Neverland and the Edinburgh Fringe

Today has been such a lazy Sunday after an even busier week! I had Thursday afternoon and Friday off so I rushed home, had the best spinach and haddock salad before rushing off to Glasgow, where I met up with my friend Lieke and my boyfriend. The weather was amazing so we sat outside at One Upwith a drink for an hour before Alan left us to have some much needed girl time. We wandered to Pesto, which is an Italian tapas restaurant. It is, hands down, one of my favourite places ever! We spent three hours there, we had so much catching up to do and the tapas was so, so yummy. Afterwards, we went to Lieke's place, got ready and ended up going out dancing till 3am - hello sore knees and feet, I'm getting too old for this!

On Friday, we had brunch in a new Mexican tapas place in Glasgow, where we also entered a competition for an all-inclusive holiday to Mexico - here's hoping! When I got home, Alan and I were both pretty tired so we had a TV free night with tapas (I'm totally obsessing over tapas at the moment, who doesn't love having a little bit of everything?) and a monopoly version called Falkirkopoly, which we found in Alan's parents' summer house the other week. I swear no one has played it since the 1970s haha - even the box is really sun bleached!


Our dinner consisted of peppered salmon, asparagus, lots of salad, mozzarella and sun roasted tomatoes, steak, chorizo fried in red wine (it was to die for) and calamari. It was such a cosy night! I also had a surprise for Alan, he had mentioned that he wanted a new jacket from UNIQLO for his birthday but his birthday isn't until October so I had bought it online last week and gave it to him on Friday - the best thing about having a full time job is definitely treating the people you love.

Last night we spontaneously decided to go to Edinburgh as I've never been to the Fringe before. We got the train from Stirling to Edinburgh and Edinburgh was SO busy! We really wanted to see a show called The Voyage of the Narwhal by The Awkward Silence, which was on at Just The Tonic at the Caves. The venue was very strange, and literally was like being inside an old Edinburgh cave/building, and the show was very different yet funny. Before we went to the show we had tickets to though, we had some time to kill so we went to a show called Generic Comedyat Capital Cowgate. I'm not normally this critical but it was extremely terrible. The female comedian talked about losing weight, having three cats and how disgusting men are, and the male comedian insulted one man in the audience so much that he left. All very unnecessary so we were a bit relieved to be leaving haha! After The Voyage of The Narwhal, we ended up going to a burlesque show in an old church - those ladies were seriously talented! After three shows, we were starving and really wanted to find somewhere to eat but it was like 11pm, so nowhere decent was open... It's the Fringe, and everywhere is buzzing - if I owned a restaurant, I would keep it open 24/7!

Tonight, we're going to the cinema to see the sequence to The Inbetweeners. I loved the first Inbetweeners film so my expectations are high!
