On Sunday evening i was whisked off for a very romantic evening at the Sky Garden in the Walkie Talkie tower in the city. This place hasn’t been open long, but as soon as i heard about it i was desperate to go, it combines my main loves in life, skyline views of London and cocktails! What more could a girl want!
As i mentioned before, last week was my lovely friend Chloe’s birthday. So on Saturday we headed to Richmond for afternoon tea, or at least that was the plan. The birthday girl, my self, Simona, Sarah and baby Ivy all trotted up to the Tea Box, only to very quickly be turned away as they had no space. We were all a little disappointed but didn’t let it dampen our spirits, we were celebrating after all, one crumby little tea room wouldn’t ruin our day! So we headed to the river in search of somewhere warm and cosy for a late lunch instead. Sarah spotted Jackson and Rye which set just a little bit back from the river and we all decided this was a great choice.
Today is my beautiful friend Chloe’s birthday (HAPPY BIRTHDAY) so as part one of her celebrations we went to go see The Nether at the Duke of York’s Theatre on St Martin’s Lane. I’m a huge fan of the theatre so i was pretty excited.
Let me give you a little background on the play. It was written by Jennifer Haley and is only running for 12 weeks so grab tickets while you can. With out giving too much away, the play is about an online realm where real people can log on and depict themselves as whoever they want to be. Completely anonymously. These realm’s seem and feel like real life, all the normal sensations seem real. So then throughout the play you are posed the question of, should what you do in these realm’s have real life consequences as all your actions seem so real. I don’t want to go into any more detail than that!
We grabbed a quick burrito from Chipotle on the way and then headed for the theatre.
Tonight was family dinner, so we headed to a fairly new place in Weybridge called The Tree House. Its been open a little while now, and its safe to say, the location could be classed as somewhat doomed! Every restaurant that has been there before it hasn’t lasted long. Its hard to say what the reason could be. Most of the ones before it were chains so that could be why, but theres also no parking which for families is always a big no no! However, so far, The Tree House seems to be doing well.
Last night I went to go and see my two favorite school friends!
I, like I’m sure most of you did, attempted dry January. It didn’t go well! I lasted all of two days before being taken to Proud Cabaret in the City, where i polished off a bottle of wine to myself and proceeded to embarrassingly dance on stage! But thats another story! So i then attempted dry january sunday-thursday. This has gone a little better! I’ve so far managed to resist temptation for mid week cocktails, which anyone that knows me will know is pretty good going for me!
