Schlepped down to London for the fet cocktail thingy. Sarah very up and chatty, Dawnie too, especially considering she's under the axe. And a lovely crowd. Talked to 2 interesting couples and a few singles. I am aware that I need to increase my social circle, and I'm doing it! Only stayed 3 hours, but thoroughly enjoyed myself. It's a funky venue and the cocktails were marvellous! Other peeps ordered food and were extremely complimentary about it as well, so a great afternoon spent with some fun people :)
Came home and get changed for my date. I had no idea where it was going to be, just that it was "somewhere nice". So I made the effort with heels, a darkest green velvet 1940s dress and the gorgeous green vintage jewels Min gifted me a while back. And I have to say, in spite of my crappy photos, the overall effect was exactly what I'd hoped for. He turns up, and off we go - to Auberge du Lac no less! So I was really glad I made the effort. Very expensive, he wanted the taster menu, but there was foie gras, yuk and blow torched eel, WTF! I had Weymouth Crab and Belly of Pork, absolutely delicious! Fabulous place, I would love to go for a country walk and have Sunday lunch there one day. Quite majestic.
Won't be seeing Paul again. Lovely man, chatty, good looking but with a completely different lifestyle to me. I am more bohemian in so many ways. Not just the fet. He's clearly used to high end everything and I just don't need that or want to live that way. No intention of getting on Real Housewives of Cheshire anytime soon. If I said to him I wanted to picnic naked by a river, or have him read out loud to me in bed or sound him, he'd probably pass out. But a lovely night out, so no harm done.
Back in July whilst we were still indulging, I brought this dress for the Mess do. It's on Ebay now, as boo is with somebody else at said do, but I tried it on tonight. Again, the photos don't do me justice, it looked amazeballs on. Glamorous and sexy, yet understated. But too big. I put a kilo on in Bangkok, but still losing.
Pretty tired, but gonna attempt to get up and go bike ride or something tomorrow. I also have it in my head to make a wonderful pie! This world needs peace. And pie!
