Sunday Summary #72


1.Flowers 2.Mini burgers and hundreds of chips for lunch 3.Starburst Martini cocktail

There seems to have been a distinct lack of Instagramming this week, which is very unlike me! I've been quite busy this week, but the kind of busy that involves writing shopping lists and scouring through the library catalogue and replying to emails, rather than the kind of busy when you can take nice pictures of stuff. I did, however, manage lunch out on Monday to the Bristo Bar and Kitchen, where old favourite Assembly used to be. Our waitress was a bit of a space cadet, but the food was pretty good and the chip portions were huge, much to my delight. As it was a Monday lunchtime, I thought I better not indulge in a drink, but I did notice their cocktails were pretty cheap (by Edinburgh standards, anyway) so I may have to go back of an evening to try some out.

Speaking of cocktails, I headed out on Friday evening to catch up with some friends at Tonic. My first cocktail was a Starburst Martini and oh my gaaaaaad it was amazing, tasted just like a strawberry Cornetto! As it got later in the evening, the lights kept getting dimmer and the music kept getting louder, and like the old ladies we are, we decided to head somewhere a little bit quieter so we could actually hear what we were saying - oh how depressing, we're only 22! Luckily there's a Wetherspoons just round the corner so we stopped off there for a couple more drinks before bedtime.

Apart from that, this week has been fairly boring. I had a meeting with my supervisor on Friday, so have now finally chosen a topic for my dissertation - this means I'm actually going to have to start doing the research for it now arrrghhh. I also have a presentation to do for my internship in a couple of weeks, so will be doing lots of work on that next week. I absolutely hate public speaking, so doing a 20 minute presentation is really my idea of fun, NOT.

This evening I'm off to the new Pizza Express in Morningside for a little launch party, ah the perks of being a blogger! My invite arrived through the post attached to a bottle of wine, so I'm already sure it's going to be a great evening - they know the way to my heart!

What have you been up to this week?
