It was our wedding anniversary on Tuesday. On Thursday we tried hydrotherapy pilates for the first time! AND Friday … I am delighted to announce our online writing community (writingforums.com) published Halloween Tales: Short Stories of Supernatural Terror, and two of my stories were selected for publication. Happy dance in progress! Please take a look
As I mentioned above Tuesday we celebrated our wedding anniversary with a night away at the Marina Rio hotel in Lagos. The hotel enjoys a central location for both the central Lagos and the Marina with its great selection of bars and restaurants.
Although tempted to go to one of the Marina bars for a cocktail we decided to take a pre-dinner drink and an aperitif on our balcony which offered fabulous views over Lagos Marina and along the Avenida.
We also booked an Uber. Our first. Yep, we were Uber virgins. It took more than a few cuss words to master the technology and book a car but once we’d cracked the code … we were cooking on gas and the car arrived within minutes.
We wined and dined at No Patio where we enjoyed an amazing meal in a magical walled garden. A memorable evening. We topped off the evening with one for the road. An Irish Coffee. Perfect for the #weekendcoffeeshare
Wednesday – Oh joy, not. We went to Ikea and got sucked into the maze and almost lost the will to live. We made a spur-of-the-moment purchase in the shape of an industrial-style standard lamp which looked black in the showroom but once home and, without the glare of artificial lights, was grey. Arrrrrggghhhh …
Have you ever tried to repack an Ikea product back in the box? Nope… well, I can tell you it would be easier for a toddler to crack the Rubik cube.
Oh, and Mr. Piglet was overjoyed because we ate in the restaurant. He loves Ikea meatballs. Are there any other fans out there?
Still, at least we enjoyed a walk around Mar shopping and I added another charm to my Pandora bracelet. I adore Pandora jewellery!
Is anyone participating in NaNoWriMo this year? I bit the bullet and registered.
Thursday – Another first. We tried Hidro Pilates … at least I think that’s what it was. Anyways, great fun! It rained most of the day, so a win-win for the plants and me.
Friday – yep, happy dance in progress. (although not too much dancing as I still ache from the hydrotherapy exercise from yesterday) Can’t wait to order my copy of the Anthology
