Today has whizzed by at great speed. I have been so busy all day and am now exhausted but LOVING tonight’s hotel. Where am I tonight?
Back in Glasgow this morning, I had a large breakfast as I was not sure when I would have a chance to eat next as I had a busy schedule ahead of me at work. I started with a bowl of fruit,
followed by one slice of toast, one egg, 2 slices of bacon, 1 slice of cheese, 1 slice of ham and half a portion of Bel Paesse cheese.
I started work earlier than I had planned – in the middle of breakfast as I had to take a phone call from someone. Such is life these days.
I then had to rush to check out of my room which had the most bizarre location. It was over the main train station. My room looked out over the concourse. And I know that because when the platform announcements started at some ungodly hour, I could hear them, despite my ear plugs!!!! This is the view from my window.
All morning I work, work, worked and then we had about 20 minutes free so I popped out to grab lunch at Philpott’s.
I liked the Glasgow architecture. There were lots of grand red buildings like this one and many of the streets are very hilly. And the taxi driver told us Halle Berry was there recently filming scenes supposedly shot in San Francisco. He also told us Brad Pitt was there recently too, with scenes supposedly shot in Philadelphia. I became suspicious then though because I am sure every taxi driver has recently seen Brad Pitt in their town. I think it’s a new urban myth as Brad doesn’t make that many films !
Lunch was hurriedly eaten at my desk.
I had Cajun chicken and salad on a brown crusty roll. With a very strong coffee as I was tired – thanks to the train announcer!
After a full day in the office we rushed off to the airport
and boarded our plane to……another City. With another hotel. I love this hotel. I seriously love this hotel and might stay here forever. Not really as I do miss my family but, have I told you, I love this hotel! Look what I am watching telly on.
When I am on holiday, I like hotels full of Olde Worlde charm with high ceilings, large rooms, comfortable bars and restaurants to while away the hours in and falling over themselves to be helpful staff. However, when I am in work mode, I want ultra modern and slick and efficient. And to be alone. Completely alone.
So I ordered room service. I didn’t get to my room until after 9pm and I had been on the go all day so I was knackered (still am by the way so hope you are appreciating this blog tonight 🙂 ).
I ordered a salad which had loads of green leaves, chicken, bacon, egg and blue cheese. No dressing, which is good for health but I would have enjoyed some. This was really good. Everything was fresh and full of flavour.
And, as a treat, apple crumble and custard. It was perfect. Loads of apple with some dried fruits too, not too sweet and a super crunchy topping. With real custard. Mmmmmmmmm. It was quite small so I don’t feel guilty. I thoroughly enjoyed it all. And I didn’t have to cook any of it or wash up. Or talk to anyone while I ate it. Just ate and watched Masterchef. Perfect.
So now I am in my pyjamas and about to hop in to bed with the remote. Watch a bit more garbage on TV, drink my camomile tea (provided by the perfect hotel) and go to sleep.
I hope the heavenly hotel provides a yummy Brummy breakfast.
