Saturday in London Town. I have waited all week for this day and it is finally here. This is what British people do on Saturdays. You are welcome. There is a British girl group called ‘The Saturdays’ but I will save that for another blog post. Let’s do this.
Saturday mornings start off with bacon butties. Er…what? Saturday mornings start off with bacon sandwiches with lashings of Coleman’s mustard. Let me tell you about the bacon in England. It is awesome. Even me, a vegetarian can appreciate bacon-visually of course. But seriously, look at this bacon.
I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. Saturday morning means that your littles (kids) go to football practice-boys and girls. Every Saturday in every park in this country, football is played as they try to bend it like Beckham, if you know what I mean.
Next stop the high street. Every town, village and city has a ‘high street’ which is aptly named ‘high street’ as you will see on the signs. It is basically where you can find all the shops, big and small and even a mall. You will also find the market there. While in Blighty, you should try to go to the market-it is far cheaper than the grocery stores and the men selling the fruit and veg will remind you Dick Van Dyke. Kid not. I go for the food, the jokes and that working class accent accompanied with dirty fingernails. Welcome to Blighty Y’all. Oh, you want to shop more? Well, I suggest you go down to Oxford Street. You will find EVERYTHING there. It is Europe’s busiest shopping street with 300+ shops. It is simply fab. It can get a bit crowded though.
All that shopping has no doubt made you tired and hungry. Time for the chippy (fish and chip shop). Then the afternoon is spent watching Rugby, F1, Football or Cricket. Tea time rolls around rather quickly when you are watching sports on TV. By tea I mean dinner. Saturday night dinner might be ham, eggs and chips/fries. You will be ‘well full’ as they say here which means stuffed. Time for a quick pint at the ‘local’-which is the local pub. Then home to see what Netflix has on offer. Happy Saturday.
