Kim's Kitchen|
... I tried out a new cafe.
It's called Katie & Kim's Kitchen and can be found in Picton Street. I don't know where I first heard of it. Maybe Twitter, where I discover most interesting things. Anyway, it's run by two young former art students (Katie & Kim!) who won the British Street Food Awards in 2013, and have served food from a converted horsebox and a local pub before opening a cafe cum restaurant with a constantly changing menu of soup, bread, scones, sausage rolls and cakes. It's a long walk from Bedminster to Montpelier so I ordered a plate of sourdough with ewe's curd, thyme and Greek honey to go with my coffee. The curd was delicious and, as ever, I wondered why my sourdough isn't as holey as anyone else's.
... I bought a new pair of trainers and a pair of trousers.
I've somehow damaged my plantar fascia and have been advised to wear trainers to support the ball of my right foot. The cheap and nasty trainers I bought for my short-lived experiment with jogging have come to the end of their life and needed replacing. I search in vain for something attractive but ended up with a pair of fairly boring black trainers that will have to do.
The trousers are from the M&S Sculpt and Lift range. Heads will be turned!
... I took the opportunity to walk down a few new streets and was rewarded for my efforts

... I took part in Bristol's Festival of Song.
The Gasworks Singers sang in St George's on Saturday and around the harbourside on Sunday. I was also treated to some inspiring singing and was particularly impressed by Kettle of Fish and Original Sing both of whom have gigs coming up in The Folk House.
