Hi lovelies! It’s been absolutely amazing having Dalia and her friend Sara here this weekend. Yesterday when the girls got back from a day in Loch Lomond we met up for some Indian food in Ashton Lane. It was great to almost have all the girls together (we missed Marija and Mégane) but almost like the good old times.
After dinner we headed to the new Innis & Gunn bar that’s opened at the end of the lane. It had a really nice vibe and the music was amazing. The girls loved their drinks, I stuck to water. I can have just as fun without alcohol, I still dance like a crazy person and my company is so great that I don’t need to get drunk to enjoy them 😉 I don’t have time to be hungover, I want to wake up the next day and feel good plus alcohol never agreed with me. I have the worst hangovers and have thrown up far too many times in my days due to alcohol. My body doesn’t tolerate alcohol well at all. However, if I feel like a drink I’ll have it. I just go with the flow and how I’m feeling 🙂 The last time I had a drink I think was at Christmas. It’s been a while now I just realised!
The worst is when people try to guilt trip you into drinking or insist on ordering you something. I know they most of the time just want to be nice but a no is a no in my world and sometimes you feel really uncomfortable when people are being pushy about it. Alcohol is quite a sensitive topic. I’ve noticed that a lot people immediately assume you are boring or they get a bit uncomfortable when you don’t drink and they do. It’s very interesting. Don’t let people push you into making decisions you’re not comfortable with. It’s your life and health, stand your ground and if they are being pushy they’re not good friends.
Anyway, this wasn’t meant to be a rant about drinking haha. Before heading home we swung by the Grosvenor and some of other friends joined us too which was a lot of fun.
Despite getting to bed quite late last night (for being me anyway) I got up to go to the gym this morning. Afterwards I met the girls for brunch at good old Singl-end. It’s always amazing being there. I love despite how busy they are you never feel pressured to hurry to finish your meal. During the weekends I notice a lot of brunch places almost push you out to the door which makes the experience super stressful. I understand they need to get as many people in as possible but sometimes they maybe forget a little bit about the people eating and their experience.
After brunch Dalia, Sara and I walked about in the West End since it’s Sara’s first time in Glasgow. It was so lovely to get a chance to spend more time with them and to hear how their life is in Dublin. They both work at Google and it sounds amazing. I’m so happy Dalia seems to have created a great life over there even though we miss her here.
I love when people visit, it’s so special and amazing. Unfortunately the girls are leaving tomorrow but hopefully we’ll all manage to meet up in the evening before they’re off. I really want to go and visit them soon. I loved Dublin when Jamie and I were there a couple of years ago so would love to go back.
Now it’s time for some My Kitchen Rules with Jamie (we absolutely love this Australian show, I think it’s the fourth season we’ve watched. It’s like a combination of Masterchef and Come Dine With Me but better). We are just waiting for dinner our that’s simmering away on the stove. A perfect evening xx
