Bank Holiday, May 4th

Wellies - Check, Dog - Check, Nightie - Check
Wasn't Bank Holiday great? 

I normally spend my day off not getting dressed out of my pjs until I really have to and this is exactly what I did this Bank Holiday Monday. I literally threw my wellies on whilst still wearing my nightie and my scruffy hair and enjoyed a cup of tea whilst watching the ducklings skate across the pond catching flies with my boyfriend. We made breakfast (grilled cheese on toast with bacon and scrambled eggs) at a lazy 13:30pm and enjoyed having the day off in the British sunshine.

I had a jam packed weekend catching up with friends who I haven't seen for a while. We went to TGI Fridays which was amazing. The food in there is incredible. Jack Daniels chicken, nom. I enjoyed a couple of whiskey inspired cocktails to carry on the theme; Cherry Stag (Jim Beam Black Cherry infused bourbon shaken with Luxardo Amaretto, BOLS cherry brandy and a dash of lemon juice) and a Lynchburg Lemonade (Jack Daniel’s®, BOLS Triple Sec, sweet & sour and Schweppes® Lemonade).

I was not aware of the Birthday routine at TGI's... At the end of the meal I had to stand up in front of the whole packed restaurant and shout "Hello, my name is Charlotte and it's my Birthday" then the staff sing a song. I'm not a loud person, in fact I hate standing in front of big groups of people but I think I deafened the room, maybe it was the cocktails. Our waitress made us some inflatable swords and we had a sword fight in the car park.

The following day we had a 9 hour pub drinkathon in my local town; Ashby de la Zouch. Starting at 3pm and ending with some live music in a pub up the road. Since my health kick I've saved drinking for special occasions so it was nice to let my hair down.

The rest of the weekend was relaxing. Our garden is really starting to transform now and it is beautiful to see.

I hope you all got a well deserved rest this Bank Holiday!
