Last night Adam & I had a date night to see "Amy" at the Electric Cinema on Portobello Road. EmHen had very kindly bought me vouchers for my birthday last year & I realised I'd never got round to using them. Well it was worth the wait....we walked in & had an instant 'wow' moment. There was a bar where everyone was mingling on the right, sofas to the left, rows of armchairs then the front row was made up of beds. We had booked 2 armchairs which we sank into with a small table & light between us. Each seat had its own padded foot rest that opened up to reveal a cashmere blanket!
The film was amazing. If you haven't seen it yet I'd really recommend it...but take tissues! Yes we all know the ending but her story is really touching.
So what with the Elextric Cinema & the Odessy in St Albans I look forward to watching films in a much more luxurious atmosphere going forward & will hopefully never have to step into a Vue or Cineworld again! Support independent cinemas, it's so worth it for the few extra quid!
I've got another chance to sit & do nothing - this time at the hairdressers. Huzzah! The only place where you can chill out & switch off & come out looking better than when you started!
Trouble is though I can't upload this fascinating post until I get home to a wifi area because thanks to my rubbish contract yet again I've run out of data. I'm due an upgrade but just can't decide between phones & I'm not sure these stubby little monkey fingers will cope with the vast expanse of screen that is an iPhone 6!
Carlton's fixed whoop! I skipped off to the station only to find I'd left my Oyster Card at home....after a few choice "Oh Bothers" I bought a paper ticket & set off...opening one of my G&Ts as soon as I sat down! Im now on my second train & second G&T...& am ready for whatever the 3rd thing may be....who knows....if I miss my stop I end up in Brighton.....every cloud & all that!
....then when you're stuck in a car park with a flat tyre. Joy of joys! It couldn't have happened when Carlton was on the drive or when I was at work...no it's when I'm going out to see my girlies. Ruddy typical! At least the sun's out....there's a breeze...I have my Kindle & Minions Harribo to gobble up (sorry Adam!) I do have 4 cans of G&T in my bag but I don't think the Green Flag man would appreciate a drunk KtP giving him a hug on arrival! Ah well at least I can catch up on my reading....
