Musicals and Multimedia Tables

This week was draining. I'm still finding it hard in the new job. Discounting before Christmas (because it doesn't really count) this is only really my second week and I'm still trying to find my place in the team and make the role my own. My previous job was only 6 months but where it was so similar to what I had done for 6 years before it was easy to take the bull by the horns, the atmosphere (I sat in the sales office) was different too and there was a lot more banter. I'm loving having a new challenge and gaining new skills it's just taking time to adjust and I'm rather impatient sometimes to be the best at my job already.

What that got to do with musicals and multimedia tables you ask? Well this weekend I was on a cheer up mission.

Friday night:

One of my friends went to see Wicked with her fiance between Christmas and New year and they both loved it. I've wanted to see it for years (ahem glee this is partly your fault) and figured I would pop along and see about last minute tickets. I am so glad I did it was a great production. The whole theatre is done up, the voices incredible and the touches of humour were great. I loved the story and would even go so far as to say I prefer it to the Wiz of Oz!

Saturday night:

I got invited a long to a friends birthday dinner at Inamo in Soho (just around the corner from my office!). The food is insanely good. I recommend sharing a few starters and mains so that you can try more things. The pudding I would skip next time.  Here's the gimmick though - you can play with the table. It's a computer projected onto the table so you order everything on the table, you can check your bill and see pictures of the options before you order. You can choose how your table looks, play games (we played battleships) and watch whats happening in the kitchen. It can be a bit counter to conversation, something which many struggle with anyway they are so attached to their phones, but as I didn't know many people it acted as a good ice breaker.


Today I saw Les Mis. (sorry Ro I will go with you too) I got last minute free tickets through my housemates friend. It was spectacular. Some of it was filmed in my hometown (Portsmouth) at the old dockyard! The cast were as incredible as everyone is saying. I am so glad Eddie Redmayne was a good singer, my housemates now also have crushes on him (he is so beautiful) and although Russel Crowe isn't perfect, his acting was great and his voice wasn't as bad as reviews suggested.  Guardian review that I liked Yes I cried in the cinema.

Cross stitch necklace

Today was my first day back at work in 2014 (I took the rest off - it was lovely). I thought I'd make a bit of an effort and put on boots, tights and a skirt as well as the above.

The necklace was a christmas present from Ve, she made it! Isn't it amazing! You can get the necklace hoops online or from some craft shops she said.

Why a bike you ask? Well partly because of the time I fell into a parked car attempting to cycle and also because she maintains all I need to be 100% hipster is a fixed wheel bike! The cheek of it...

The first Monday of the year is apparently the most depressing of the year which is a sad way to start isn't it! My day was pretty good although I managed to rip my skirt (nooooo!).

P.S. I died my hair last week, it's a bit darker than usual - thoughts?

Moving playlist

Moving is all done!

The whole process was a pain, the person who was going to take my room pulled out so I ended up re-advertising which took a while ...  It was nice to have more time with the short commute but for a few weeks there I felt like I was stuck waiting for things to happen, then luckily we found someone nice and then there was the whole moving whirlwind.

I've still got some unpacking to do but I'm pretty much done and all my stuff is here now. It's weird living beck home but much easier than staying over Christmas etc. because all my things are here (I do like my things).

At some point I'll set my Etsy shop back up but probably not until after I've gotten used to my commute!

Richard II, blankets & Kingston

This weekend I've mainly been working on the big purple blanket; it's a monster and I think it'll take me most of the year but it's going to be beautiful... 

Besides that my parents came up Saturday with my brother for us to go see Richard II with David Tennant in! It's a great production ... if you can get tickets. My brother said they had cut bits of it out but it still works and Tennant is great as the vain mislead king and the set is amazing! 

Today I went to Local Hero in Kingston with Roisin for a natter and a rather lovely sausage sandwich. Kingston was pretty much sponsored by Cath Kidstone over Christmas - lot's of pretty polka dots!
