[Thursday 1st November]
Had a little chat with my manager this afternoon, which was very fruitful. Whilst I think I'm still going to be a bit overworked in the coming days and weeks, at least now I know that my manager recognises this and has promised to do something about it. Plus we agreed I should still take my holiday the week after next, so I also have a decent break to look forward to.

In the evening, Mum arrived in London, and I went to Euston to meet her off her train. We braved the rush hour tube (it wasn't so bad) and headed straight to the flat. Once Chie had got back from work, the three of us headed out for dinner - I had decided to try the little tapas place nearby. It's a small chain (just two places that I know of), and whilst I'd been to the one near my office a couple of times, this was the first time to try the one near our flat. The menu was the same, but the atmosphere was a bit different - a bit more "local" I suppose - and I rather liked it. Ate all the usual tapas type stuff - tortilla espanola, patatas bravas, mushrooms, artichokes etc etc. All very nice.

Well, that's not fair. Your changed the content of your entry. Now, the "I did it again" comment no longer makes sense. ("Oops, I did it again", Britney S.)

Yes it was great, once you decided which door would open! Nice genuinely friendly waiter as well, gently correcting your pronunication of some dishes. I'll certainly go there again.

I thought I did a pretty good job on the pronunciation front, considering I have never learnt Spanish at all, and have only been there twice, for a sum total of less than a week.

I love dipping into your Journal every few months - I thinks it's great that you write what you have for tea every day!
