Catch-up

Here’s a post to catch up on some of the things that have happened over the weekend. Other than the engagement, that is.

  • Films: I’ve seen Gothika (which was terrible) and The Fog of War(which was an excellent view into the life lessons of the former US Secretary of Defence).
  • Food: I’ve eaten at Gaucho (an excellent Argentinian steakhouse) andThe Horseshoe (a good gastropub that brews its own ale and serves a supreme bread-and-butter pudding), both in Hampstead.
  • Running: I’ve been doing 10km every other day, or 5km each day, for the last two weeks. The fitness challenge at work is keeping me at it. I didn’t go out today because I spent hours walking around London.
  • Visitors: SWMNBN’s brother-in-law was in town for work, but with a day to spare. I took the day off to hang with him. Carluccio’s for some breakfast. Then the Natural History Museum, a walk though Hyde Park, noodles and sushi, and a tour of Soho and Covent Garden. From here, we walked across the Millennium Bridge to the Tate Modern gallery, a ride on the slide exhibit, and a walk along the South Bank.
