The second week of January – and the first week back in London for me – was back to business straight away. I was back at work on Monday, unpacked and tidied up in the evening, made myself some noodles and read a good book.
Tuesday was pretty much the same, while also doing errands, buying gifts and getting organised.
On the Wednesday it was my darling boyfriend’s birthday, so I took him out for a night on the town! First champagne (and a cheeky G&T!) at Sky Pod Bar, taking in the lovely view!
Followed by dinner (and more drinks) at Sushi Samba with more amazing views. Can you sense the theme?!
Thursday was head down working and putting things away at home. I always stock up on everything from cheese to body lotion to mouth wash when I’m in Sweden and it takes me a while to find space for all these extra items.
Friday night we had our usual burger before going to the cinema to see Cats. Not that we expected it to be good (it wasn’t!) but we wanted to make up our own mind. A little bit entertaining, but a total car crash of a film, but mostly it was just REALLY WEIRD! If you’ve seen it you’ll appreciate this little video – it’s spot on!
We stayed in on Saturday night and I cooked. Prawn cocktail in lettuce leaves (this recipe + avocado) followed by…
…homemade Dover sole a’la meunière which was absolutely delicious and so much fun to make! Will post the recipe soon.
For pudding we had Gino with vanilla ice cream. Yum!
On Sunday we had a lie-in and our favourite breakfast and then we decided to go for a refreshing walk on Wimbledon Common.
It was lovely to be outside and get some fresh air and check out the swans and the ducks in the pond. Little pleasures!
Absolutely starving we had a late lunch at The Ivy Café in Wimbledon Village before heading back.
For supper I made us a really nice chicken curry (will post the recipe soon) and we watched some TV before hitting the hay. Such a lovely weekend (and week)!
