A Week In Review.
Every day this week seemed to have something else to look forward to. A monday afternoon spent sitting taking in the sunshine with a cup of tea outside, birthday present buying expeditions, newly found nooks to have a drink with the boy and a quick but hearty home made dinner. Tuesday lazy lunches, brownie making and present wrapping furiously before midnight strikes. Wednesday starting at the stroke of midnight, a cake presented with one solitary gold candle, a smattering of presents wrapped in brown paper, makeshift sharpie ribbons drawn on top, sleep and then a day of birthday fun. The morning spent watching bad tv in pajamas, cups of tea, a wander to the Geffrye Museum to look at a history of interior design, we notice spring is here: the crocuses have arrived, lunch at Albion fish and chips and shepherd's pie, tea outside at Leila's an addition of the boy to the galavanting birthday duo, dinner at Pizza East laughs and champagne shared by everyone and a finish to it all with drinks at swanky Lounge Bohemia. Thursday off to Oxford! The countryside flies by and we're plunged into the old streets of a smaller city, lunch with a library cracked out friend, hours at the Ashmolean finding every piece we love, Fulham game at the pub with a father and friends, then back to have dinner in a real home with a garden, something that's been missing from my life. Friday breakfast that's been left out on the counter awaiting our arrival in the kitchen, a lavish lunch on top of the Ashmolean and a train ride back into the hustle and bustle of our city. Movie screening at the Gate in Notting Hill with a Q and A with Tilda Swinton, drinks at the Steele amongst friends that have been in each others' lives since they were 12, and to top it all off a late night Kebab at Marathon. Saturday starts with a good lie in, and then an oven pancake and eggs eaten out of little wooden egg cups, marmite soldiers on home made bread. Busy busy busy, yet so relaxing and wonderful, and there's still one day left!
