Monday again… it was a fairly busy weekend. I met up with G on Saturday and we had lunch at the Cafe in the Crypt at St Martin’s in the Field. G is not very well at the moment and so was craving warm food, so I figured that was a good place to get some decent food and then just sit for a while and chat. Then we went towards Piccadilly and had a cup of coffee and ate cake (it was a very strenuous day). We did look for some new work shirts for me but I couldn’t find anything suitable, so we gave up on that. G then went home to carry on being ill and I went back to my place.
On Sunday my sister and I took our parents out for dinner at Gordon Ramsay’s Boxwood Café, which was very pleasant, although, unsurprisingly, not the place to go if you are on a tight budget.
When I got home I had done less than 1000 steps all day and so went for a walk in the sunshine. I found that a few minutes walk from where I live I have a really great view across London, which I was really surprised about and will have to go back and have another look sometime soon.
Then yesterday evening I phoned a friend but then realised that she is a big fan of Poirot and there was a new episode on last night so I cut the conversation short so she could watch it. Then I phoned a friend from school and chatted to her husband for a few minutes, as they had just got back from hospital because their son had been really ill with suspected meningitis. They still don’t know what’s wrong with him and are holding a bed for him at the hospital but let him go home as there was no advantage in keeping him in.
I saw the new Cadbury advert on TV last night, but actually saw it first over at the Vicious Chicken’s blog. Anyway go here and watch it. Another marvel from the people who make the best chocolate in the world*.
Update: I did correct the typo that seemed to suggest I wear shorts to work... The world could not cope with such a thing, particularly on a slightly chilly September morning.
* yea, yea I know all the stuff about Belgian chocolate having so much more cocoa in it etc but I’d still choose Cadbury’s over any other chocolate and to be honest I have a gorilla on my side, so it you want to argue about it, I am going to win.
