Here are five excuses why I haven’t blogged more often this week. It’s okay, they’re good ones.
1. MONDAY: Ate free ice cream for lunch
Sian, editor extraordinaire of Domestic Sluttery, and I went to Covent Garden to be the first to sample the ice creams at super-sexy venue The Icecreamists. It was quite an experience. You can read the fabulous review here.
2. TUESDAY: Drank too much Gin & Elderflower
You may be finding out more about this soon, but basically it’s bloody good fun.
3. WEDNESDAY: Been to Birmingham for a Tasting with work
I spent Wednesday and Thursday in the ham of Birming drinking wine, eating Thai food and having my name publicly forgotten by my boss in front of a room of eighty people (haha, it’s okay Ewan, I forgive you!). The event was a wine tasting quiz and it was rather amusing to see the members getting all competitive and gun ho. All in all it was super fun.
4. THURSDAY: Was Liberated From My Desk For An Afternoon
“Technical difficulties” ensued once I’d returned from the Tasting, meaning I could not do my usual job for about three hours yesterday afternoon. This meant I did lots of odd-jobs, some of which allowed me to go OUTSIDE. Okay, this one doesn’t sound cool at all but believe me it SO WAS. It was actually SUNNY. I was running around outside with boxes and NO COAT ON.
5. FRIDAY: Spoke to one of my idols on the phone
I can’t say who it was, but I can say they are a LEGEND that I’ve grown up with, and it was quite a fabulous moment. They were super-lovely, too.
Pretty good week, actually.
