I woke up early Saturday ready for my morning drive to Bath. Usually I leave the city Friday night and it can be a little bit of a pain as everyone seems to want to escape from the madness for the weekend. Saturday was extremely different though, there were basically no cars on the road and no road works or distractions. We got to Bristol in about two hours where I met my sister and her fiancé. Bridie (my sister) jumped into my car and Max went into Ioans (Bridie’s fiancé). The boys headed to Wales for a weekend of drinking and beach walks.
Isn’t it great when you discover a restaurant just by chance and it ends up being a new favourite? On Tuesday my sister and mum were up from Wales for our bridesmaid dress fittings, eeeeh not long left!!, and we decided that we wanted to go somewhere different for dinner. We knew we wanted it to be local and have steak so the search was on!
This weekend my parents popped by for the night to celebrate Mothers Day. There is a small, quaint Italian restaurant in Battersea Square called Melanzana and after my mum had heard my rave about it for so long, I thought we would go there.
This weekend I ventured to the Lake District with my boyfriend Max for a weekend of hiking, abseiling and a LOT of eating! Although it took us around 5 hours to get there it was well worth it. We arrived in our lovely air bnb which was part of a cottage owned by Adrian & Elizabeth. The room was perfect with our own little kitchen, homely decor and wood fire. Our wonderful hosts had prepared a table full of leaflets with walks, restaurants and activities. They even preheated our bed!!
