From catching up with friends, to getting out the Christmas jumpers for work; it’s been a fun week.
I shared this post earlier in the week about ice skating in Sunderland. It’s open until Christmas Eve, so I’d definitely recommend getting along if you’ve got time, plus they’ve got a crepe stall right beside the rink!
This week, as a strong independent woman I went to the cinema alone. It’s the first time I’ve done that, but I have an unlimited card and they were holding a secret screening so I couldn’t have really gone with anyone anyway! I thought there’d surely be other people going alone too, in a similar situation to me. Funnily enough I ended up sat next to the lad who I’d parked beside – what’s the chances?! It didn’t end up being Star Wars, like I had hoped, but In The Heart of The Sea instead. I wouldn’t have probably gone to see it otherwise but it was alright, with a lot of familiar faces. I summed it up on twitter as Mad Eye Moody (married to Catelyn Stark) telling Q about Thor and others fighting a whale.
This weekend’s been pretty chilled out, Christmas Jumper Day, buffet and Secret Santa at work then date night on Friday, followed by a surprise with my sister on Saturday – we went to a local garden centre that has reindeer you can feed. Very cute and a lovely surprise! Today I’ve been to Bowes Museum for their Christmas Market – oddly without any mulled wine, which was a shame, but more reindeer there too – Fat Hippo’s burger van was there and I got to taste their festive special. Hopefully I’ll be able to fit in a trip to their restaurant for another before they stop serving it; cranberry sauce, camembert, confit turkey and walnut stuffing and bacon – incredible!
What’ve you been up to this week?
