Had the biggest weekend with nawl_v
. See her post here (contains DMC spoilers)
Went down Fri night and we went to see DMC. Oh. Em. Gee. Awesomeness. I think I'll devote a whole post to it, so stay tuned.
Saturday we went antique-ing (anticking? antiqueing? antiquing? *shrug*) in Paddington. They have so many awesome shops! Honestly, we shopped for hours, just looking at stuff and dreaming of the day when we'll be able to furnish our houses with gorgeous Victorian armchairs and four-poster beds. I have developed an interest in porcelain and checked out the various Royal Doulton, Royal Winton and Carltonware. I have decided I might start collecting nautical things - just for the sake of collecting something :) Royal Doulton has this one fabulous plate of the HMS Victory that I'd love. Nawl got a shiteload of vintage photos and postcards, which was awesome. There's one of this chick who is totally the female Stephen Fry, poor dear.
Saturday night we settled in to watch The Doctor. Oh, how I have missed thee, Doctor!! Ten is so manic, but then again I guess Nine was pretty manic too. I spent much of the episode making snide comments about Rose but it was great to watch the show on the telly proper, and not just my computer screen :p I never noticed before, but the Aussie boy from Coyote Ugly
(Adam Garcia) is in this ep! He looks all grown up and serious in his suit, poor thing. He was the PM's assistant.
After that we decided not to be sad sacks and went out to West End for a drink. I actually managed to get Nawl into a pub! *faints with wonder* It was an interesting night as it's only my second weekend out since the No Smoking legislation came in. I must say it makes one's evening more pleasant. And that's coming from a smoker. I didn't feel the need to light up (much) and the air is certainly clearer!
Sunday we went shopping in the city, I came away with only one new CD (U2's Pop
) and some bling from Diva, which I thought was very restrained of me!
