Time for the ubiquitous Monday morning recap of the weekend past. On account of the fact that a bunch of people have asked me how the date went on Friday night, I'll be extending coverage to include Friday night. (Rob, it's ok you can uncover your eyes, there will be no over-share.)
So, Friday night was date night and it was very nice. That's not damning with faint praise, it really was very nice. He went to a lot of effort and made a lovely vegetarian Indian meal, complete with gorgeous tiny marinated figs for desert that he served with cinnamon and honey yoghurt. We hung out, cuddled, talked about books, opera and philosophy. Cuddled some more. It was a really pleasant evening. I don't know that either of us is all that particularly keen on rushing into making it something more, but for the time being it's friendly, casual and uncomplicated, which is great.
Saturday morning was the kiss or cry (aka the weigh in at Weight Watchers) which, given that I lost nearly a kilo last week (making it 4.5Kg so far), was more 'kiss' than 'cry'. The rest of the day was a meditation retreat, and in the evening I just hung out at home, watched some tv and had a much needed early night.
Sunday was lots of fun. I met up with Mikey (the lovely ex) at The Beauchamp Hotel on Oxford Street for a couple of drinks and a chat before heading to the Flickxibition '06 photography exhibition that I mentioned here. It was lovely to catch up with the people I met through the Sydney Photobloggers group, and to meet new people like Morgan, whose blog Morgspace I started reading recently, and his friends. There is a Flickxibition Group now on Flickr which has a bunch of photos from the evening, including this one of us all acting like complete nerds doing the 'Flickr handsign'. As the exhibition drew to a close we headed to Wagamama for a group dinner. I had my favourite vego noodle soup and Gyoza combo, diet be damned! It was a lovely night, full of lots of laughs and good food, and the perfect end to a good weekend.
