The second week of September we had quite nice weather. An Indian summer almost. But even so a Monday is still a Monday and I just stayed in after work. Read a new book by one of my favourite authors and just took it easy.
Tuesday I had caprese with burrata for lunch and it made me so happy it was salad weather again!
In the evening we had dinner at Green Room before we went to the Margaret Atwood talk at The National Theatre. She was of course amazing, and so were the three actresses reading chapters from her new book!
The following day I went to The New Forest for work during the day and had my Pret lunch by my desk as usual.
Back in London in the evening I met up with a friend for impromptu cocktails and pizza. So fun!
Thursday I switched up my caprese salad a bit and added avocado – so yummy!
As it was a glorious day I took the opportunity to do work errands AND enjoy my first and only frappe this summer.
In the evening I made a really quick supper, consisting of cheese filled tortellini and fried mushrooms from the freezer. Super speedy and yummy! I also watched the first episode of a new series that seems promising; The Loudest Voice.
On Friday I made some puff pastry slices topped with prosciutto and tomatoes as a starter and then made our favourite prawn pasta, but without the mushrooms.
Saturday started with a lie-in and a cooked breakfast, as usual.
And then we decided to have a little picnic in the park so we could enjoy the gorgeous weather!
In the evening we went to a fun black tie party by the river and we got to sip champagne while taking in this view and sunset. A good start indeed.
But we also had our faces painted by a really talented artist and enjoyed a hog roast followed by an ice cream of your choice! Such a great evening!
Another lie in and another cooked breakfast on the Sunday before we got ready.
We shared a pizza for lunch before heading east, using several different modes of transport.
First the tube, then the DLR and then this cable car that I hadn’t tried before. Not the fastest route to the O2 but definitely the most fun!
Then we had dinner at Gaucho, enjoying steak, fries and red wine.
Next we had some drinks in the Sky Backstage bar while waiting for the concert to start.
We saw Muse for a second time this year and as this concert was smaller it was a bit more intimate, but I loved both concerts equally. And the new album is so good!!
Back home we had toast and hot chocolate before bed to unwind after a pretty full on but amazing weekend!
