Weekend 048

Well this weekend has been probably one of, if not the best weekend of 2011 (so far, there's still a few to go)!

My weekend started a little earlier this week so here goes...

Thursday: A half day in work and then a quick train journey (or not so quick) down to the big smoke is how I started my weekend this week! My friend from Oz is leaving on Monday (toady)-so we all headed down to London for one last weekend together (well, until the next time she's home)! We started off by heading to the Piccadilly Theatre to watch Ghost which was just incredible! I would highly recommend! I watched the film for the first time last week and wasn't that blown away, but the musical really blew me away and left me a teary mess by the end! We were very lucky, as my friend lives with the 'subway ghost' from the production, we managed to get amazing seats at a fraction of the price-really was a treat! We headed on home after a quick one in the pub with the cast and ended up staying awake for hours just talking and giggling like a true girly sleepover!

Friday: As one of the girls headed off for a day of work, the other 3 of us decided to head on out for a spot of brekkie then for a quiet morning/early afternoon at the cinema to watch 'My Week with Marilyn' which was absolutely brilliant! Michelle Williams did a fantastic portrayal of the beauty that was Marilyn Monroe! We then headed off for a tour of Westminster - I have done this on a number of occasions as my friend used to work there, but we did it once again and it really is such an amazing building - it's so fascinating listening to all the stories and history of the building! We then ended the evening in a bar/club 'Guanabara' which was ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! It was a night full of eating/drinking and salsa dancing! Back home for another late night of chatting/giggling -I think it's a given when girls get together for a sleepover that it's going to end in giggles :)!

Saturday: Another early start, but this time it was to head on off to The Diner in Soho for a big hearty brekkie before we hit Oxford Street! I have no idea what was going through our minds when we decided that it would be a good idea to do Oxford Street on a Saturday, but it's safe to say that we didn't get much done - far too busy for my liking!

We started off in Selfridges to catch my friend kick off the christmas season with some amazing songs with her group 'Elle and the Pocketbelle's' - they will be in Selfridges every Saturday during the Christmas season singing on the 2nd floor and I would highly recommend giving them a listen if you're in store!

Then it was time to say goodbye and head on home - it was a teary goodbye at the station with my friend who's heading back to Oz as we don't know when we'll next see her, but we really did have a fab weekend together!

Sunday: Compared to the past few days - today was pretty blah - I have done nothing except lounge around! We headed on down to my parents house for some take-away as they are heading off to New York next Friday (not jealous at all) and then back home for a very early night!

Hope you've all had a fab weekend too! Only 3 more weeks left in work before I break up for the Christmas break - fingers crossed they go very very quickly!
