Phoebe Waller-Bridge recently teamed up with Vanity Fair to document her “typical London day.”

“I’ll always have a Yorkshire tea in the morning,” she begins in the video, sitting in a plush, red velvet chair with equally plush, red velvet curtains behind her. She continues, “With obviously hot water, don’t want to spell it out but we need to get it right.”

“Then, a little bit of oat milk,” she says, reaching for a porcelain creamer. “Not sure if that’s this milk but we’re just gonna let it go,” she jokes as she pours the milk into an awaiting tea cup. “And just put it in this cup and pretend there’s water in it for the sake of this charming little video,” she giggles before taking a sip. “Now we can start our day.”

Her next steps are to catch up on tabloids and newspapers. She says she loves the Financial Times for the pictures of “people shaking hands” and the “small print.” She then explains the different ways Londoners commute to work, including buses, the tube, and bicycles. Lunch is “probably gonna be from Pret,” referring to the chain Pret A Manger, but you won’t find her discontinued favorite, “the crayfish sandwich.” Your lunch conversation will consist of questions like “You all right?” because Londoners “can’t really say what their real emotions are.” Later, 4:00 of course means tea and biscuits.

“Theater in the evenings is a big part of London life,” she says. After the theater, you’ll probably go to a popular chain of pubs, Wetherspoons, where you’ll eat some crisps and play some board games.

After getting out of the cab that took you home, if you’re lucky, you’ll see “a fox, in the dead of night, swaggering down a London street.” Then you climb into bed “and just wait for Maud, your squirrel, to wake you up in the morning for another London day.”

“Cheerio,” she concludes with a laugh.
