Weekend #22

So, thanks to the Queen, we have been graced with a lovely long weekend here in the UK to celebrate 60 years on the throne - and how marvelous that has been (I love the queen and am loving being British at the moment-Britain is a lovely place to be right now, minus the rubbish rain)!

Anyway, on to my weekend jaunts...(is that the right word, hmmm not sure)

Friday: Friday night was spent with the girls - after a bloody long week in the office (listening to the most self-obsessed person all week long), a night out was definitely needed so we headed off to one of the locals for yummy food and band night! The band was a bit rubbish and the average age of the place was probably 50, but a good night was still had having a good old catch up!

Saturday: Today is a day I have waited for for a long time - wedding dress shopping! Not for me I should add, but for one of the besties. Now, I say I've waiting a long time for this as I am obsessed with anything wedding! Remember the episode of Friends when Monica get's out her book of wedding plans, or when she's on the headset for Phoebe's wedding, yup, that's me! And, of all my friends who have married recently, even when I was Maid of Honour, I have never had the opportunity to go dress shopping as I've been too far away-but not for this one! It was such a lovely day, and I'm not going to lie, tears were shed! I tried to sneak a few pics as the other two besties from the group are in London and Australia so I wanted them to enjoy the experience too, but got caught on a number of occasions - it is frowned upon to take pictures, oops!
The evening was spent curled up with an M&S dine in for 2 and Sherlock Holmes 2 - I can honestly say I was exhausted, and I didn't try a single dress on!

Sunday: The bf and I headed in to Chester today for a spot of mooching and to spend M&S vouchers on the softest bedding ever (it's like silk)! Whilst there, we headed to one of my new favourite places to eat, Hickory's Smokehouse where the food is served in camping tins, on wooden chopping boards and you get a mop to glaze your own ribs - LOVE IT!
I finally got around to finishing Desperate Housewives this evening and I have been inconsolable - I have cried so bloody much with it all-if you've watched it, you'll know what I mean (the bf doesn't quite get it)!
All in all, it's been a love weekend, which is set to continue for the next two days as we continue to enjoy the extra bank holiday we have!

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend too!
