ruby tuesday...

The Good News: We've found a new quiz!
The Bad News: It's on a Tuesday!

The Westside is our new home on a Tuesday night for some quiz action. Tuesday is also "Ruby Tuesday" where you can get a curry, rice, nan and a pint for £4.95.

So, we arrived at the pub at 7pm, then when everyone was ordering their food, I had to leave to go to dancing arriving back just in time for the quiz to start. Not to miss out on the curry, I made sure they ordered it just before 9pm so it would be waiting for me when I got there.

The quiz was good and we didn't too badly on our first visit - 3rd place!

Better luck next week.

We went to La Tasca last night for Richard's birthday.

George had been plotting for everyone to attend for weeks with poor Richard thinking he was off out to a French restaurant for a romantic meal for two!

He was very shocked to see everyone, and more so to see his parents there.

After dinner, we has a swift half at Cafe Du Sport next door before piling back to Richard and George's. At 6.30am we wandered home and went to bed (although I feel asleep for 2 hours!)

a civialised night out...

We has a very civialised evening last night.

Instead of the usual, meet in pub, have lots of drink and pass out in bed nights, we went out for dinner with Jason and Debbie.

And surprisingly, the restaurant of choice was a chinese at the Shanpan rather than a burn your mouth curry normally associated with Jason ;o)

Of course we had a few extra drinks before the meal and after, but not for long as we were too stuffed to move.

new girl...

It was my first day at work today and I was quite happy and relieved to find that I wasn't quite a new girl as I thought.

I'm the 5th person to join the company in the last 3 months, 3rd in the last 6 weeks so everyone is still pretty new.

So far so good and everyone seems very friendly :o)

To celebrate, we headed to Dhaka Spice for dinner. Monday and Wednesday's are "happy night" where you can get a 5 course indian feast for £7.95 each. Very nice, although we couldn't tempt anyone to join us.

girlie night...

Last night was the night for a long overdue Girls Night Out!

There's was only the 4 of us - Me, Debbie, George and for a short while Helen but we had a good night.

We started out in Old Orleans for cocktails before moving onto meet George's housemate Lisa and her mate in Cafe Du Sport.

The boys were out too and had declared The Fez Club as out of bounds as that was there destination for the night. But, with not much choice of clubs in Reading, we decided to head over there anyway as it was posisble that we might not even see them.

Having been in the club for only about 5 minutes, we spotted them, and then ignored them for the rest of the night!

Incidently, it was also my last day at work yesterday! :o)
