Weekend #27

So last weekend was a long weekend for me - I had Thursday & Friday off work and headed down to London to spend time with the girls! 

Thursday: After an early morning train to get in to the London at a reasonable time, I met up with one of the girls and we spent the afternoon enjoying afternoon tea (which I used my groupon voucher that I received) and had a pretty lovely afternoon! With my fish allergy (actually, it's a phobia but I tell places it's an allergy, I don't think they'd actually be that bothered because it sounds utterly bonkers) and the fact my friend is a coeliac, we actually had our own individual afternoon tea tiers (whilst everyone else around had to share between 2) so we pretty much stuffed our faces full of delicious treats and enough tea to sink a ship! 
Then, to make ourselves feel less gulity, we took a trip across Kensington Gardens - boy that place is LOOOONG, or I'm just incredibly unfit (likely it's more the latter)! We had a lovely afternoon and the weather was just perfect! Then it was off to crash for the night, ready for a very very early morning! 

Friday: Our early morning wake-up call happened at 5:15am so that we could get our arses across London to join the queue for Wimbledon! Me and one of the girls went last year and had such a fantastic day, we decided to convince the others to join us this year! The weather could have been better (for the morning part anyway) but the sun made an appearance just as Murray came out to play! We had such a fantastic day filled with prosecco, strawberries and a picnic-can't wait for next year!

Saturday: Most of today was spent chilling out after a string of early mornings before catching the train back up North to home! Really wasn't the most fascinating day - the highlight was probably my Nando's takeaway for the train journey home (I don't have one near me so it's a novelty when I get the chance to do takeaway)!

Sunday: Today was spent catching up with my little puppies - after a few days away, I couldn't wait to get back and see them - in just a few days they have already started to change! 

I hope you all had a fab weekend too and are enjoying the week!
