Hope you’re having a lovely evening.
On Thursday i went out for tea with a very old friend of mine. I have known her since we were 3/4 years old.
We decided to have a major catch up as we haven’t seen each other for about 6 years now! Literally 6 years to date since we left school. Crazy!
I met her at my new local restaurant Wildwood for some tea and cocktails. We had both never been to this restaurant before so I wanted to see what it was like, especially with 30% off!
Of course the first thing I did was get a cocktail! Sex on the beach.
We decided to share a starter as I was being a piggy! Mozzarella garlic bread with caramelised onions. Lovely!
I was deciding what to eat ALL day! Literally. So I was adamant I was having Chicken with Gorgonzola Sauce and Gratinated potatoes.
I chose that, but, no potatoes. I really wanted something different as I hate having chips, I’m not a chip lover.
When it arrived I was disappointed. The Chicken was fried. I would never think anywhere would sell fried chicken in a restaurant unless specified, so I was totally gutted!
The chicken was crisp and full of oil. The Gorgonzola sauce wasn’t very flavoured, nor much of it. Too much rocket leaves and a tiny pot of chips.
I hate writing negative comments about food but this really was disappointing. I may go back and try something else sometime.
Anyway, I had a great catch up!
Thanks for reading guys!

On June 16th I held a cake sale in aid of Alzheimers society. If you have been following me for a year already you’d know that I also did one in 2016.
In 2016 I raised £62 through selling Cupcakes at work. I find that it’s harder to sell outside of work as people think you pester them.
This year I decided to make large cakes and sell a piece at a time. A lot of the men love cake so they managed to get rid of it haha. Usually there would be a lot more staff in but on that day there wasn’t.
I created a game for everyone to join in for 50p a go. It was a hit! The game was called “guess how many sprinkles” and I picked a number at random. Everyone had their guesses and I announced the winner the following Monday.
Below are the cakes etc. that I created for the bake sale.
Lemon Meringue Cupcakes
Caramel Rolo Brownies
Chocolate Orange Cake
The majority of the cakes went like a flash, leaving me with several pieces left which I sold to my nan and my boyfriend haha.
After adding up how much I raised I got a grand total of £170.81!! I’m so proud of this amount and grateful to everyone who donated. I totally smashed last year’s amount!
Thank you for reading guys!
