The boyfriend was called to the bar on Thursday, which means he can now officially call himself a Barrister! (But a non-practising one until he gets Pupillage, which is incredibly hard- 3/1000 applicants are successful at each chamber roughly). Anyway, Middle Temple is the last Inn of Court to make students wear the full regalia to be called:
I love the Great Hall. I've been with D for a few formal dinners before, and the wine and port flow freely (a little too freely on one occasion which resulted in D losing consciousness outside a Barrister's chambers and a trip to A&E), and the food is yum! Apparently Shakespeare's Twelth Night premiered here =)
On other news, loved Harry Potter, and shed a tear or two at the end. I saw the full length trailer for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, so excited about that also! Narnia, Aslan, Reepicheep, I'm happy. (I notice all are on trend with the peg leg trousers)
Yesterday we went to see D's brother's art exhibition, near Brick Lane. I have to say, I'm not too keen on some modern art..a few bits of bricks, a video of a man and an ironing board, hmm.. give me Van Gogh or Gauguin any day. We went for a curry in Brick Lane after [=
Pretty decorations in Spitalfields.
I'm hoping to get some Christmas Shopping done today. Oxford Street is pedestrianised which is fun, but probably means more people :S
