Day 8: Day in the life

Brighton Pier

Ok, so not an average day/weekend in my life but I couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to share a few photos from a weekend away in Brighton recently with C, my boyfriend. Brighton had been on my ‘to visit again” list for a while, so the prospect of a weekend away was very exciting

It didn’t disappoint

Admittedly I had imagined it to be similar to London: busy and expensive combined with lots of smelly people on the tube.

All of this I can cope with in short bursts and whilst I enjoy visiting London I’m always happy to leave it behind and get back to Leicestershire, green fields and sheep (and the Narborough Rd)

Brighton was a different story, Brighton is the sort of place I’d like to live

Notable places we visited:

Brighton Pier

Brighton Pier

The Old Pier2p machines

C and I can never resist the lure of a 2p machine


Choccywoccydoodah – a pastry chef’s pilgramage. We found this elegant pair in the window, made entirely of chocolate. I have to say we found the inside of the shop a little disappointing


Another rather alluring shop window display from Sugardough

England At Home

England at Home this book is so on my Christmas list!


I’ve no idea where this was, a library perhaps? I love the signage made from books

la cave a fromage

La Cave A Fromage  – Quite possibly the best cheese shop I have ever visited. Here we bought a mont d’or vacherin, some white truffle honey and admired a wall covered entirely with cheese wrappers!

Seasonal flower displays at very turn

Treacle and co

And my favourite place we visited, Treacle & co. If I ever had a bakery of my own it would look like thisTreacle and cotreacle and Co

  1. It looks beautiful there! Love the photos – thanks for taking me along!

  2. Brighton is such a great place for a day trip. I particularly like visiting in December when the weekend Christmas markets are on – there’s something for everyone. Looks like you had a great day!
