Portrait of a weekend alone

With the Mrs away enjoying a girlie trip to Istanbul, I was left to my own devices last weekend. And let me tell you it was pretty dull!! I always complain we don't go out on weekends, but when I get the chance to do it alone, I just can't find the motivation...
Sure, saturday was busy! Went to the office around lunch time to meet my friend and photographer Pepe for a session. Pepe is shooting different people of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, for what he designed the "As we are" series. And I was very happy to be invited to feature!!! (I will post one of the photos tomorrow).
After the shoot and a meal at Yoshino, I arranged to meet an old friend in Shoreditch to watch the Wales x Ireland game with her and her new boyfriend. When I got there, the Water Poet, it was already packed with Irish and a few Welsh, and watching the game there was brilliant, even though Wales lost...
I had a London Pride with them and said goodbye, catching a bus towards Vauxhall. There, I made my way to Cafe Portugal, to watch the Benfica x Sporting League Cup. At least Benfica won, even though they should have lost...

Sunday was DIY day, so I woke up early(ish) and went to town to buy a few seeds I was missing. Then spent the day cleaning my barbecue cart (next weekend is barbecue afternoon at Lua's with the bloggers) and planting onions, flowers, tomatoes, chives, coriander, basil and chillies. Then Lost was on and the time just slipped by...

... I miss my babe!!!!
