Well, it’s been an interesting week, all in all, and it has to be said that I’m looking forward to the weekend with relish. Although it’s not like I won’t be going into the office, because the office is now at home. Still, it will feel like the weekend, even if there won’t be a change of scenery.
I had a lovely, relaxed evening last night in the company of NML, who’s even nicer in person the she appears to be on her fantastic blog. We went to my favourite Thai restaurant in Soho right next door to Ronnie Scott's (they actually know me when I walk in – I love that) where she endeavoured to eat despite being in a state of shock through thinking I was going to be wearing a white suit. A white suit? Come on, NML, I drive an Alfa! Anyway, the food was beautiful, and all the waitresses are from the Far East... they're very attentive, smile at you adoringly and proceed to misinterpret almost eveything you ask for. I love it there in the summer, when they throw open the upstairs windows onto the hustle and bustle of Soho below, with street entertainers, Hari Krishnas and wonderful jazz bands providing the entertainment in this melting pot of a city.
Speaking of “that car”, it went in for its annual service last week, which on its own amounted to £330. I also have to find another £600 for the other stuff that needs doing to it, including a second set of new tyres (I bought a set last year too, and the cars only 2 years old!). Good looks are so often part of a high-maintenance package, aren’t they?? I think I may have to revert to my biking days at this rate… I don’t know what clients would think if I turned up to meetings in full leathers, but the idea has its attractions…
C and I are officially over, before we really started. It’s a shame, but I can do without any kind of ambiguity in my life at the moment, as I really need to focus on work. I’m already a little behind on one project for M due to chasing down the opportunity I’ve referred to elsewhere on here (and a load of other work-related stuff that occupied my time) so my first priority is to get that job done. Next week I have my final interview/meeting with The Potential Client, by the way, and apparently I’m doing okay so far. Keep you fingers crossed for me.
And have a lovely weekend.
