I have had a rather unusually eventful week. Compared to my otherwise dreadfully dull summer, that is.
To demonstrate, here are some highlights from this past week:
1. I’ve had a Russian millionaire stay with T (T being my partner) and I for a couple of days. Now that’s not something you can everyday! He’s a university friend of ours and it was lovely to see him again. Especially since it meant that we got to meet up with two other uni friends (who are currently staying in London doing fancy banking internships), and enjoy drinks on a roof top terrace with an amazing view of London, followed by a delicious meal at a Jamie Oliver restaurant called Barbecoa.
My Barbecoan starter was a crab salad with a “green goddess” dressing and it was probably the best crab salad I have ever had!
2. Also, T’s littlest sister came to visit and we joined her and T’s father + step motherfor a lovely day out. First we saw the Lion King at the Lyceum – which was absolutely brilliant and had me bawling the whole time – and then we followed the jungle theme up with dinner at the Rainforest Café. Although the food could have been better, we were there for T’s little sister’s sake and I was pretty excited about my first time in a Rainforest Café anyway!
How’s that for an adult Simba, huh?
3. I met up with my friend Sophia to see Tracey Emin’s new London exhibition called Love is what you want at the Hayward Gallery. It was… interesting. Let’s just say that I choose traditional oil paintings any day over display cases of used tampons and baby coffins. I still had a wonderful day though with Chicken Phó for lunch on the Southbank and I even had the luck of seeing a gorgeous Thandie Newton walk past. No joke guys, she was dressed like a hobo and had no make up on, yet she was FLAWLESS! I choose to take it as an inspiration rather than a reason to slit my wrists right here and now.
4. I’ve even been to the cinema this week! T and I went to see the premiere of The Inbetweeners, and believe it or not, but I really enjoyed it! Even though I initially only went to please T, as I find the Inbetweeners a bit too cringeful to take, I ended up being the one who laughed the hardest the whole way through!
As far as I can think: this past week only had two cons: the weather has been absolutely appalling and I caught a cold. But hey, who cares when the rest has been so great?!
