I wish I could make a theme tune for my weekly picture blog; every time I start penning it I sing Craig David’s 7 Days (“met this girl on Monday, took her for a drink on Tuesday….”) Oh Craig!
Well this week I gave had quite a lovely time! The weather has been agreeable and I have had a few drinks with friends and a few theatre trips!
On Monday I met up with my friend Rasha, who I last saw when I visited her in New York in October. She has just moved back to the UK after living in the US for a year so I decided I would take her along to see War Horse with me.
Before the show we had a cheeky espresso Martini at the Holborn Grind, which was most delicious!
War Horse is always a great show, it is very sad as it is set amid World War One but it truly is visually stunning. The Handspring puppets used throughout the show are incredible.
I love a quiet Tuesday and this was just that. At lunch time I sat in the Geffreye Museum garden of dreams at lunch time and ate my lunch and out of my beloved Van Gough lunchbox.
Amelia and I were supposed to be going to wagamana after work to review the new menu but something had gone awry their end so it didn’t work out. Instead we popped to Beagle after work (a nice bar/restaurant near our office in Hoxton) and had a good chat over a glass of wine!
I went to see the Young Vic transfer of Golem at the Trafalgar Studios. The show, created by theatre group 1927, was delightfully visual. If you like design and something a little quirky, you will love this show! (Review here)
On Friday night will and I went to a 1940s party at Kettner’s, which included a couple of delicious complimentary cocktails! There was swing dancing, burlesque and a good old fashioned cockney singalong – read more about it here.
Will and I got up a tiny bit later than planned due to the gin cocktail consumption the night before. Nonetheless we managed to drag ourselves out of bed and drove to Norfolk for a short weekend by the sea.
We met up with Will’s family at Horsey Wind Pump (actual factual name!) and had a good three hour walk around the Norfolk Broads and the coast, which is home to hundreds of SEALS!!!!! Yes!
Obviously you can’t mess with the seals, but you can get pretty close and they look so jolly!
Later on we all had a barbecue at the holiday home we were staying and finished the day by making cocktails and playing a ridiculous but hilarious role play game!
After taking a late morning stroll by the beach with the dogs, we headed to the pub for Sunday lunch. Mmm!
Will and I skipped off after lunch as it is a 3 hour drive back to London. On our way back we stopped in Newmarket for a quick visit to my mum, stepdad and beautiful dog Bracken. Luckily she had just baked a cake…’nuff said!
Now Will and I are back home and I am feeling a touch under the weather :'( I hope it’s just because I am a bit tired!
