Oh, What A Day!

Yoga, baby!
First, I am very happy to announce that the Integral class at Merchant City Yoga was great and I really enjoyed it. The teacher was nice and quite funny, and explained all the stuff really well.  I'm looking forward to going back.  Also, because the teacher was a wee bit late, he didn't charge us!  So KM and I still have 10 classes to take on the vouchers that we bought.  Score!

KM pre-yoga
After the yoga... what a day we had!  Firstly, we headed into Merchant City and popped into the Bernardo's on Wilson Street.  I got a really funky pink belt for a fiver (the stuff in this shop is great, but it ain't cheap, for a charity shop!) plus a couple of books, which is good cause I was just about to start in on one of my regular Oh-no-I've-nothing-to-read-now-what-am-I-going-to-do?? panics.  Then we headed further into the M.C. to get something to eat.  Maybe a coffee or something...

Well, we passed this new place, Boudoir, on Bell Street, and saw an offer in the window - pastry and coffee for £2.95.  And then we saw another offer: cheesecake and a glass of Prosecco for £3.95!  So, of course, we went in.  And it was superb! 

The aftermath
We also got a plate of antipasti, worth £5, which came with Brie, salami, Parma ham, french bread, olives and oil and vinegar.  The place was busy, so the waitress was a bit run off her feet and we had to wait ages for her to bring the food over, so she gave us it for free!  Bargains galore!

Bottoms up!

After going round to the pet shop to check out kittens for KM (they didn't have any), we popped into Corinthian and had a bottle of red wine!  We went into the small bar called Bootleg, which is all done up in huge mirrors, chandeliers, embroidered chairs, etc.  And we got a very reasonable bottle of Sangiovese red wine for £15 (definitely the best idea, because cocktails are about £7 each) and they were playing great blues-guitar music.  I would totally recommend it if you're looking for a bit of decadence and indulgence, without breaking the bank!

I also recommend have a friend like KM to join you in such adventures, but you'll have to find your own, because KM is already mine.
