Uptown Funk

Hey everyone! Hope you’re all having a lovely evening.

I went to Chester on Saturday so my other half could do his theory test. I thought I would do some holiday shopping whilst I was there.

The only part-successful shop I did was in Primark. I say part-successful because, I didnt actually buy anything holiday related. Not a single item.

I prefer the Primark in Liverpool and Warrington to Chester by miles as there is way more to choose from!

So, in Primark, I literally RAIDED the Harry Potter section.

I put quite a few bits back and just chose 2 sets of pyjamas and a top.

This is honestly, the BEST thing Primark have ever done.

I LOVE HARRY POTTER!!

There was so much to chose from. If you’re a Harry Potter fan, go and raid the stores!

I met back up with Jay with the good news that he passed his theory test and we headed for some food.

We came across this funky shop. Gino’s Gelato. You could not walk passed that without taking a double glance.

There’s nothing I love more than fresh, self made food. Especially, when the presentation is as good as this!

I had Gino’s Special Crepe – Strawberries, Bananas and Nutella.

How cool is it?!

We drove back home for me to get busy baking a GIANT jaffa cake. My Mother-in-law requested it for her birthday.

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed reading what I was up to at the weekend.

If anyone would enjoy reading cake recipes please comment below and I will share my recipe for the Jaffa Cake above.

American Afternoon Tea

Recently I went to a local restaurant for afternoon tea with my friend. We were celebrating her 21st birthday so we thought we’d go for something a bit diffefent.

The Afternoon Tea included:

  • Dirty Fries
  • Mini Bbq Ribs
  • Fried Chicken
  • Cajun Corn on the Cob
  • Milkshake
  • Donuts
  • Waffles
  • Prosecco

This was £29.95 for the two of us. I was definitely stuffed, far too much meat for me to eat in one go.

I left the fries – thought it would be bacon and cheese, instead it was pulled pork and cheese. Pulled pork is a no go for me!

Im not one for eating off the bone, but the ribs were perfect! The meat just fell off the bone.

I had such a lovely saturday afternoon with my friend. She definitely had a great birthday!

Thanks for reading guys! Hope you’re all having a great bank holiday weekend so far!

  3. My ears crack. “your ears crack?” Yes they do and everyone thinks it’s weird. Haha
  4. My favourite drink is probably a pornstar martini. A nice rosé wine would come a close 2nd.

Curry and Cocktails

So I’ve had writers block since my last post although I have a secret hidden, I cannot reveal it at this time. (I’m not pregnant though)

I have been going out for lunch and tea quite a lot recently, so this post, be warned, it’s a foodie post.

I had a nice day out with my mum at a few garden centres and we had lunch out very late in the day.

We stopped off at Minshulls in Crewe for some lunch.

I had ‘the works’ breakfast and my mum had cheese and pepper quiche with chips. It doesn’t look satisfying on the plate, but I tried a bit and it was gorgeous!

Look at the size of that doorstop toast!

Last Sunday, I had a lazy day and then washed my car with Jay. He soaked me, so we went to Costa for a Hot Chocolate to warm up. The weather wasn’t too good either.

On Thursday night, I went out for tea with a work collegue. We had a curry and some cocktails. I had a Chicken tikka as usual. So yummy! But I SO needed that curry!

I’ve been baking a couple of big cakes these past two weeks. So I will share those with you. The owl was for my old friend and the Lemon Meringue for my work colleagues.

Thanks for reading guys!
