Husband persuaded me to use some of my precious leave for the first week of January so I had a very quiet start to 2018. Still managed a couple of things to get me out of the house though!
Celtic Manor – again
The Celtic Manor has rapidly become our hotel of choice for last minute breaks. We managed to fit in afternoon tea and I had an incredibly relaxing Elemis facial where I managed to suppress my ongoing cough for a whole hour. I was quite impressed with myself. On the way home from Cardiff, we managed to fit in a visit to the McArthur Glen Outlet in Swindon (of course) but also Ikea – it was a breeze as everyone else had gone back to work.
I love an Everyman. When Husband demands I see a Star Wars or a Bond with him, I will only go if he can promise it’s going to be an Everyman. Esher is our fifth different branch – to be honest, it’s not really that close to us, but we felt like a change and couldn’t be bothered to go all the way into London. We had an excellent hot dog and fries, I bought a bucket of popcorn, and we settled into the sofa in their beautiful art deco screen. I was a little worried as there were a bunch of children scattered around the auditorium, but Husband actually enjoyed listening to their animated chatter about his favourite franchise.
As for the film – eh, it was ok.
Sara Pascoe – LadsLadsLads
I love her.
Network at the National Theatre
An astonishing piece of work which I have yet to write about (I need to get on that).
Coffee and fries in Brighton
Someone in my team went to Brighton for the weekend and I recommended she visit BeFries because it’s just the best. I told Husband that we were talking about those beautiful Belgian fries at work, and the next thing I knew, we’d booked a weekend away at The Grand.
An entire weekend break just to eat fries. I can’t think of a better reason.
