THE PERFECT SUNDAY
On Sunday, the house made a roast dinner as a way to end the weekend and to celebrate semester one. How quickly has the time gone? Today Ellie went home for Christmas, Mads is travelling home and Katie and I are going home on Friday, leaving our cute, little house behind for nearly a month. This week I am keeping myself very busy – tomorrow I am going to watch Mabel, spending wednesday at a Christmas market and thursday I have my last lectures of the year, then Katie and I are going for food!! This weekend I am off to Birmingham to visit my sister, then drive her home for Christmas!
Who is excited for Christmas? I honestly cannot wait to get home to my friends and family. In just over 2 weeks I am off to Rome.
Yesterday morning, Sols woke me up bright and early on a Sunday to go and get a nice breakfast, which if you know me well enough… ended up being brunch. Instead of getting a traditional full english, I treated myself to an Avocado Brunch – this included ciabatta bread, avocado, tomato, chilli and bacon (if you want.)
After this we went straight into Bournemouth town to do a bit of shopping and spend time in the Christmas market. To end the perfect Sunday, we had biscuits, tea and watch Sherlock homes. What a lovely weekend! – Now time to be extremely productive before I break up for Christmas on the 14th.
TIME TO GET READY FOR CHRISTMAS!
Christmas is the happiest time of the year and it is now acceptable to start celebrating! This weekend Solly came to visit, so on the Saturday we went for a dinner at Zizzis and lots of cocktails at Slug & Lettuce.
Today is the first of all our Christmas calendars and this year I am using ‘The Book of Beauty!’ My mum bought it for me as a pre – Christmas present – I will let you know all the amazing products I get after Christmas.
Happy December the 1st!
Esquires Coffee Bournemouth
Over the past 2 days the weather has been dreadful, there has been rain non-stop and extremely cold. It gets dark very early so it feels as if the day is a lot shorter than it is but today Els, Katie and I went into Bournemouth town to go shopping and instead just went for a coffee. Katie introduced us to the cute, little cafe at the top of the town which has just recently opened. Places like this is what Bournemouth is missing!!
How is everyone enjoying November? A very miserable month. It reminds me of January!! – A no mans land month.
Bournemouth Christmas Market
It is beginning to look like Christmas!! Christmas is probably my favourite time of the year, everybody is jolly with not a care. Although November is a bit of a no mans land, it does just make me so excited for the 1st December.
On Monday night my friends and I went down to the Bournemouth market at got a warm hot chocolate and sat in the grotto. Bournemouth is so beautiful and Christmas so you will be seeing a lot more photos. I can’r wait to visit even more Christmas markets!!
Denim Jacket – ASOS & White Jumper – Primark
Yesterday I took Katie out for a belated birthday lunch because she turned 19 in August and I wasn’t able to see her on her actual birthday. I sent her a card that arrived to her in the Summer holidays saying that I would take her out for a meal as her birthday present. Tuesday was the only day we both had free to spend together so I took her to Urban Reef in Boscombe. I have never been this far down the beach before, we spend most of our time in Bournemouth. This was a cute restaurant right on the sea front where I treated her to a fatty burger. The scenery was so beautiful, we sat outside with the sun shining on us all afternoon.
The last bit of Summer sun
I want to do more things like this, not just going for lunch/diner but adventuring out of Bournemouth. I have Christchurch, South Banks and Boscombe right next to me which have some lovely picturesque places to visit, so this is going to be my goal for this year. From this weekend on I have something planned every weekend!! – Very exciting.
