Tuesday night: Dinner at awesome Italian joint on Old Compton Street in Soho called Amalfi. Met up with long-lost friends, drank excellent wine and even fit dessert without having to roll out the door.
Wednesday night: D, man of connections, scored free tickets to see a preview of Jersey Boys in the West End. Story about Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Good for a few laughs. The Spice of Life pub and a glass of wine to follow.
Thursday night: Bookshops, CD shops, an excellent spinach and cheese crepe and good conversation with S. Following the shops, a Spanish pub and a pub decorated with large gothic chairs and old chemistry sets. Special mention to Tea Pigs, where they have mesh teabags to accomodate the large bits of leaves and flowers that diffuse their flavours into the tea. Had peppermint, intend to return to try chocolate and stearing clear of the popcorn flavour.
Friday night: Relaxation and freelance catch up.
Saturday: Banksy tour around East London. Pictures later, perhaps.
On a side note: Love my job now. Working with distance learners all around the world, I have met some absolutely amazing and inspiring people from all cultures.
