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:
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 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 – 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!
Lunch at Bread and Milk
Seasonal flower displays at very turn
And my favourite place we visited, Treacle & co. If I ever had a bakery of my own it would look like this
