A lovely weekend had! Friday night consisted of a gorgeous meal with some friends at my favourite Mexican restaurant followed by a few drinks. Bit of ‘work’ Saturday, i use the term very loosely as i love it and it does not feel like work lol. Off to the hairdressers to get my barnet done, roots and a trim. I have that much hair it doesnt look like its been cut but it has. I got it straightened too for a change, see pic (do not fear my curly hair lovers, the curls will return Monday!).
Saturday night i went to my friends for a Strictly Come Dancing Final party. We all adore the show. Nibbles, pizza and alcohol were on the menu. The show was amazing! I loved all the finalists…Frankie, Caroline, Mark and Simon but after seeing Carolines showdance i wanted her to win. It was so beautiful, contemporary and emotional.
I love the fact that Mark and Simon have been so touched my dancing, Mark was a total novice in the beginning by by the end of the 12 weeks he has improved so much and fallen in love with dance. I love the fact that doing the show has given Simon confidence, in the beginning he was very unsure of himself and said he felt lost the past few years of his life and had suffered depression. The show has done wonders for him, and its so brilliant to see. I adore his dance partner Kristina, shes so passionate about the show and teaching her celebrity to dance, and when she cries (which she has a few times!) its really endearing and shows how much it means to her!. Which makes me want her to do well.
Frankie has been brilliant all the way through, shes so beautiful, i love her hair!. When she did the Tango to Defying Gravity from Wicked (one of my favourite musicals) it was wonderful!. I enjoyed all her dances.
Caroline was an incredibly worthy winner, she got top marks for all her 3 dances, a Strictly record! The talent this year has been off the scale, quite possibly the best group of dancers yet!. Saturday nights will not be the same!. I wish i could dance, i have 2 left feet. One of my clients did insist on a bit of a waltz around my room the other day to prove a point during our Strictly discussion (his poor feet!) lol. Would you believe at my age left and right are still a problem :p
Nice day Sunday, bit of a lie in, bit of ‘work’ then to meet my friend for a drink (non alcoholic!). Back to hers to watch Sister Act (an oldy but a goodie). I love all the singing.
I will be working till about 5pm Christmas eve, then off the 25th/26th27th December. If you fancy a sensual, sexy and passionate GFE then give me a call!
Kisses and hugs,
A fab long weekend in London had this weekend! A treat really as i havn’t had a holiday for quite a few years. We got the train from Brighouse direct to Kings Cross, its so convienient and reasonably priced if you book in advance. It was nice and quiet, well to start with anyway, until we got to Doncaster. Then when the ticket man came round 3 ladies realised they weren’t on the train to Meadowhall as they thought! There were no more stops before London, so there was nothing they could do! They did laugh, and so did we. They said they thought it was a ‘posh’ train for Meadowhall!.
Arrived in London and headed to the hotel to leave our bags. The room was ready so they let us in early. We stayed at the Radisson Blu in Covent Garden. It was a 3 minute walk from the tube so very convienient. I’m not use to ‘posh’ so we thought all the little touches were fabulous! The white robes, toiletries, the softest bed ever, plush cushions! Oh yes i could get use to this! The staff were so friendly. Reception smelled divine, i’m not sure what it was.
We trotted off back to the tube as we had a booking to go up the Shard. The views were brilliant! It is 309 metres high (1016 feet) with 11,000 glass panels!. They had these telescopes with interactive touchscreens, it had everything marked so you knew exactly what you were looking at. Champagne was on offer for £12 a glass i think, i declined though as i dont like it, i’d rather have a Coke! Classy i know!. You go to floor 68 for the viewing platform, then up to floor 72 to go outside. A bit chilly but worth it! What an experience!
Back to the ground floor and we went and had a leisurely meal at Planet Hollywood, where we had arranged to meet some friends. A bit of shopping, back to the hotel to freshen up, then off to the Queens theatre for Le Miserables! I have wanted to see the show for so long, i was beyond giddy and excited! We had awesome seats in the stalls! The show did not disappoint and was every bit as brilliant as i knew it would be! The cast were just wonderful! and when Fantine sang I dreamed a dream…….my goodness! Out came the goose bumps! I spilt my drink over myself i got so carried away clapping! The most wonderful night out i have had in a very long time!
Saturday started off with a full English (well i was on holiday!) rude not too i say!. We met up with some family, as i am originally from Kent. We went to Green Park,had a stroll through the park. The weather was gorgeous, blue skies, dry, yes it was nippy but i was just glad it wasnt raining! We reached Hyde Park and went to Winter Wonderland. Its free to enter. Hundreds of Christmas stalls, German food stalls, ice skating and a fair etc. It was absolutely packed, but there was a lovely atmosphere. A great day had. Sunday was at a slower pace. I slept like a new baby in my lovely soft bed 🙂 Did i mention the power shower….fab! A browse around Covent Garden, then headed back for the train. Once back in Huddersfield we went to my favourite restaurant for a curry too finish off the weekend.
An exhausting but thoroughly enjoyable weekend, the best i have had in a long time! If your thinking about seeing Le Mis, i highly recommend it!
Back to work now, which i have missed, although a much needed break had!. Slept very well last night and feeling refreshed!
