It’s official. I’m now 40. Halfway to 80.
This weekend was packed full of fun times, cake, (lots and lots of cake) good friends lets not forget about the wonderful pressies.
Friday afternoon was spent in a little tea room in my town, 12 of us girlies piled in took over the place and scoffed.
all of the food was made by the owners, who were there to serve us. Absolutely gorgeous!
Friday night was spent at our friends house where we ate fish and chips, (only a chip butty for me *fu-lof-cake*)
Saturday (the Birthday) we headed off to Brighton.
Having never been to Brighton it is fair to say I was excited. Everyone told me the vintage shops were fabulous (they weren’t lying) and it is a very happening place with a great feel to it.
We spent our time wandering The Lanes (for anyone wanting to know, the North Lanes are best for vintage shops) visiting tea rooms (separate post for those!), and drinking ‘some’ wine.
The Graffiti was great!
Don’t you just love it when a sofa appears in front of your weary legs?
One day we will go back and go on The wheel.
My travelling companions. They are watching people get spun upside down on the ride at the end of the pier. No thanks!!
To the right of the pic above you can see the remains of the old Brighton Pier which was destroyed when it burnt down in 2003 leaving just the metal skeleton.
There is no photographic evidence that we spent the evening on Sat in one of Jamie Oliver's restaurant's. (verdict….very funky decor..food, ok), meeting up with some friends in a bar, and a trip to Budgens at 1am. Then spending a bit of time convincing the reception staff at the Premier Inn that our door key would not work even after 3 attempts of them ‘reprogramming’ it. We were not just a couple of drunks. The door really was faulty. (which btw was good for us as we have been refunded the FULL cost of our room due to their 100% good night guarantee!! )(which we actually knew nothing about until the nice desk lady asked for Mr D’s card to make the refund!)
Sunday was spent mulling the day before over at breakfast and on the way home visiting with a best friend from my Primary school (love face book) where we sat in the sun and ate more cake, and caught up over the last 18 or so years since we last saw each other!!
Look at us as respectable grown ups. The stories we could tell of our youth!
I think it wouldn’t be a lie to say I have been spoilt.
Hope you’ve all had a fun weekend too with lots of sun! (and cake)
