I received a request from one of my readers who will soon be paying a visit to Londinium. What do you think of such places as Covent Garden, Soho and Piccadilly, asked Jacki Dilley? And can you tell us about it? Well, I don’t spend a lot of time in Central London these days, mostly because I’m skint. Still, I wanted to give a flavour of those areas and realised as I walked around taking photos with my crappy little camera, there were quite a few shops, streets and pubs I have visited and loved. So I give you a snapshot of the first area I covered: Covent Garden.

Just as the chill winds of austerity measures is starting to bite here in Blighty, some enterprising new mothers have found a way to make some spare cash. They are expressing some of their breast milk and selling it to make ice cream. Yes. That’s right. I said that. This delicious concoction, called Baby Gaga, is being made by an ice cream parlour in Covent Garden called The Icecreamists, which prides itself in creating unusual flavours. It contains the breast milk, cream, vanilla and sugar. Accompanied by a Farleys rusk (what else?), it’s going for £14.99 a scoop. I don’t think even Heston Blumenthal would’ve gone for this one.
