Happy Monday! I hope you had a lovely 4-day week and weekend – not long until the next bank holiday, and it feels as though the weather is definitely taking a turn for the better!
Here’s everything I was loving last week.
As Monday was bank holiday, Jordan and I took a drive from Warwick (where we stayed on the Sunday night) to Leamington Spa, which was only about 15 minutes away. It reminded me of parts of London and Bath mixed together, but it was such a lovely place and somewhere I would definitely go back to. We had brunch sat in the sunshine and it was a lovely way to spend the last day of the bank holiday.
On Tuesday, my team and I went to Yara in Alderley Edge as we were in a 7-hour long meeting. It was such a lovely meal (and a very much needed break) and we all managed to catch up properly as a whole team. We shared a few different mezze dishes and had a main each, and there was so much left that a few of us took it back to work for the next day.
I met my gal pal, Jacinta, on Tuesday evening to head to the cinema to see I Feel Pretty with Amy Schumer. I can’t remember the last time I went to the cinema, but the film was so good and it was nice to do something different on an evening – and always good to catch up with a friend.
Jordan and I were invited to try the newly refurbished Gusto in Didsbury village on Thursday night. We both went for three courses (obvs) and the staff were so lovely and even took me into the kitchen to meet the chefs and see some of the food being prepared. Gusto has always been one of my favourite chains and it didn’t disappoint this time either!
On Friday it was my Mum’s birthday so we drove over to my cousins where some of my family were having a little party for her for the evening. We had nibbles and a birthday cake and all sang happy birthday to her! I love spending time with my family, and every time I see them I wish we were able to see each other more, especially now all the kids are growing up so fast!
A few of the work girls and I had been planning a bottomless brunch for a few weeks at Rosylee in Manchester, but it just had to be the weekend that I’d started antibiotics for my tooth so unfortunately, I couldn’t have a drink… pray for me! It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon though – we’ll just have to do another one soon!
Jordan and I thought it would be a good idea to go for a walk on Sunday morning as the sun was shining. We walked to Chorlton Water Park which is one of our favourite spots and spent a couple of hours basking in the sunshine – a great way to start the day off.
If you didn’t know this about me, I’m a quarter Australian! On Sunday, my second cousin came over from Melbourne with his wife and we had a family gathering at my Nan’s on my Dad’s side of the family. After hearing all of their stories about Australia, I’m making it my mission to get out there in the next couple of years.
