Can you get New York style bagels in London anywhere? 0 Vote up! https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/250774576?preservedRefer… 0 Vote up! I got asked that in hospital with a broken arm. I was more than a bit grumpy so I said to the nurse 'A cold beer from the fridge and half a pack of cigs. And if there's any red wine left over from last night I'll have that too". Stupid woman was writing all down. Don't try to joke with these people. 0 Vote up! “What we eventually run up against are the forces of humourlessness, and let me assure you that the humourless as a bunch don't just not know what's funny, they don't know what's serious. They have no common sense, either, and shouldn't be trusted with anything.” 0 Vote up! To answer the OP yes you can get good bagels in London, but only in about three places, and they’re half the size and twice the price they were 4 years ago. 0 Vote up! Current routine is changed as of 10 days ago. Try to quietly access office above where new puppy sleeps. Catch up with any overnight activity/news before she stirs. Head down as soon as she does, hopeful that today will be the day without a puddle of pee to greet me. So far no morning poohs until she has eaten. Clear up her pee. Feed her, and take her out, having flicked the switch on the coffee machine as I walk past it. Praise her for poohing. Bag it before she contemplates eating it or running through it. Play tuggee with squeaky duck until she settles. Drink coffee. 0 Vote up! Bertha what is your definition of a good bagel as opposed to bread imitating a polo. Which variety do you favour? 0 Vote up! Wake up at 6ish. At the moment my RA is affecting my hands so they’re very stiff first thing. Right hand worse at the moment. So, I try and manipulate that with the other before getting up as getting out of bed with only one hand working properly is a bit painful. Get up and shower, which helps ease everything off a bit. Feel a bit like the Tin Man before oil can time. Make up & hair & get dressed. Head downstairs to feed the animals. Make tea. Take medication. Wait for the useful stuff to kick in. Leave around 7:15/7:30ish. So there we go. Couldn’t find the humour aspect this morning. Pain is a fvcker. 😞 1 Vote up! A good bagel is chewy and burnished with sweetness. I like an onion one if fresh, else plain. 0 Vote up! Used to hit up H&H bagels in NYC back in the day. Widely agreed to be the best in the city. Manhattan is now so sanitized I wonder whether those places still exist. 0 Vote up! I get up around seven. Get out of bed around nine. And I don't worry about nothing no, because worrying's a waste of my time. 0 Vote up! Cuppa, eat breakfast whilst wordling. 0 Vote up! I get up and immediately open the kitchen door 1 Vote up! do u look at tiktok for bagel ideas? wtf is on it worth spending c.30mins of a morning? srs q. 0 Vote up! I don’t understand why bagels aren’t a thing in London. I miss a good bagel. Montreal ones are the best 0 Vote up! cos they're not as good as a sandwich 0 Vote up! In Manhattan it’s Finn’s Bagels for me (10th Avenue, between 36th and 37th) 0 Vote up! Good bagels (actually pronounced beigal as in bye) are better than sandwiches. The stodgey impersonators usually doing the rounds are far worse than sandwiches. 0 Vote up! This is a low carb thread now! Alarm at 5.30, let the dog out and feed the cat whilst getting a coffee. Back to bed for half an hour. Water the greenhouse and allotment, let the chook out, loo and ablutions and get dressed. Bed making, quick tidy, start work at 7.. plough til 5.... but only for 4 days a week 0 Vote up! N10 do the best bagels. Roni’s are good too. Prefer their pita tho. New York bagels as PS rightly states are bread polos. 0 Vote up! Morning routine get up, take vitamins and asthma medications eyes drops. Put kettle on, open blinds downstairs and feed cats, empty dishwasher, put load on. Make coffee. make kids beds, get kids up, dressed, clean teeth - theirs and mine, make them breakfast home learning Make lunches, make sure bags are packed me get dressed and ready, make our bed Shoes on - me and kids into the car and out we go 0 Vote up! In the morning, if my face is a little puffy, I’ll put on an ice pack while doing my stomach crunches. I can do a thousand now. After I remove the ice pack I use a deep pore cleanser lotion. In the shower I use a water activated gel cleanser, then a honey almond body scrub, and on the face an exfoliating gel scrub. Then I apply an herb-mint facial masque which I leave on for 10 minutes while I prepare the rest of my routine. I always use an after shave lotion with little or no alcohol, because alcohol dries your face out and makes you look older. Then moisturizer, then an anti-aging eye balm followed by a final moisturizing protective lotion. 4 Vote up! Wake up and hit the snooze button a few times and then ten minutes of browsing e-mail and social media before getting up, having a shower, getting dressed and heading for work. If I'm working from home I'll throw in a bowl of cereal between getting dressed and heading for work. 0 Vote up! OB makes her kids beds before she gets the kids up. Seems weird. 1 Vote up!

