I have not found my new groove yet. Still experimenting.
I had a fantastic weekend. I went to the Brixton Academy to see Groove Armada - one of my favourite bands. It was their last ever appearance. I hope they were fibbing and they play again.
We stayed here at The Church Street Hotel. It has a cuban mexican feel and is quirky and fun. Frida Kahlo kitsch lurks in every corner, bathrooms are tiled with beautiful bright tiles and the bedrooms had Green & Blacks' chocolate and colour washed walls. I loved the irony of a honesty bar in Brixton (you wrote in a little book what drinks you had). We had dinner at Angels & Gypsies which consisted of tapas and mojitas - well it was worth pretending we were in Mexico or Cuba. Cocktails at a bar. Then a DJ set at Brixton Academy, followed by an amazing show by Groove Armada and then another DJ set until 3 am ish in the morning. Finally, I am getting to live like an adult!!!
The hotel staff were great. I had had a pretty difficult week which included three trips to the dentist for the same piece of work to be done again and again, a puncture etc etc. I rang to check my booking as I wasn't convinced that due to the run of things going a bit Pete Tong that they would have my booking. The man told me in view of my bad week he would upgrade us so muchos gratias to him.
We had a lazy lunch at Covent Garden, steak and Rioja, and watched a very funny magician. A weekend of very happy memories.
Oh yes, one goal achieved this weekend = to dance in public and not feel inhibited. Impossible not to dance to this wonderous music. Thanks for still reading everyone xxxx
