Wednesday

Out to Excilduil for French lesson, twas OK, home to pack et al – out to foodie school for din dins, twas OK

Thursday

Drive to Bordeaux – twas ok, praise be for cruise control

Got out of car and this was my time to sigh and relax, however, iphone decided to die on its way through the xray machine, not very relaxing really – and as it wouldn’t start i did wonder if I had picked up the wrong one…..

Got to Gatwick, and of course train didn’t go straight to London, but it actually took us longer to get to Stratford from Gatwick than it did to fly to London from France – mad

Anyway, 3 rooms changes later, we were in our hotel room

Out to dinner to Pho in Westfield centre and food was yummy

Apple tried to help me with the phone, but wasn’t looking good

Friday – birthday

Breakfast in Westfield, haircut, bit of shopping, into apple again, and was given a  new phone as it couldn’t be fixed. lunch, off to Victoria to meet Jane

Westfield, more shopping, hotel and out again – to Jamies for birthday din dins

Saturday

After a late-ish night of wine drinking in the hotel bar, the morning was a bit of a struggle – hey ho – with visits to the apple store, much time was spent in the Westfeld shopping centre. Back to hotel, then out again…. this time to Wahaca –  i do like that place

(this was the text sent…….) Happy Saturday! Am planning a meal/ birthday meet-up – Saturday 10th January, Wahaca (Mexican) Westfield Centre, Stratford – 3pm for late-ish lunch-ish! Let me know if you can come along – will try and book table if that’s poss there 🙂 – Twould be great to see you 🙂

IMG_1353 IMG_1356 IMG_1358 IMG_1359 IMG_1360 IMG_1361

It was great to see people and catch up –  it all felt very fresh and new

Dinner later at Pho, then the room for a nightcap

Sunday

Up, out and off to Gatwick, in a cab as there was a replacement bus service to be enjoyed and it all sounded a bit stressful

Gatwick, lunch, plane, flight was quick, sky/ world looked lovely
