Hello everyone! Apologies for doing a disappearing act - had one or two things to sort out but I'm getting there. Onwards and upwards! After pining for my two best university buddies, Claire and Georgia, I decided that it was high time that I invited them up for a few days to experience the
tedium of my town high life and glamour that my life regularly involves....Naturally, they willingly oblidged and journeyed up the motorway from their distant lands to come and experience the delights of three days in Somerset, the county of Gods.
Georgia was lucky enough to be the first to arrive which meant embracing my Father's knack for being the embarassing parent. Once he'd calmed down a little (excited Dad's are a bit like golden labradors, am I right?!), we headed off to Cheddar Gorge - the native home of Cheddar cheese. Rammed with toursists and smothered in that weird hot drizzle you get when the weather can't decide what it is doing, we took solace in a pub and attempted to get through our pints of soft drinks over strange conversations. Little rant here: Why do pubs do pints of soft drinks?! I ended up trying to down a pint of lemonade and lime like a woman possessed! Already a little knackered, we headed back to mine and my Grandma's abode where we were greeted by Claire having a cuppa with my Mamabear. A good old natter, an indian takeaway and the Olympics closing ceremony ensued before we were off to the land of nod.
Day two: our mission, if we chose to accept it, was venturing to Bristol's 'Cabot Circus' without passing out, imploding and/or dying. If you've ever shopped there before, I'm sure you understand just how much it feels like you're shopping in quick sand and if you haven't, you basically manage about two shops in double the amount of hours and wonder where the hell the time went and why you've impulsively bought so many things despite the limited amount of shops you've been in! Phew! Thankfully we had Nando's to keep us going. More than a bit tired, we headed back to my hometown so that I could introduce the ladies to the ever popular cat, Charles. After a serious bit of cooing on my behalf, we decided to get down to business and commence FAJITA NIGHT! With very full bellies and very achey feet we settled down to a girly movie after tidying the house from tip to toe.
Tuesday consisted of a chilled out day up the seafront in order for us to recover from the craziness of the day before. We headed to the trusty (read: cheap) local Spoons for some food before steadily walking to another pub for drinks with my best friend. Before we knew it, it was time to say goodbye to an awesome few days. I know they will both be reading so I would just like to say: I love you two!
