On Tapas, Karaoke, Birthdays & Pizza

I'm aware that the title of this post sounds pretty weird. It's just a short summing up of my weekend. And what a wonderful weekend this was. It started on Friday when my school friends and I went out to celebrate our friend Lydia's birthday which had been on the Monday. We all went to have a manicure which was lovely - I always find manicures so relaxing which was definitely needed after the week that went on for FOREVER. (Exaggerating? Moi?!) 

We then went back to Lydia's, got ready and went out to an amazing Spanish restaurant in Teddington. The three course meal was amazing. I didn't take a proper photo of the food but we had nachos to start, then tapas with chips and then ice cream and sorbet for pudding. I want to go back again this week, and every week that follows! It was such a funny evening and I think a girls night is just what I needed. On a side note, I feel so lucky and happy to have made a great group of friends at my new school. It was never going to be easy joining a school in which the majority of people in my year have already known each other for five years but Lish, Lydia, Flo and Emma have really taken me and Josie in (we were both new). They're the loveliest girls and I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful friends. 

Anyway, enough of the soppiness. That was a great night. I had to spend Saturday daytime doing lots of homework and essays (boo!) but then in the evening I got to go to Mackinlay's for her birthday party (yay!). Her parents had hired a karaoke machine which I originally thought was a big mistake but it was absolutely hilarious and I loved it. For those of you who don't know me, I am completely and utterly tone deaf. It makes me sad really, if I could have one talent it would definitely be to be able to sing. 

But singing with other people meant it didn't matter, not that being tone deaf has ever stopped me singing in the first place! It was such a funny night and so nice to catch up with a lot of my friends from my old town as always. 

Finally on Sunday Harry and I came to my house. We watched Invictus and ordered pizzas from Pizza Express. We talked about anything and everything and had a really great day. I love spending most of my Sundays with him just relaxing and catching up. Besides, I was pretty tired from the night before and nearly fell asleep on him so somehow I don't think I was up to going out properly!

So that was my weekend. It went much too quickly, as it always does but I know the next one is only five days away which I suppose isn't too bad. I'm sorry for the quality of these photos, all iphone ones I'm afraid! What did you do this weekend?
