Coloured cups! Hallelujah. I struck gold at Hoochie Mamma. It’s next to the big medical centre at the corner of Missenden Rd and Carillon Avenue. It’s a modern building – a large coffee shop. I’d been past it many times. From now on I’ll be going IN. The cups were a beautiful tawny orange, the coffee was great, and the caramel slice (made by Hoochie Mamma) was to die for. I had bypassed two other coffee shops as having white cups and visually uninteresting food. This was my last chance before the medical centre. At Hoochie Mamma, there’s a vast choice of things that look so yummy but will be great to draw. I had given myself a special dispensation for chocolate because of having an appointment at the medical centre. Now that’s carved in stone that I can eat what I want at Hoochie Mamma if I have to go there again.
