On Monday after work, I met up with Bertie for a quick dinner in the city centre. He’s going away next Tuesday for a couple of weeks and wanted to see if we could meet before he left. Dinner was really nice (who knew that meatballs in BBQ sauce could be so nice?) and Bertie was great company, giving me a cash gift for the date – which was used at my local MAC counter! We’ll hopefully be meeting again at the beginning of next month.

I’m spending this evening with Heckler in the serviced apartment, which I’ve been looking forward to for weeks. It’ll be so nice so spend some quality time without one or other of us having to rush off to be elsewhere. Plus it’ll be a great prelude to our two days together in London.
