Another busy few days with not enough time to blog so here’s a quick catch up.
I spent yesterday in the office near Borough Market and decided to sit and enjoy a Monmouth coffee before getting started with the working day. I was in the City by 7:30am so I had plenty of time.
When I was chatting to my lovely nephew at the weekend, he was telling me about the Shakespeare plays his Grandma takes him to and how he prefers the comedies to the tragedies. I was astonished a 12 year old enjoyed Shakespeare and realised I hadn’t seen a quality play for a long time. So at lunch time I braved the bitterly cold weather and strolled along beside the Thames. My goodness it was cold!
Destination was the Globe which is only a few buildings from my office. Lara and Harvey are coming up to London so I decided to get some tickets for something. Unfortunately they don’t open until the 23rd April. I think Lara considers she had a lucky escape 🙂
Undeterred I kept going to The National but unfortunately there was nothing appropriate on. I am quite intrigued by this red structure though – The Shed which is a temporary structure for performances so I will book something up to watch inside.
In the evening I was taken out for drinks by the team I have enjoyed working with so much during the last 2 months. I chose to go to the bar at the Citizen M hotel on Bankside. It has a huge bar area with lots of relaxing spaces to sit. We sat here and had a wonderful evening with lots of laughing. I will miss that team and all the banter.
The rest of the day was a disaster in terms of eating which I am going to move swiftly on from. I had a very light supper of a green smoothie made with spinach, a pear, kiwi fruit, natural yogurt and sour cherry juice.
