Meal Planning Monday

I am so unbelievably tired today. I think finally everything is starting to catch up with me and why oh why I spend my Saturdays running around like a headless chicken after a week at work I have no idea! Yesterday I conked out and slept until 11am! Then ran around again trying (and failing) to get all my jobs done.

My birthday last week was fantastic, although I spent the first bit of the day at work, I had a meeting in the afternoon which finished early and so I took myself off to Choccywoccydoodah for a treat.

I had the lemon and almond cake with a banana milkshake. It was too much. The chocolate was just too much and the banana milkshake was covered in whipped cream, so it was only half milkshake and half cream, not good. The cake was good and lightly lemony but it really didn't need all the chocolate coating, it was served with ice cream, coulis and chocolate drizzle. If you're going - go with a friend!

I then went for a barbecue at a friends house which was superb. We had grilled veggies, with meat from Muddy Boots butchers in Crouch End. We had steak, which was gorgeous, sundried tomato and goats cheese burgers and sausages. It was such a fab end to a brilliant birthday weekend.

On Wednesday I went to The Eighth Wonder of the World at The Thames Tunnel Shaft. The venue was fantastic but the play was amateurish and not very good. We left at the interval.

I also took park in a Flash Mob yesterday by the Wild Card Brewery in Walthamstow. It was fantastic, we practiced the routine first and then went out on the street and performed. There were about 60 of us in total and it was great to see the looks on people's faces as we randomly started dancing! You can't really see me but this is us dancing!

This week started off fairly quiet and by the end of last week I'm out pretty much every night! Tonight and Thursday is pilates as usual, the on Tuesday I am going to see a recording of Radio 4's The Kitchen Cabinet, not sure about Wednesday at the moment, on Friday I am going to see Paul Merton at the V&A and then on Saturday I am going to see Luna Gale at The Hampstead Theatre. Luckily I am so close to the end of term only a week and a half and then a week and a half until I finish for the summer!
