I read a post on Facebook yesterday that made my heart sink 😔. A London food blogger tragically took his own life jumping from the roof of Le coq d’argent after posting a final farewell blog post.
I never met Wilkes but I’d heard a lot of great things about him through friends and what struck me was the fact he’s grown so tired, not of London the city he loved or of the incredible food and drink scene he wrote so fondly, but of life.
I wanted to share this with you as a reminder that life is precious. Yes, it can be a struggle for us all at times but it’s also an adventure not to be missed.
In honour of Wilkes I’m going to treat myself to something lovely to eat today and make sure I give at least one unsuspecting friend a hug. I urge you to do the same.
