How quick I was to celebrate the brief heatwave London experienced recently 😛 It has taken virtually no time at all for the weather to be reduced to it’s usual cold, blustery, rainy gloom.
Still, I’m grateful for the opportunity to get some sun on my skin for any amount of time… however fleeting it may be. And if our forecasts are to be believed, more sun is on the way. Of course, I’ll believe it when I see it 😉
Here are some random snippets of what I’ve been up to lately 🙂
I took my wife Elle to The Odeon Lounge in Whiteleys again. This is a luxury high end cinema designed for small groups and a more cosy, intimate viewing experience.
One of my favourite things about The Lounge is their inventive cocktails released with each landmark blockbuster. As we were watching the newest Avengers film, the cocktails were superhero based 🙂
Elle went for a Green Monster, which tasted okay. I had a King of Wakanda, which was absolutely delicious! I could really taste the rosemary in the gin and Chambord it contained was a surprisingly excellent flavour companion.
As usual, the lounge outside the cinema screens were inviting and relaxing.
Me wearing 3D glasses. Fetching, no?
It was a fantastic experience that lived up to the usual high standards I’ve come to expect from The Lounge. If you’re curious about the film itself, you can read my spoiler-filled thoughts here. But be warned… I am not as enamoured with it as most people are 😛
Aside from that, I’ve been picking up the pace at the gym. When I started running again a month ago, I couldn’t do more than 3 minutes without stopping. Now I’m up to 7.5 minutes 🙂 My goal is to push that to 10.
This new gym is much busier than my old one, But fortunately it’s incredibly spacious and has tonnes of machines and workout areas. And if I go early enough in the morning, I may just have a whole area to myself!
I’m looking forward to this weekend as we’re meeting up with some dear friends, who are quite keen to see our baby Zack. Although ‘baby’ may no longer be the correct term. With each day, Zack is walking more and more. He still crawls, but he’s discovered that walking gets him to things he wants more quickly.
It’s official. Our baby has become a toddler! An all new chapter in parenthood begins 😅
Thanks for reading, folks. Have a good weekend!
