Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

Farewell to the Italian shop
Sad news: the Italian food shop which I love so much is closing this weekend. My wife told me this yesterday after she walked pass it, there were signs about closing down discounts. So I made sure I went there today for one last visit and for a few purchases. I was devastated. The owners told me their greedy landlord had basically asked his pound of flesh and increased the rent, effectively forcing them to close within a week's notice. Infuriating. It was a short lived adventure, the shop having been here only since December 2015, but I had quickly grown fond of it, the friendly staff and their products. Many were a bit pricey, but never to the point of being out of my budget. I made some great discoveries there, which I will try to blog about in the upcoming weeks, as a sort of eulogy. And I could exercise my Italian a bit, which I did one last time. I am going to miss it.
