(This post WILL be picture heavy and I have no apologies!)
Friday: So today I was in London - I got my train late on Thursday night and arrived at friend #1's house around 11pm! So what to do in London - head to Wimbledon of course! I have never been to Wimbledon before & decided that I should experience it whilst I was there - so after waking up at 5:30am, arriving at Wimbledon for 7:30am and queuing for my ground tickets, I found myself in a prime spot on Henman Hill and settled in for the day! Now, I have to say now - I would definitely recommend, if you have never been, you really should! The atmosphere was amazing! I did unfortunately get quite a bit of sunburn (on just the one side, because that's how I roll) but it was all worth it! Unfortunately (or fortunately) I only managed to stay for one set and a few games of the Murray match before heading on back into Central London for dinner with friend #1!

You've got to have strawberries when at Wimbledon
We headed to Planet Hollywood as I had a Living Social deal, which was just a bargain - 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 glasses of wine with no restirtctions to the menu, we both choose the sirloin steak and it was lovely! We then headed to a bar for half price cocktails which led to a very tired & drunken Cat and some ridiculous dancing -the phrase dance like no-one is watching springs to mind!
Saturday: This morning involved a much needed lie-in, a) because of my early morning yesterday and b) because of my slightly fragile state! Once up and feeling slightly human, I headed off to friend #2's place! We decided to have a quite an indulgent afternoon which inlcuded a visit to the Laduree cafe in Covent Garden!
Now this was my first ever experience of macaroons and OH MY-I was not disappointed at all! Following there, we headed on through Soho and found ourselves at the Hummingbird Bakery and it would of just been rude not to purchase a cupcake (or 2 in my case #fattyalert)!
We then spent the evening at a lovely local pub before heading home for an early night - I know, pretty lame!
Sunday: Today was a day for friend #3 - again, I trekked across London (I seriously wished my friends lived closer to each other) to visit my friend's new place and have an amazing roast cooked for me! It was lovely to have a relaxing afternoon after the busyness of the last few days and great to catch up! Once suitably stuffed, I headed on back to Euston to catch my train home!
I had a fantastic weekend - it was so lovely being with friends! Friends really do make life seem just fine and dandy!
The next weekend is upon us - I am definitely looking forward to a chilled out weekend! What are you up to?
