Monday Smiles

Summer is officially over, I know this for sure because we've had the heating on in the flat for the first time, there are lots of bugs going round the office and I've bought my first Christmas present.  Also, after swearing I'd never ever buy one, I ventured into Primark this week and bought myself a onesie.  I've never seen the appeal before but since losing so much weight I find myself getting cold a lot easier so suddenly a onesie seemed a necessity.  I really love giraffes so as soon as I saw that I could dress up as one I couldn't resist.  I didn't tell Simon I was getting one so he came home from work on Friday to find a giraffe hanging about in his flat.  So funny!

We went to our first gig together since I moved this week.  Simon has a bit of a crush on Ellie Goulding so I bought him a ticket to see her at the 02 Academy as a treat a while ago.  I didn't really know too much about her, although love some of her recent dance tunes, I really enjoyed going to see someone blind, I just sat quietly and listened to her voice and some of her songs were truly beautiful.  I've now bought her new album and she has herself a new fan.   We have now booked our next concert, to see the Wanted at the arena next March.  I feel very lucky to have a wonderful boyfriend who's prepared to go and see a boy band with me, poor guy probably doesn't know what he's let himself in for.

After a couple of weeks of hunting it looks like I've found my perfect Winter lunchtime hangout.  I popped over the river to the Sage as I'd never been inside the building before and it's the perfect place.  It has places to buy coffee, plenty of comfy seats and beautiful views.  Sold!

Jamie's Italian is coming to Newcastle!  Exciting!  We shall be adding it to our never ending list of places we want to try.

 and here begins another week!
