Date Night

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.

Chiquito Food

Chiquito Food

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!


Bad Blogger! (and nights out)

I’ve been naughty and I’ve forgotten to blog!

To be fair I am a busy bee, I work week days and I party at weekends 😀

I’ve had some fab nights out recently and all local ones too. A cheeky Wednesday night in Spoons and I wasn’t even drinking, but that’s the problem with having friends who are at uni, they can go out on school nights. Although saying that, me a couple of friends did have Wine Wednesday a few weeks ago and I can promise I will not be doing that again any time soon, I’m getting too old for it 😉

Me and my lovely friends Ruth and Katie had a fab night out going to a few bars then heading down the local nightclub last weekend. We all went a bit crazy but danced our socks off and made that most of a great night. The end of the night was an interesting one, Katie got a lift home with her brother because she lives miles away and me and Ruth decided to head to be kebab shop and then get a taxi. The only problem being that we both had no money.

In our merry state we decided to walk into the  town centre (about 10 mins) and get some cash out, but it was pouring with rain. Obviously that didn’t stop us! With amazing luck we discovered two £10 notes on the ground half way into our walk to town but determined to get kebab we decided to keep walking.

The men in the kebab shop were rather shocked to have to drenched ladies girls stumble in but we still ordered our cheesy chips and chicken burger (each) called a taxi and went on our merry way.

It is safe to say I didn’t feel fabulous the next day!
