Oh am I glad it's Friday! Even though it was only a 4 day week I feel like it has been much longer than usual and I am so glad it's the weekend at last. As you may have read tomorrow isn't quite a day off as I will be selling at a craft fair - but I have my fingers crossed that it will go well. On Sunday I have an exciting day out planned but I will tell you all about that next week.
For now I am reminiscing about a lovely weekend I had with my friend Lucy. Lucy lives far away in Solihull and so I don't see her very often. But for her birthday I bought her an afternoon tea and she kindly invited me to share it for her. I also got to see her new flat, which was very exciting.
We headed off to the beautiful Coombe Abbey for our afternoon tea...
It was such a gorgeous hotel, set in a big beautiful park, which you are free to roam!
The hotel was stunning, very gothic on the inspired by it's history as an abbey...
It's not a celebration without champagne!
Our tea was served in the beautiful greenhouse!
And it was delicious!
The only problem was that it was so hot - it was too hot to drink tea!
The rest of the weekend was spent shopping! Ikea, Primarni and many more! I was on the hunt for some new clothes to make me feel better and Lucy was so lovely and supportive - helping me find things to make me feel good! I plan to share my purchases with you in a blog soon!
And Lucy was a very good host! Yummy crumpets for breakfast - and tea in a Cath mug...
Plus my very own little pot of jam! She knows me so well!
Love Jewel xXx
