Because sometimes, Wednesday’s need to end with cans. Cheeky cider to take us towards the end of the week. I’ll drink to that!
Living a life of luxury today! I took a half day off work to spend some time with Rach for her birthday.
We went for lunch followed by wine in the National Opera bar and finally to see Everyone’s Talking About Jamie in the West End. It was my ideal day and we managed to somehow miss the downpour of rain at Piccadilly Circus, bonus!
The trains were a soggy nightmare this morning after the weekend’s storm. Instead of getting my late train, I got the late late train. Granted it’s much quieter and I secretly enjoyed being able to read my book for half an hour… But I probably shouldn’t make a habit of it(!)
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.
After storm Clara last weekend, it’s time for storm Dennis to give our fence another test of strength. I didn’t need much of an excuse to stay home today as I was already feeling pretty grumpy from still being ill.
With the house admin complete it was time to make some reading headway whilst listening to the house potentially moving three feet to the left due to the wind…
These weren’t from Nic but from our lovely neighbour for (luckily for us) isn’t a fan of lillies. Nic and I don’t celebrate Valentine’s as it’s surrounded by our birthdays and Christmas, but we did have a lovely evening at home in our own company.
I had a half day off work today. Mum is visiting and we went for a tasting menu lunch which was absolutely gorgeous. Afterwards we went for a gin in the Royal Opera House where I snapped this view. It was a very decadent Thursday.
