So today I'd like to tell you all about my lovely day out on Saturday. My lovely friend Lucy from uni came down from Birmingham on Friday night. We had some pizza, and crisps, and ice cream and cider and watched TV - it was so nice to just relax and have fun with a friend. I very rarely get to do it!
She is an especially lovely friend as for no reason she bought me this fantastic book! She knows I love macaroons and I don't have any good recipes for them - this book is full of them! Thank you Lucy.
Then on Saturday we headed off to the Peacock Bar in Clapham, where we had a Keynoir voucher for afternoon tea and a cupcake decorating class. When we got there they threw in a free chocolate making class too. Unfortunately the quality of the classes were quite poor. The icing tasted icky and was too soft and the chocolate making class was just putting melted chocolate in moulds. However, we had great fun and then enjoyed a lovely afternoon tea with two whole plates of sandwiches and huge yummy scones! They even refilled out tea!
Unfortunately our cupcakes didn't survive the tube or the sun and were melted and squished by the time we reached Green Park, where we sat and relaxed before Lucy had to head back up north.
It was a fantastic day, with beautiful weather, lovely food, fun and great company. If only this could be everyday! Miss you Lucy!
