There have been so many things I’ve loved this past week, it’s hard to squeeze them all into one post – so it’s going to be a bit of a long one. This week has really shown me that there are so many things to be grateful for.
It was a rare treat to have a sunny afternoon off work mid-week, with the boyfriend. We took a few hours to ourselves to just catch up on what’s going on, before heading to the Magical Mystery Tour. We sat by the canal at Kings Cross and ate BBQ’d pork and corn – at Shrimpy’s (which I’ll have to tell you all about some time!)…
…. and then cake at my favourite “celebrity” hangout, Caravan.
For all you One Tree Hill fans out there (don’t pretend you’re not!) Dan Scott was having a leisurely lunch – he didn’t seem half as mean as he is on the show!
I mentioned last week that I was off to our gorgeous friend’s wedding! It was truly a really special day. I’ve been gushing about it ever since. Their creative genius shone through in every detail, and I’m so grateful to have been involved.
Congratulations Kirsty and Steve!
I also managed an excursion to Highgate cemetery. A cemetery isn’t usually high on my sightseeing lists (hence why after 10 years I still hadn’t visited), however everyone who has been always recommends it. It’s a strangely beautiful, serene place, full of so much history. One of the most famous graves is that of Karl Marx - which is hugely popular, there was a queue for pictures.
I was also super lucky to get some tickets to the new play at The Old Vic. It’s such a beautiful theatre.
Kim Cattrall was the star of the Tennessee Williams play Sweet Bird of Youth. It was a surprisingly gripping tale, dramatic and funny – and although it was slightly on the long side, I really enjoyed it.
(… did I mention Seth Numrich? He was brilliant too!)
The rest of this week was mainly spent watching this! Whilst burning these…
Such a bargain from Muji!
It then ended with a special friend’s birthday (Happy 29th Mr Pink!). Where we made candy floss – you can never be too old for that.
And discovered what rainbows are made of….
Then to get rid of our hangovers we took a long, windy walk on the south downs.
You have to love the English summer time!
What an awesome week – thanks to everyone involved.
Happy new week everyone!
