My dear dear friend is currently undergoing a course of radiotherapy in Bristol at the moment and is approaching it with such dignity and courage she is a complete hero. When I went with her last week, she took me to this small but totally fab cafe called The Workhouse Cafe on Perry Road. Amazing cakes, delicious baguettes, soups and salads served on wooden boards and trendy black enamelware. We enjoyed a chai and regular lattes served beautifully in French bistro glasses. It was certainly a day of contrasts, people watching the hipsters in the cafe followed by people watching in a waiting room full of people wearing their stories on their faces as they waited for treatment.
