Although we don’t live together at the moment I spend most of my time at my boyfriends house or him at mine. We used to be house mates with two other friends but in December we both moved back to our parent’s houses, the biggest reason being that we wanted to start saving up so that we could buy a place together and that is near impossible with the price of rent! Because we are both saving as much as we can we don’t always get the opportunity for a night out, just the two of us. We always seem to have something on, even if it’s just going down to the pub at the weekend, but that’s not the same. This month we have got a lot going on, most importantly Glastonbury (not long now!!) but we also both had our MOTs (booo!). Somehow, however, both our cars managed to pass their MOTs with very little work needed so we decided we are allowed a treat. So we when out for a meal and then headed to the cinema to see X-Men. We headed to Ashford Eureka Park because that is the best place to go locally for a meal and a film, and there are just enough restaurants there so that we don’t just end up going to McDonald’s every time. This time we went to Chiquito, the Mexican restaurant, I’ve been there before a few times and I really like it in there, although it is a bit over priced for what it is.
Our waitress (I think her name was Chloe?) was brilliant and noticed when the kitchen forgot to give Adam his extra bit of chicken and she sorted it out straight away. The food was yummy too, and in hindsight we definitely did not need that many nachos for a starter, even though they were really tasty. One thing I love about Chiquito is that when you are looking at the menu they always bring over a small snack, just to keep you going, and the popcorn we had was perfect for this. I had the chicken and pulled pork tex mex dish and Adam had the same but as a burger, how adventurous are we?!
After completely stuffing our faces we still had a while to go until the film started so we went for a walk.
There isn’t really anywhere to walk near the cinema so we went and stood on the bridge oven the motorway. Not the most glamorous of walks but it was interesting to watch the traffic.
We headed back to the cinema and sat in the best seats and watches the film. If you get a chance to go and see xmen I really recommend it.
Now I’m off to Glastonbury now so I’ll let you know what I get up to this year!
