I haven’t written much lately for two reason;
A I’ve been too bloody busy
B Everytime I’ve had spare time wordpress has not worked properly, especially when it comes to images. Telling wordpress about it does not help either…stop sucking you’re supposed to be one of the best…
The last two weeks started with a lovely London evening spent with Marliina we ate at Giraffe on the South Bank and managed to get both half priced cocktails AND cheap food…yes we were a bit sly there and paid for the drinks seperately, but hey we need to save money for flights 😉 It was lovely to meet up again. As usual we mostly talked about how it is having a distance relationship, priorities, Sophie’s Choice and much more.
Then on Friday I met Karin for the first time at Nandos on Baker Street. It was like meeting an old friend, funny how it is with blogs you get to know people with out having met them before…although I know her brother well. Anyhow we had much in common, uni studies, past jobs, living in hostels etc, and time flew past.
Saturday I did a big mistake…I went to Portobello Road…GAH! Its mayhem in Notting Hill on Saturdays, tourists everywhere. I should have known better I bloody live in Notting Hill. Anyway managed to buy an engagement present and card for Jens and Stina so not a complete disaster.
Met up with Anna and Karin before we went to Jens and Stina’s engagement party at The harcourt for a great party, so many friends had turned up. The Harcourt will always be a special place, Stina met Jens there and I met my Sweetie there. I bumped into Sofia and probably made her think I’m a freak…lol…should not talk to strangers in the ladies loo, must learn appropriate places to say hello in…toilets not being one of them 🙂
Sunday I met Ingrid at the vegan cafe InSpiral Lounge in Camden. We only had tea and a smoothie and talked the time away, we are both going to India next year and we do quite a bit for charity. I could not stay long as I had too much to do but we decided to meet up again and visit a museum. As for the cafe I am sooo going to go back there again, although earlier on a week day so I can try their exciting food in peace.
Then finally Thursday last week Sweetie came to London, it was so lovely to see him again how I have been waiting. We made a pit stop at the Swedish Church to say hello to all their nice staff and catch up on some gossip, then of home. We relaxed a bit and then ate at Feng Sushi in Notting Hill, very cosy dining room and decent Sushi…not brilliant like Dinings sushi but then it is cheaper, a lot cheaper.
Friday I worked in the morning and then we met up in the Harcourt, to say hello to Martin, John and Dee. After that we were of to the Pipeline Bar to visit all of them there and eat some Swedish food, had some lovely chanterelle pasta only complaint it was a bit too salty. The evening we spent with Jenny eating at Wagamama and then all three of us met up with Jocke in the pub.
Saturday and Sunday just blurred past, went to the Harcourt at 1 to see Swedish Allsvensk football, we’ve been rubbish this season and are almost relegated. But what happens…well we actually win a game despite having two players sent off, unbelievably we have a chance. Then we won the ice hockey too, what is going on?!? Afterward me, Sweetie and a few other guys celebrated with mexican food and Margaritas at Mestizo we ate waaay too much as someone ordered too much food…we were full up already by the starter which we mistook for the main course until the main courses started arriving 😀 Sunday we had to go up early for a Sunday (thank you winter time for the extra hour of sleep 🙂 ) to get tickets for the NFL American football game…thanks bloody royal mail strikers for not delivering our post, get back to work you’re useless…
We finally got our reprinted tickets for Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs New England Patriots and checked out the tailgate party before the game, apart from the beer tailgate was shit. And by the way how the F&*K can you call it football??? You don’t touch the ball with your feet more than about 7-10 times per game…sounds like I don’t like the NFL but I do its just not FOOTball. The game was great, the patriots won, the atmosphere was fantastic with 84,000 spectators and lovely friends to watch the game with. Just a shame Buffy couldn’t make it, the biggest NFL fan in our group who bought our tickets and then couldn’t go due to a stupid exam…By the way we had fantastic seats thanks 😛
When we got home Sweetie started to pack, I felt a bit ill and feverish (no not oink, oink) we ate pizza and went to bed. At three in the morning Sweetie started his journey home 😦 and I am again alone. We had a lovely time but sadly it as too short, I miss you already.
Har haft mycket att göra de senaste veckorna, träffat många vänner, ätit god mat, varit på förlovingsfest osv.
Sötnos kom även till London från torsdag till måndag morgon, så underbart att ses igen. Vi träffade gamla vänner, åt mycket bland annat svensk, japansk och mexikansk mat, kollade på allsvensk fotboll, svensk ishockey med vinster i båda vilket firades med mexikansk mat och margaritas. På söndagen så blev det amerikansk NFL fotboll på Wembley stadium, rätt lag vann och allt var mycket trevligt, tycker dock inte de ska kalla det FOTboll när de max rör vid bollen med foten typ 7-10 ggr per match, byt namn.
Hatade att sötnos åkte hem, det är tomt utan dig 😦
