A catch up with my girlfriends was long overdue, so we decided to rectify that with a day in Gloucester, Gloucestershire.
Last year, our men did so well to surprise Jodie and me with a weekend away in Cornwall for New Year that naturally, we had some living up to do. Therefore, along with the third in our trio, Nikki, we treated the boys to a weekend away in Ceredigion, Wales.
Last weekend found me and two friends, Jodie and Nikki, in chilly London. The day trip had one main purpose: to watch ‘Beauty & the Beast‘ – the original is my all-time favourite film – with the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall.
Every year, we head over to The Angel Inn Hotel at Pershore in Worcestershire for their Bonfire Night and Fireworks event and every time, it’s excellent. This year – yep, you guessed it! – was no different.
If you’re a follower of my blog, you’ll know that my two friends – Jodie and Nikki – and I meet up regularly for cake dates and catch ups. Every time we do, we talk about getting fitter but never actually do anything about it. Until now… We’ve decided to hike up Mount Snowdon next year!
The Spring weather this year has been glorious so far! Therefore, to make the most of this unexpected sun, my friends and I spent the day exploring some of the picturesque villages in The Cotswolds.
Today’s post is a bit different to what was initially thought. The original plan was to share some photographs from a Mother’s Day trip to Batsford Arboretum but unfortunately, my Mum was too unwell and we had to postpone. This meant I was left with a sunny day and nothing to do.
I am very much the serial planner in mine and Dave’s relationship; so for New Year, I asked Dave to book/organise something for us to do. After a couple of months of gently reminding – and annoying – him, he admitted that he and our friend, Carl, had booked a weekend away and that Jodie (Carl’s girlfriend)
Every few months, two of my girlfriends and I like to meet up to have a long catch up and eat cake; which consequently, we have now dubbed as our ‘cake dates’. For the first cake date of 2016, we decided to head to Café au Chocolat in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.
