"...and...mmm,... a mushroom omelet, thank you :)"... Tiny place in a tiny street, in the old part of the city centre and almost impossible to see it's a lunch room from the outside... however very popular! It did not take long to figure out why, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the food is good and the atmosphere relaxed. What more do you want? Oh, and there's a tin box with cookies on the table... for the coffee ;)
No, I'm not going to say that that place was better than shoes, my standards are very high when it comes to this... No, it's a lazy weekend that IS better than shoes! You know, those weekends that you basically do nothing but you manage to have a memorable time with your closest friends, those weekends that leave you with a smile on your face...
This kind of a weekend was last weekend for me. Saturday brunch with my better half and his closest friends, friends that have become my friends too, having mushroom omelet, then go to the hairdresser's for an extreme look (it was extreme, I swear, I had a million hair pins on my head, little loops of hair and pointy parts that looked like a fountain... overall it was great!!... though indeed, it sounds that someone took the piss on me...) then shopping, some chores and then home to watch a movie, cuddled on the sofa... And in the evening, the Christmas party at work, the usual suspects there but not bad as such... my shoes got great compliments anyway, patent leather Dolce & Gabbana with a kitten heel... so cute!!
Then Sunday, laziest than Saturday, having a late brunch at home, then another film, a nap and then cooking for more friends, welcomed for a cosy evening at home... A few things can be better than that, the relaxed conversation with like minded people accompanied by a glass of wine and a home cooked meal! And, yes, all this left me with a big smile on my face!
Surely the smile only lasted 'till Monday morning, then reality stroke and I found myself driving to work singing the well known hymn by Sir Bob Geldof and trying not to hit the stupid cow that decided to change lanes on the motorway without any indication whatsoever!! While I was almost next to her!! In the lane she wanted to go!! But, since I promised I would write about positive experiences here, I will leave the details of that out of this post...
Ps. may you all have a great weekend soon :)
