It’s cold in London today. Cold enough for a hat. Loving it.
So I wrapped up and took mini hound for a walk leaving my man sleeping in bed.
Best thing about going to bed 10 on a Friday is feeling fresh on a Saturday. Yes, I’m 60 years old.
Pretty out though.
Woolly had a blast. We think he has some prostate issues so glad when he is running around like a crazy.
You’re in my heart little dude, we’ll fix you right up.
And my breakfast. Because delicious.
Now picking up lunch and then back for a snuggle in bed because life ❤
Sorry friends, I have been rubbish at updating this week. Blame work. Because I actually need to, you know, work.
Maggie, Erik and per came to town. We are Louisiana food and got drunk and found. What else. Baby cuz popped by as well.
At 3 I was ready to throw in the towel after bar hopping for what felt like days. But the crew wasn’t done so when I headed home to went in pursuit of that last dance.
On Saturday we had lunch at Petersham all the girls plus Lollo’s new man. Cred to him for being the only guy and rocking it.
Then more drinks. Because you know, drinks. We were all in different stages of deadly tired but persevered. We are nothing if not warriors.
Tommy and jack came by for dinner and we had life saving dinner at The Oak. And that was it from this Cool Gang. Game over. Home time.
Took W for a walk on Sunday and then the rest of the day in bed. Best ever. Very needed.
The rest of the week have been easy peasy lemon squeezy. On Wednesday me and woolly chilled out beans at Found
And yesterday Katta and me went to the Swedish Christmas fair.
Hallelujah ginger bread dough. Paced myself though, wise from experience know that my stomach don’t want too much delicious in one go.
Today polkagrisar and another night of home time before drinks tomorrow and the parents on Sunday. Pretty damn good weekend.
Spewing rainbows that’s how happy I am.
See you soon dad. High five.
You know how I decided to forget about the world and go for a drink yesterday. Well, I successfully did that. Like a pro.
Headed up to Found after work and met up with Charlie and went for a nice girl dinner just the two of us. Normally she is either working or me with dog but tonight it was just the two of us, a bottle of wine and GT.
Went to a newly opened tapas restaurant called popolo up in shoreditch. Delicious. Then we headed back to Found, had a couple of more drinks and added Louise to our girl night.
And since those ladies are awesome and crazy we ended going to a place Lou works the door – a very high end strip club.
On the third floor was this cool dude moose head
As well as a wealth of dress up clothes
We went straight for it (don’t want to think about what those clothes have been through before)
Then we got shown the hidden room behind a book case where everything is expensive antiques and a lap dance costs you a couple of months salary
That deserves looking sexy on a sofa.
After that the girls returned me to George and continued their night out. I needed to be put to bed to be bright and shiny at work this morning.
Or, kind of bright and shiny…but, the day was instantly made better by my man having brought down gumbo from tujacks for me to have to lunch.
I wrote this long post about Trump and the world and how I feel about it but it all got deleted so I give up. On this day. On the world. Just for today. I’ll be a believer again tomorrow but allow me to wallow in a bit of misery.
I will however go to Found for some hugs and a drinks tonight. Because needed. I also got myself a second advent calendar today. Because chocolate.
My first one is a massive (!!) beauty calendar and a Star Wars calendar for George. Because all kinds of awesome
But now. Giving up on day.
Went to Kirsten and Pete’s wedding on Saturday. With day of the dead theme. Seriously amazing. I think all weddings have to be dress up going forward.
Went to Tomlins and got my make up game going. Not too shabby if you ask me.
Did my man as well. Never has dead looked that sexy before.
Tomlins were amazing. Because you know Elin being all mc gyver and Ernst and like a make up artist.
Pete and Kirsten looked all lovely and in love and happy and stuff. Got a tear in my eye.
Dani and Flo was there as well and we got a picture with the bride.
Then crazy party started as it should when you are wearing amazing corpse wear.
Love this guy. So much. Even if he sweated away all the beads I so lovingly put on.
And these guys. Mainly because we look dead cool…(pun intended)
Around midnight we headed to Found for a drink and some talking because it was way too hot in the venue. And then for a tiny after party. Tiny because there was only 4 of us and I made us leave after 30 min because tired.
Sunday was spent like this ALL day after all that dancing. Pretty damn good. Especially having both my hairy heroes home.
You know you are in for a treat when you’ve got dinner at Katta’s planned. Because Katta is seriously good at food. Like mouth watering, why don’t I eat at hers always, good.
So me and mini hound are heading there tonight for some chill out Friday time. We might never leave…
However, I am trying to entice George home from east with his favourite things. Hands up and thank god for night tube, otherwise I would never see him.
I also have zero cool and slept in his t-shirt. And I must admit, it was glorious sleep being man and dog free. 9h without waking up.
To add to my non coolness I am also wearing one of his Star Wars t-shirts today. Double whammy on the nerdy. He has no idea I’m using his clothes, that’s what he gets for not coming home #revengelikeapro
(It’s not like he is not coming home without telling me, I know he needs to sleep up there to not have to do the 1.5h schlep in the middle of the night. But a woman waiting for her man does not think straight)
He made a cool ring for his friend though. It’s an A and a H for his initials. I now hope for more rings #putlike5ringsonit
Finally picked up my new glasses. Only took 2 months. They are pretty hot though. And in the 15 year scope since the last ones that was pretty much instant.
Scarf is because it’s freezing in the office. Our boiler is broken so always frozen people like me are struggling and dreaming of wearing a duvet. If only you could get away with onsie in the office…
Instead I eat the macaroons I celebrated my glasses with yesterday. Wins all around.
And sneak in Christmas when George is away. I told him it’s an autumn star. He believed me (ish).
We had a little moment him telling me his not a big fan of Christmas. So I gave him the bedroom Christmas decorations free. And then i bribed him with a Star Wars advent calendar.
But, I was outdone by George, or rather his friend arbi, who gave me the most awesome of wallets.
All other wallets go hide when me and my Vader wallet own the world (well, I wish, with my economy it’s more own the local supermarkets cheap section).
Only 36 working days left to holiday.
