As a belated birthday present, my friend Zahra took me for afternoon tea at The Connaught in Mayfair. We had tea, champagne, sandwiches, eight types of cake, and scones with clotted cream and jam. Being the birthday girl, I got an extra piece of cake with a candle, and "Happy birthday" written in chocolate on the plate - just in case I was still standing after eating my own body weight in all the lovely treats mentioned above. After finishing our feast there, I decided to walk back to Camden, as I couldn't bare the idea of getting on a tube or bus, potentially ending up asleep in a food coma.
