Anyway, so here are some of the things I enjoyed lately:
❤ Going on little strolls in my lunch break. I love exploring little side streets near my work and finding cute shops and cafés. Most people in my office tend to get lunch from the same places, because they think everything else is too far away, but I like the process of getting there, to me it's not just a means to an end, but probably the best component of my lunch break.
When we finally got there, everything was perfect. The spa was surrounded by absolutely beautiful scenery and we splurged on a massage each for Rachel and I and a pedicure for Alice. In the evening, we went for a lovely dinner (during which I ate pretty much a whole portion of Penne Pollo (without the Pollo) and a pizza, but let's not ask too many questions!) and fell asleep on the sofa after many hours of chatting and watching films. BLISS!
❤ On Wednesday I met my friend Stephi from uni for dinner at Mildreds and drinks. And again, it was so so nice to see her (I hadn't seen her since graduation, which is weird, because for 4 years I saw her almost every day, because she even went to Grenoble at the same time as me). I had a sunblushed tomato and Mozzarella Risotto cake with spinach, green beans, and a grape mustard sauce, and something like sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Yeah. Not a big deal. Apart from that it is. It was tasty.
❤ On Friday evening, Daniel and I went to see "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime". We had made reservations at a restaurant near my work after work, where I'm supposed to get a discount. Let me just say it was a super weird (and not in the good way, I like good weird) establishment, and we left after sitting down before even ordering drinks and went to Gourmet Burger Kitchen (or Great British Burger Kitchen how I like to call it, I think someone's gotten a bit too much into the Great British Bake Off). We then went to the wrong theatre, because it said "National Theatre" in big letters on the ticket and we thought Apollo was one of the theatres within the National Theatre. Turns out Apollo is actually about 20 minutes away. Woops. Definitely didn't do the maths, when google suggested two completely different routes to us when we looked it up independently, but oh well. The play itself was really good, it was very modern, which I often don't like, but it really fitted the story here.
❤ And then yesterday, we went to see "Piff the Magic Dragon". Yeah that's right, it's a guy dressed as a dragon that does magic. I told you I was into the good kind of weird! So yeah this was a mix between comedy and magic, and it was hilarious, we really enjoyed it! What was even stranger though, was that we met two people (plus partners) from my work! It was the smallest little venue, and the act was obviously very strange, so I definitely didn't think I could possibly meet anyone I know there (Daniel maybe, because he's got magic friends, but me??). We ended up going for drinks with them, and had a great evening. I love how sometimes everything just flows perfectly and you end up having a brilliant night!
So. As I said, this got pretty long, but that's exactly my point from the beginning, it just seems like time runs away, but in reality I do get up to some cool stuff (in my opinion, I know that a lot of people wouldn't agree that going to a magic dragon show is very cool hah), which is exactly why I need to start documenting it more.
What have you been up to lately? Any magic dragon shows or anything to report?
