A quiet weekend was on the cards again, it started off so well, a quiet night in front of the TV (crashed out at 6:30 and woke up at 9:30 the next morning) me thinks I must’ve needed it.
On Saturday I went to Newtown with one of the lovely girlies, I’ve never been there before on a Saturday – it was so much fun! I heart it there. Very bohemian feel somewhat reminiscent of Camden Town in London, lots of the ‘cool folk’ that I try to be but fail miserably. The boutique clothing stores line the streets with affordable one off vintage items – I got an amazing dress and hair piece – only cost me $50 for both – amaze! My mate picked up an amazing dress for $25, and looked hot to trot to boot.
We had lunch at the most amazing cafe, I must find the name for you guys, the food was scrumptious! We shared a carrot and chick-pea burger and tomato, mozzarella and basil salad.mmmm
After a day of shopping and chilling I headed home, had a bit night ahead and was ready to party following my snooooozathon the night before, loser!!
I dressed up in my new hot frock and donned my new hair piece, I also decided to opt for the curly mane as opposed to polka straight – like to mix things up every now and again… you know!!
So off I headed to Casa Di Nico on Darling Harbour, now I’m usually a fan of the smaller Italian restaurants that are off the beaten track. You know the hidden treasures that are always packed out, tiny but with bucket loads of atmosphere. Casa Di Nico is definitely not that, however it was pleasant enough – the company was fantastic so that is all that counts. I had the vegetarian lasagne for my main which was very lovely, not too filling but just enough. I also ploughed trough about 6 glasses of white wine, the law on a Saturday night right?!
After dinner we moved onto Bungalow 8, again not my favourite venues, it was so busy on Saturday – however the music was off the hook! Sally came to join us just after work to the tunes of ‘Walking on Broken Glass’ – a personal fave of ours that we have been caught rocking out to in Kit and Kaboodle on more than one occasion… good times my friend… good times!!
After Bungalow we decided to head to The Sheaf – now we’re talking copious amounts of wine later – less than ideal. I should’ve just given up then and gone home. But nooooooo I don’t stop until I have to… cue arriving in The Sheaf – not feeling (or looking I presume) the best I’ve ever looked – after a crossed wire with a friend I stomped off home… to PADDINGTON in MASSIVE heels – WTF was I thinking?! Think cooking up a storm as I arrive home (surely that’s not safe) and passing out on my bed fully clothed, with my shoes on. Stay classy… indeed!
Stay tuned for the update of the next day and another chance encounter to follow shortly…