I don't think I have made a bed since the Edwardian project I did at primary school where we had to use old fashioned sheets you just sort of throw the duvet roughly in place, no? 0 Vote up!

(a) wake up (b) your mum (c) shower (God knows I need that after (b)) 0 Vote up! Mine involves the usual stuff with the addition that first off, 6.30-7, my OH and I take the cats into the garden. Two on jackets and leads, one free roaming as he is scared of the fences! Cat 2 (Ruprecht) and 3 (Baloo) are then allowed to have baby quail chicks and normal chicks together to get them more integrated so my morning usually involves me running around the garden in gym kit with day old chicks tied to elastic. I appreciate many will judge for this. We have 28 days before the cat protection fencing goes in at which point the herd will be released without supervision and our mornings become relatively normal again. 1 Vote up! is this literal chicks running around the garden? and the cats? which are on leads? and you wonder why we may judge you for this? and the cats have jackets? are they bespoke ? or just off the peg? 1 Vote up! Not quite Clubbers! They are frozen. The sort that people who have snakes and reptiles buy. Defrosted overnight and then they get to have them as long as they play nice! Their jackets are obviously bespoke! But from a woman who makes cat jackets to be used with extendable leads. Fenton has a camo version and Baloo has a black one with skulls and crossbones on. 0 Vote up! ok. so this makes a bit more sense. you're training them to be lethal killers. but then making sure they can't escape with cat proof fencing? 0 Vote up! well dressed killers i guess 2 Vote up! 7.00 Husband gets up. 8.00 He brings me tea in bed. 8.30 I get up.

OB makes her kids beds before she gets the kids up. Seems weird. Also cleans teeth before breakfast wtf 0 Vote up! 4:30 am. I wake up. Instantly. From the fogginess of dreams, to the readiness of full consciousness. As I have done for over fifteen years. A quick kiss to my wife’s sleep head, I proceed into my morning routine. Glancing into my children’s rooms, somewhat envious of the sleep of youth, I proceed downstairs to the kitchen, the smell of freshly brewed coffee filling my senses. Peering out the window, the calming darkness remains, intermediate havens of light shine as beacons from my dozen backyard ambiance lights, enhancing the beauty of the winter landscape. Coffee in hand I head to my office. The glow of twenty-four screens erupt to life as I enter. Alexa automatically begins unrolling my day, highlighting my agenda – meetings, calls, activities, both personal and corporate. Four screens auto-load into various local and global news feeds – reminding me that there is a much greater world out there. Two and a half hours till my children, my wife awake. The world never stops moving, never sleeps. It is digitally connected. Everything real time now. Live and per second. Alive. The dots are moving and my world connects. I close my eyes for one second. I pause. I smile. Eyes open. I feel the energy. The excitement. The passion. A new day begins. 2 Vote up!

The integrated chicks on leads and cats lost me a bit. Wake up, put kettle on, do any left over dishes, make coffee, drink coffee, listen to meditation to persuade myself life is good when really mine is rather lacking in quite a few areas, make a smoothie in blender, shower, make bed, do some yoga 10 minutes, go for a walk somewhere green.
