Your destiny lies in your own hands

What a quiet week!

I decided on Sunday afternoon that I’d go see a movie. I went to Mercato and got a ticket for ‘Birdman’. It was empty – apart from one guy. I love empty cinemas!

Apart from yoga on Monday morning, I didn’t leave the house the rest of the day. And not on Tuesday either.

On Wednesday I had a session with Trevor. That evening I went to my piano lesson and then met a friend for dinner at Loca. We had the spinach and artichoke dip to start with, and I was thrilled to see that the sauteed prawns in jalapeno butter were back on the menu. I’d tried them once last year (they were a special) and ever since then they haven’t been available. Now they’re on the actual menu and it looks like they’re permanent! Just look at the size of the prawns…

I think it’s the best thing on the menu. As it was ladies night we also got two tokens each for margaritas.

On Thursday I went to get my hair coloured. I’d been toying with the idea of changing the colour altogether but my regular hairdresser wasn’t there so I just stuck to my usual root colour. Maybe next time…

That evening I had dinner with some friends at their place. It was very casual, just five of us – roast chicken, potatoes, loads of cheese. They’d had a photo shoot of their dining table earlier that day – isn’t it gorgeous??

I was home early – before 11pm. I spent all day Friday at home – I was working and reading. I was home most of Saturday too – but by the time 5pm came around I decided I’d go to the Dubai Mall – just for a walk around. I ended up buying a pair of sparkly shoes from LK Bennett. I also went to Kinokuniya and picked up two more books. Well, a girl has to treat herself sometimes, no?

I love my life.
