Overpowering

G and I finally got round to celebrating our six monthiversary last night and went to Fire and Stone in Covent Garden. We had a really nice starter and then pizza. Basically the pizzas were named after cities around the world (I had a Sydney) and had very unusual combinations of toppings. Whilst it was a very nice meal, I felt that they were really a bit too generous with their toppings and that they should have kept it a bit simpler because it became a bit overpowering. I would go back, if only to try some of some of the other combinations (I want to try the one with black pudding on it), but I wouldn’t rave about it like some people do. We did get two pizzas for £10 though (there’s a link on the website and you have to book in advance to get that deal) so it was a real bargain though. It was a nice meal, just a bit too overpowering in terms of flavour combinations.

This weekend I have to amuse myself because G is away helping some friends to move house. So I am going to do all those things that I can’t always do when G is about, which includes browsing around the Oxford Street area tomorrow and trying to sort some stuff out more generally. Of course this mightchnage as G is going to the Kent coast and might get washed back into London on a tidal wave.

C applied for a new job yesterday and because I am her line manager I had to write nice things about her on the form. Not that it’s difficult to write nice things about her, it is just not very nice to be saying things that might mean she leaves, as that would be a shame. Such is life though.

Anyway, have a good weekend. I might be about here at some point over the weekend but we shall see.

TF - six months. A milestone...

I think 60% is entirely reasonable and you'll not get a better offer. I shall await your decision.

blue soup - yes it's a nice restaurant and very busy. It seems ridiculous that my problem with it was that they were too generous! I'm sure I'll go back though.

I hope the Fire Man stuff gets resolved soon...
