It’s been another busy one in the Baillie household.
After a manic day at work on Friday I had a wee girlie night over at a friends house which was lovely to have a catch up and a good old gossip 🙂
Beth was picked up by my in-laws in the morning to go for a day out so the boy and I decided to go for some shopping and lunch which was lovely. Then we got organised and headed into Glasgows West End which is new territory for us.
I had booked dinner for us in a little Italian bistro called Mimmos on Ashton Lane which had been recommended to me through a friend and it was gorgeous. The food was lovely and really fresh and the staff were friendly and attentive, it wasn’t the cheapest of places but I think it was well worth it! then we went to a few different pubs to see what was about. Now I am born and bred in Glasgow and have only been to the West End once so we did a wee bit of exploring and I must admit I always thought that end of town was a little bit pretentious, but having spent some time there my opinion has totally changed.
Mark and I were sitting outside a pub having a few drinks and chatting and both commented on how nice it was to sit outside and be in such nice surroundings without neds wandering about, there’s no way it would have been that nice and peaceful if we were sitting down Argyle Street end!
We went to a place called NUDE which was great, very funky inside and the tunes were brilliant, hats off to the dj 🙂
We left Ashton lane and jumped on the subway to get back to St Enochs and decided to go for another drink and we ended up in Hootenanny at St Enochs Square. We went in and there was a guy sitting in the corner playing the guitar and singing and oh my god this dude had an excellent voice and as the pub was pretty empty was having great banter with the crowd.
One of the guys singing along caught my eye because he was the absolute double of Marks best friend William. His hair, beard even the way he was dressed was the exact same and we started chatting to him and he was cool guy. We had such a giggle in the there and then headed home and arrived back at the house about 2am and I was passed out cold by about 5 past!
Beth had a birthday party at 11am so we were up and out early to get her picked up and dressed, why I thought going to a party with 20 sugared up toddlers was a good idea with a hangover I will never know but Beth had a great time and it was nice to finally meet some of the kids and their parents.
We all came home from the party, had a quick pit stop at my Mums and then came home for a nap 🙂
I have just caught up on the finale of Doctor Who and I totally loved it! I was devastated when David Tennant announced he was leaving and thought DW would be rubbish but I am so pleased to say that I have loved this series and Amy Pond is the best companion yet!
This weekend has been mad busy as usual but Mark and I had a great night out and was worth the sore head this morning!
Hope you all had a great weekend too 😀
