A couple of weekends ago, my friend Rachael and I decided to check out the Brighton Artbox cafe, the UK’s first dedicated character themed cafe. The current theme is Pusheen which I think is staying until the end of October, before a new character comes along!
A while ago, the lovely people at Mercure got in touch and asked if I fancied staying in their Brighton hotel with a plus one. Whilst I would have loved J to come with me, he wasn’t feeling up to it, so I knew that one of my best friends, Charlie, would be the perfect choice to come and check it out with me 😀
As she lives in London, we decided to make a day of it, shopping in Brighton first, before enjoying a complementary three course meal in the hotel’s restaurant, then relaxing in our room while doing some serious lazing around and TV watching!
As months go, August was pretty spectacular!! Not only was it my birthday but I had two whole weeks of annual leave and the weather was glorious 😀 😀
Well there goes July 😬😬 We’re now thoroughly into August and it’s my birthday month. Woo!! I’ll be 35 so let’s mention that as little as possible 😂😂
Holy smokes this post is up super late, isn’t it? I’ve been incredibly busy over the past couple of weeks with a lot of home admin bits to do, so I haven’t really had time to sit down and write or take photos 🙁
Sometimes life works out pretty great, doesn’t it? I met one of my oldest best friends, Charlie, on my first day at a new school (aged 14). We used to live really near each other and walked to school together most days.
When we were 16, she moved away, but we still kept in touch, writing letters to each other 🙂 She recently moved back to England, finding a place in London, which is the closest we’ve lived to each other for years!!
I cannot believe we’re about to enter June!! The days and months seem to be going super fast now. I’m definitely looking forward to summer, but I’d very much like it to slow down now please!!
Ages ago, Alice and I decided that we really needed to meet up this year and, as Portsmouth wasn’t too far for either of us to head to, we decided to meet up there. Alice was then invited to try out The Cosy Club for lunch in Portsmouth and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to have a catch up!
Last weekend, I headed to the Brighton Cookery School (on London Road) to hang out with Ben from Mob Kitchen and loads of other foodies to “cook” two incredibly simple vegan recipes!
Well, what a weird month that was! We had some lovely sunshine over a glorious bank holiday, then we had high winds. We also found out that J has severe sleep apnoea
