Three 5ives

A bit of a rush today as I finished the Class at 3pm, drove over to Bedford and headed for the Capital.

The reason? The semi regular get-together members of ‘The 5ive’ – our informal gathering for those of us who worked with BA ‘back in the day’ on their SMA project. Tonight, we were a little thin on the ground, with only three of us – June, Antoinette and yours truly – but that didn’t stop us having a good time.


First stop was The Euston Flyer in the Euston Road accompanied by a glass of London Pride before moving on to Pizza Express in Euston Road a few doors away for 7pm.



…and the place was really busy! I think we got the one of the last few tables available. A few hours of catching-up followed, helped along by very good service, superb food – and the obligatory 30%-off voucher!


Ooo! that was spicy!


One of my ‘5-a-day’!

We managed three-courses, a bottle of vino and a tea/coffee, all for a very reasonable £25 each (and that included the tip). Not bad for this part of London! We even got to set a date for a pre-Christmas get-together AND weekend date for 5ive's collective get-away in 2018!

We called it a night around 9 and wandered back in the direction of St Pancras. The girls took the Tube and I headed for the Bedford train. Perfect timing for me as I only had to wait about five-minutes. By 10.20, I was unlocking the car at Bedford station, and by 11 I’d hit the pillow!

A great night out!
