Yesterday was lovely. Really lovely.
Having slept in until about half 11, I slowly got up, and then left with Cie to head into town. We were meeting the girls, Roisin, Carys and Kate, for a trip around the shops. The plan was to peruse some charity shops and find some lovely shoes for a do Cie has next week – and boy did we succeed with our intentions! Cie got a pair of expensive but beautiful Dune heels which were exactly the right level of “fierce” that we had been looking for, whilst most of us also found something in the charity shops. I bought a gorgeous straw hat for a mighty £2 (which I proceeded to wear all day), as well as a long flowery dress and an oversized jumper from NewLook with my left over Christmas money. I plan to wear this with a chunky belt and Friday’s boots!
Then we headed to The White Horse for a drink before heading home. This pub is an eclectic combination of furniture styles and light fittings, and as long as they don’t turn up the volume on the music too much then it is one of my favourite places to hang out in. Which, it turned out, is exactly what we did – we chatted and were joined by everyone’s respective other halves – all of which resulted in us heading home burger in hand at past 10pm! Quite unexpectedly late!
It is so nice to have a bunch of people in Leamington with whom I can head to the pub and relax and gossip with, along with having incredibly intelligent conversation (yeah, I know, hard to believe I could have any sort of intelligent conversation!). I really appreciate all of my gals! (and all the guys too, of course)
