On Friday night I popped down to Salisbury to the Spanton household with Toby's sister Lucy and we had a giggle-filled drive down with Mo in tow followed by copious amounts of cuddles with my lovely boy upon arrival :)
On Saturday Toby had to work so his family and I headed to Bournemouth beach for barefoot strolls, sunshine and Honeycomb ice-cream. It was a beautiful day and it was so lovely winding down and watching the world go by on the beach. It's funny how some people (like me) were all wrapped up in scarfs and coats whereas others were quite happy sunbathing (I kid you not!) in next to nothing. Crazy people. It's also dog season at the moment and there were SO MANY PUPPIES which were adorable to watch!
The six of us went out for dinner on Saturday night and I swear I almost imploded after my red velvet cheesecake dessert. AWE. SOME. Toby and I walked/skipped/danced/bowled home and fell into bed completely exhausted!
This A6 sketchbook was £3 in TK Maxx and I swear it is the cutest sketchbook I have ever owned (Starting to make up for the lost Star Wars sketchbook I got last year which was the pride and joy of my collection...)
This morning I had a lunch date with my best friend Amy, she took me to a little place on Caledonian Rd called "Drink Shop & Do" which is a little tea/craft room. The food & tea we had was delicious and we were both really excited by some of their upcoming events- including a Lego Robot building evening and a Colour in Sneakers evening. This is definitely a place to keep an eye on as most of their evenings are free to attend!
This afternoon I popped along to Cineworld Haymarket and (thanks to my unlimited card) saw Danny Boyle's "Trance". I'd heard some mixed reviews but wanted to check it out for myself and boy, am I glad I did. I'd recommend seeing it ONLY if you're very awake as its quite a lot to keep up with but it pays off. Ill say no more but it was a brilliant film. Just a nod as well to the design and lighting, the use of the coloured windows added so much depth to a lot of the locations which gave it very much a hide-and-seek vibe. I liked it.
