On Friday night, we had planned to go to the theatre to see ‘See how they run’ and have dinner afterwards. The night started with tube delays, then I got lost trying to find the theatre (a blonde moment - I’ve lived in London all my life..!). By the time I got there, I was refused tickets, because ours were reduced price tickets and the theatre had already sold them to other people (even though I got there before the show started). Since my family had travelled into central London especially, we were understandably pissed off.
Nonetheless, we went to Rong Cheng Chinese restaurant on Shaftesbury Avenue for dinner. We won’t be going there again in a hurry. Not only was the food more sub-standard than any I’ve had in London, but we found bits of wire from a scrubbing brush in the soup. To make it worse, on googling it just now, I found that they were fined £15,000 for mice droppings in the kitchen and bad hygiene. Yuk. They even had the cheek to try and make us pay for our meal, even though it went uneaten. Rong Cheng? Rong choice..
The rest of my weekend was good enough to make up for Friday night though:
- I went shopping on Saturday and bought myself some very pretty shoes in the sale, as well as a cute top and sexy jeans.
- Played pool – quite well I thought, but still lost 3 times.
- Stayed up all night talking and gossiping with Seema
- My joints felt well enough to play badminton for the first time in 2 months, even though I am aching today
- Made some yummy food
Me and Seema had the same dream on Saturday night – how freaky was that??! Last week she dropped her phone into a cup of tea and it hasn’t worked since. On Saturday night, we both dreamt that we were standing at the exact same spot in my room, trying to switch the phone on. Not only that, but we BOTH dreamt that it didn’t work the first time, but it did on the second try!
When we both realised this, we straight away went to switch the phone on, hoping that it would work on the second try, giggling like idiots. Did it work? Did it hell.. Still, it brings a whole new meaning to the phrase 'See you in my dreams'!
