This month was also full of tasty cocktails – who doesn’t love a gin or cocktail 🍸🍹. I’ve even got the hubby into rhubarb gin as long as its with ginger ale – basically so it doesn’t taste like gin…
Looking back over the above all I seem to do each month outside work is have some tasty drinks as well as tasty meals out but hey! you only live once!
One thing that did suck this month was getting a not very nice cold 😓. I was a bit of a wuss so stayed away from the gym for a couple weeks… Feeling much better now so I have no excuse for November! Let’s reassess in a months time how this past month at the gym has gone… I’m hoping well 😜
Ted Baker had a sample sale in Birmingham which I popped along to. I’ve never really had Ted Baker before but got a couple bits as the price was so good! I got 2 dresses for £20 each (same dress in black and blue) a black lace top for £15 and a jacket for £25. All fits nicely so was a good gamble for the value! Can’t complain!
I managed to get 5 days in Italy with my mum, nanny and great aunt. The weather was so nice! It was in the low 20s every day so it was a bit of a shock to the system when I came back home and it was raining and having to defrost the cars in the morning! See here for my blogpost on my trip to Lake Garda and Venice.
Italy is one of my favourite places so I love going back but it was nice coming home to have a few days of pure chilling! After getting back on the Thursday, I literally spent the Friday on the sofa chilling watching TV – definitely needed after a busy 3 months. Saturday eve was spent seeing Enrique Inglesias at the Genting Arena – we’d forgotten how many of his songs we actually knew! After a late night, Sunday was our final chill day before getting back to work on Monday.
We popped out to Raja Monkey Sunday night which is run by the same people as Lasan in Birmingham and it didn’t disappoint. Its been suggested to us a few times by friends and we’ll definitely be going back. (The decor was also cute!) We both shared some Samosa Chaat and Pau Bhaji which was the best part of the meal. We then both had the Nawabi Kebab Thali. YUM!!!
So here I am on 31 October with the Pumpkins carved and the sweets ready but no trick or treaters 😓 Oh well!
I am not enjoying this absolutely freezing weather at the mo… I don’t mind being home wrapped up in a blanket with hot chocolate but having to be outside when its freezing and its raining is not any fun! We’re off to the fireworks on Thursday so I will be wrapping up nice and warm!
Anyone else seeing any fireworks this next week?
We’re going to the Vale Fireworks – always nice to pop back to the UoB Vale to see what it looks like since we left Birmingham Uni in 2011. Brings back lots of memories!
Until next time…
