Soooo this week was the week before payday (I get paid on the LAST day of the month!) so I have spent the past few days pretty much hibernating and waiting for the dollar (or, erm, pound sterling) to role in. Nonetheless, fun has still been had, albeit on a shoestring budget!
Hurrah for being a designated member of the press! I was invited to the gala night of Harvey at the Theatre Royal Haymarket. I took my lovely friend Emma as my +1 and a few of my other critic friends were going to so a lovely evening was had by all (review here.)
After the show my friend Ed and his boyfriend Pete treated me and Emma to a cheeky wine at “Half Way To Heaven” – which perhaps would be better named “Half Way To Hell” – it’s like the place all the people who are too drunk to get into other venues go. On Monday night it was karaoke night with a weird mix of suits and drag queens “rocking” the mic!
On Tuesday I recorded my radio show at the Shoreditch Radio studios. This week’s theme was spring – give it a listen here!
I had a night in on Wednesday night and Will and I made chilli and chips with leftovers in the fridge and it was an actual delight. Coupled with a beer and an episode of Better Call Saul – I was very happy indeed.
On Thursday me and a few of my work friends had pizza at lunch from the lush place round the corner, however I wolfed it down so quick I forgot to take a picture. BUT In the evening a made a lovely poached egg, mushroom, sun blushed tomato and rocket salad.
Will’s brother Ryan came round and we helped him work on his script for a comedy film he wants to shoot.
On Friday I had to get my nails done due to a minor emergency and finally bit the bullet and had my trusty gel nails removed to give my real nails a break. Whilst they look good now it is only a matter of time til they snap!
I decided that I was going to go for a drink with Michaela on Friday night as it was Friday after all! We headed out to West Hampstead and some kindly chaps bought us s couple of gins.
Will and I headed to Southfields for his aunty and uncle’s diamond wedding anniversary. It was really nice to see all of Will’s family and celebrate such a landmark achievement! Will’s mum Sue had made a fantastic cake for Peggy and Chick and they even got a letter from the queen with a rather marvellous tassel.
After laying in for probably a touch too long, Will and I went to the local sports centre for a swim and a game of badminton and I was most pleased my newish pink trainers could have a little outing :)!
Now there is a roast in the oven – thank god! In fact…publishing this blog took a little longer than I had planned due to some emergency admin (snooze) SO YEAH HERE THE ROAST IS:
Aint no party like a roast pork party! Make of that what you will! For pud we had a controversial cadbury’s Creme Egg ice cream… it was egggggggggcellent. (NOT EVEN SORRY!)
SO next week I get paid, so expect to see more exciting things than just my dinner! I even have a chocolate making masterclass at Hotel Chocolat to look forward to ! YES!
