Firstly I think its important for me to say how good last night was and also apologies for the lack of quality in the photos taken, I did my best with an iPhone but the low light and quantity of beer consumed meant that the photos weren’t my main focus. the night was more about good conversation and just enjoying good company. the all started with a plan to go out and get some food last night with amy but after a call from Anders he was quickly coming along and the next mission was to find somewhere to eat. then it happened, we ended up at a restaurant Ive wanted to go back to for ages. Andina, this place in Shoreditch which serves Peruvian ceviche.
Its that kind of place where you go in and just order random things that you have no idea about, all the dishes are pretty small but pack a punch when it comes to flavour, I think we had some sort of beetroot salad with cous cous (maybe) and also some sort of boiled ham in a broth, but by far the winning dish was aubergine and bbq spicy beef with feta cheese thing. theres something fun about sitting down with friends and sharing loads of dishes and not just having your own plate, it makes eating out so much more fun and you find that you eat so many new favours. I really think sharing food is the way forward, especially on nights out.
After the food we went on to Shoreditch House for some ping pong and to carry on with the night, it was my first time at this place and as Anders has now become a member I think I will be attending a lot more. its basically this place for “creative” people to network which in London basically drink alcohol. we just went along for a kind of chilled night out and to be honest I definitely think its somewhere I can see us spending a lot more time and probably a lot more money.
Its now Saturday and sorry this post is late but we are up early having a power day, its time to move all of Micheles (My super aunties) stuff out of the flat and get it back to her. Something that is long over due, and now means we can go out and get a wardrobe for the millions of clothes at Amy owns!
Hope everyone is having a good weekend! I LOVE SATURDAYS!
I think everyone in the country likes the fact that it was Friday yesterday, probably the only think better about Friday is the fact that tomorrow is Sunday and that means good food and time to chill. Before we start thinking about Sunday we need to appreciate a good Friday, yesterday for the first time since 2017 I had that Friday feeling, you know that feeling that when it starts to get to 3/4ish your plans for the next few days start coming to mind and it all gets exciting.
One reason for me starting to get that Friday feeling was because I was going to see that new movie. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and do you know what it definitely lived up to what everyone has been saying about it, I literally cant recommend it enough. I really wish that I listened more in my media classes at school so I could now go on to write something really interesting about the characters and script, but unfortunately I was probably smoking round the back of the bike shed or causing some sort of mayhem during that lesson. So Ive done what every kid does when they need to give some answer but not really sure what the answer is, Ive gone to google and copied some reviews from there. Here are two reviews that I think really say what I want to say about the film.
“Funny, brutal and breathtakingly beautiful. Two exceptionally raw lead performances, supercharged by a bold script from Martin McDonagh, could make Three Billboards this year’s Awards-upsetter. ” Terry White, Empire – Full review here *** SPOILER ALERT *
“As we watch this wonderful movie we’re able to see who Mildred and all the others really are, and, better still, who they may become.” Joe Morganstern – Wall Street Journal Full review here – SPOILER ALERT – https://www.wsj.com/articles/three-billboards-outside-ebbing-missouri-review-signs-of-life-too-vivid-to-miss-1510253127
I really hope a lot of you get to the cinema and see this film, it has to be one of my favourite films in a while. Today is a good day, Ive got fair amount of things I want to get done as well as tackling the growing pile of washing that has been building up in my wash bin. but first a coffee and maybe a little Saturday morning chill.
