It’s been a slightly quieter week compared to the last couple, but here are my favourite 5 moments from the past 7 days.
My wonderful Parisian Soul Sister (we’re basically twins, though she’s the prettier, cooler one) Beryl came to stay over the weekend. We watched Halloweeny films on Friday night, and on Sunday I took her to my favourite local breakfast spot, Egg & Crockery, before taking a lovely autumn walk through Valentine’s Park, where we witnessed a man kiss a pigeon and we got chased by a squirrel.
I was sent a £30 voucher to give Eat First a try. They have a different selection of ready to eat, and ready to heat meals every day, plus sides, desserts, snacks and drinks, including bottles of prosecco and wine. I got 2 mains, a flourless chocolate cake, a chocolate chip cookie, 2 bags of crisps and 2 beers, plus the £1.95 delivery cost, all for £30.05, which I think is a pretty good deal especially as it all tasted so good! I’ll have a full review up on the blog very soon, but until then you can use code CHARLEY10 for £5 off your first 2 orders.
Van Morrison @ The O2
I managed to score some pretty cheap tickets to see Van Morrison play The O2 as part of the Blues Festival. It’d been a while since I’d been to a seated concert, but it was great to sit back and listen to Van the man play some blues. He was also supported by legendary guitarist Jeff Beck. It was a lovely chilled evening.
Beryl & I went for cheap, tasty pizzas at Pizza Union in Shoreditch on Monday. Pizza Union is great as their pizzas cost only £5-6.50 and taste delicious too! We had a final catch-up before saying goodbye until one of us is in the other’s city next.
Happy (Late) Birthday Baby Bro!
Last night I had my brother over to celebrate his birthday (2 weeks late) with James. We got him a chocolate Star Wars cake, presented him with his present and then we all settled down with pizza and introduced James to the Rocky Horror Picture Show. It’s such a fantastically weird film. I love it!
So, that was my week. What have been your #HumpDayHigh5’s?
