This weekend was aMAZing.
I had such a great time with my friend "The Blonde Bombshell" (lets see what she makes of that title!).
I got there at about 9ish despite the snow in Staffordshire, and had the largest rum and cola you have ever seen. Followed by a delicious pizza. We exchanged news and hugged and gossiped and generally had a good catch up.
In bed by just after midnight and up at eight for freshly baked croissants and my new favourite Apricot Jam. I have to buy some! We then toddled off to Covent Garden for a mooch dressed for the dreadful sleet and snow. Thankfully none of it stuck
My friend, with an eye to my limited budget, had booked us into Bistro 1, 2 courses for £7.95. I had bacon and potato salad, with fish cakes for main. So yummy!
Then off to the matinee performance of Spamalot. So funny especially as I am Monty Python fan.
We always then round off our day out with Lychee Martini at 1 Aldwych Place which is a short walk away. Don't look at the prices, it will just upset you.
Back to hers for homecooked seabass, and more rum. Then Bed.
Up early again and she did bacon and mushroom sandwiches for breakfast. We watched the Grand Pix then it was time to go home.
But I went home in style Folks, I walked to the bus stop behind Chris Martin (from ColdPlay) and his daughter! They were not catching a bus..
I had accidently booked a 1st class ticket for the way home for an extra £6. That little bit of luxury on the way home was fantastic!
What I liked about the weekend was that I spread the cost. I paid for the theatre tickets in January about £35. Then booked the train tickets in Feb and organised an Oyster Card to use public transport cheaply in London - Cost £36. (£26 For staffs to london train tickets and £10 on the Oyster card).
So this weekend I went with £50 and came home with change.
But seeing one of my best friends? Priceless!
