I've been working on this brilliant book with The Two Davids, David O'Connell and David Fickling. But David Fickling is the pickiest publisher/editor on the planet (which is just one of the reasons he's possibly the world's best editor), so Dave and I have had to rewrite the script about five times now. So after the fourth script went kaput with Hannah, before it even got to David, I took it to town with me while I was running some errands (including buying princess tiara beads). I was going to set up shop in the atrium of the Wallace Collection, but I noticed this deli, Paul Rothe & Sons, along the way and ended up at one of the tables, having a big lunch and getting loads of work done.
Here are two of the dashing deli men, Paul and Stephen, and some of the fabulous old-time sweets they sell in the shop:
You can see more interesting photos of the place here. Marylebone Lane is so fab, it even has its own button shop! Princess Spaghetti would love this place.
