Good evening beautiful souls,
Today I finally had a day off after working 13 days in a row. It’s been a long time since I just had a nice day out and so Jessica and I decided to go to Newcastle. After a relaxed breakfast of avocado on toast and a cuppa green tea with ginger, we got ready and hopped on the train.
The sun was out and it was a beautiful mild day as we set out to complete our to do list; return shoes, stock up in Lush, buy a new cafetiere, purchase make-up and douse ourselves in divine perfumes we can’t afford haha (we discovered a new favourite – Gucci Bloom Aqua Di Fiori – it’s amazing – has anyone tried it?!)
Once we’d ticked everything off our list we went to Olive & Bean for a spot of lunch. We ordered a cafetiere each and I got the olive, hummus and sun dried tomato sandwich whilst Jessica ordered a prawn salad. The food was really nice and the coffee had good flavour too, my only wish is that they had a few more vegan options on their large menu and that they decanted the cafetiere because the longer it stands it over extracts the coffee and becomes bitter. But it was still nice.
We then debated over which film to see at the cinema and decided on Tomb Raider over Peter Rabbit which was really good. I definitely recommend it and I hope to see follow ups!
The only downside of our trip to Newcastle is that I didn’t time it properly and so we didn’t get back to Durham in time for me to go home and get my yoga gear! I really need to make a better effort to start going to yoga again.
Anyway now we’re sitting in the Library having a pint as I write this blog post and wait to meet my friend Amy for a drink at 9pm.
All in all it’s been a great day off and I oy wish I had another one tomorrow!
I hope you have all had a lovely Wednesday!
