Mum and I went on a vineyard tour today in Wales’ oldest vineyard! It was so interesting, I learnt a lot about wine making and got to meet some adorable llamas and very small sheep (so they can eat the grass but not reach the grapes!). It was a gorgeous day out with the sun shining down on us and our glistening glasses of wine.
Tonight Nic and I went to see The Upstart Crow staring David Mitchell amongst others. It was very funny! We laughed all the way through, even if a few jokes were a bit lost to our lesser Shakespeare knowledge…
Tonight I went to see The Lion King in the West End for the third time! This time it was with my sister so that made it even more fun. I already know I’ll see it again and again, what an incredible show and a wonderful way to kick off the weekend.
What better thing to do on the second day of the half term when it’s raining than go to one of the main museums in London of course!
Luckily I go there quite early, so even though I was quite damp from the journey in, I at least didn’t have to queue. The queue a couple hours later was massive! All in all a very cold and wet day, but with some culture in the middle of it all.
Tonight was another Steph date, where I take myself out to do something fun on my own! This date was see Wicked again (you can probably already spot the theme of theatre by now…) I had a really lovely time and cannot recommend doing this enough for yourself.
After waking up and feeling atrocious still, I rang the doctor for another appointment this morning. I luckily got one just after 10am. I was then given steroids for my chest and told to start taking them as soon as I got home (all six that I have to take in one go each day!)
After sleeping away the rest of the day, I woke up at 5pm feeling so much better. So much better in fact I made it to the play that we couldn’t cancel the tickets for! I coughed my way through due to laughter but I’m so pleased I went. After feeling quite down and very ill recently, it was just what I needed. Now, to tackle being back at work tomorrow!
Tonight was my work’s Christmas party and it was so much fun. Ice skating, followed by private dining and drinks, what’s not to love? I’m feeling very lucky right now!
Tonight was a date night just for myself, as a “well done me” sort of evening. I bought a ticket to see Matilda in the West End! I also managed to get upgraded to a private box which made it even more fun! What a treat.
Today was a lovely day celebrating my sister and her long-term boyfriend getting married! They got to cut the cake (made by mum) and we had a lush dinner with all the family. What a charming weekend we’ve had in Cardiff.
I went to a “swap shop” today at a vegan cafe with two friends. You basically bring along good quality clothes you no longer need, get given some tokens and then you can take away anything of what everyone else brought along! They also had a interesting speaker talk about how to have a sustainable wardrobe.
