Well, as predicted, we won the cricket. YAAAYYY! But, yes, we’ll see what happens in the next test in Adelaide… Oh, and the Wallabies trounced the Scots in the Rugby – that was fun too :-)
Had a pretty fab weekend, really. Friday night, shopping late. It’s really good, quite empty and no dramas.. Had a bit of a giggle moment when I turned a corner and there was a WHOLE AISLE full of Fosters! Ye Gods! How much beer are they expecting to sell??! I couldn’t help but laugh, and I wish I had a camera.. it looked amazing..
Saturday day didn’t do much – but Sat night was the Hinxton Silent Auction! What a fab night, as usual, a great village event that everyone turns out for. Lots of free food and wine (got quite drunk really – the world was spinning when I got home:) and ended up with two English countryside paintings, some Swarovski crystal jewellery and a box of turkish delight, all for a measley £24. Great night. Made some new friends, met some new neighbours…
Sunday was recovery day – although surprisingly I didn’t feel too bad.. must have been the pint of water I drank before bed and the other one I drank at about 3am. But Sunday night was my ‘thank you for cat-sitting’ dinner for Georgie and we went to Al Casbah on Mill Road. FANTASTIC! The food was wonderful, incredibly flavourful and HUGE portions. There is a grill in the front of the shop roasting all the shishkebab on the open coals, and a queue of people waiting for tables.. Food was fantastic and very decently priced, the mint tea was delicious and thoroughly enjoyed. Staff friendly and helpful – all in all a great night. We had to be rolled out of the restaurant, and then had a shaky moment of not remembering where the car was, but got home at about 9:30 and watched some West Wing before bed.
