Night time ramblings

I love a good (and safe/well-lit) night time walk. I try to go on one at least once a week, but unfortunately it doesn’t always work out that I have a few hours to spare. I had to introduce myself and say one of my favourite things to do last week and I said, “I’m Annabel and I like walking.” 100% truth.

Won tons and katsu don

I went for dinner with my boyfriend at Ten Ten Tei on Brewer Street. I had the katsu don and he had ramen noodle soup with tempura. I absolutely love that little restaurant. Really good value for money and I can vouch for the sushi too, especially as sushi is usually so expensive in London. Cheap and cheerful always wins my vote.

We also went to the closing gala of the Birds Eye View film festival. The film showing was Whip It, Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut film about roller derby. I love Drew Barrymore and have for a very long time. The film was a lot of fun and had that popular indie feel without being too pretentious, even with Ellen Page (which I thought was quite an achievement). In a lot of ways, it was a standard coming-of-age-through-sporting-achievement film, but it was fun nonetheless.

On an appropriate note, I’m off to watch the roller derby tonight! I will attempt to take photos!

Remember, remember.

I’m on my way out the door, but I thought I owed this blog a post. These are some pretty standard photos from bonfire night, which I spent in the wonderful, sleepy town of Tring in Hertfordshire. Heading out to lunch in Covent Garden with my good friend Momo so worry not! I will bring my camera!
