The rest of the week has been fairly uneventful and then it was the end of school on Friday! So that was good and then I went to town with my sister, Christy and my friends, Abi and Gabi. We met up with Paddy and went to Cow (vintage shop) and shopped, then we went to eat at URBAN PIE! You may have seen my previous post on all things related to 'urban' and I can assure you, Urban Pie was definitely up there. I opted for the Angus Steak pie which was so lovely and succulent - apologies for getting all foodie and pretentious on you, but there's no better way to describe it! - as well as mash and lashings of gravy, all in a lovely box! It is generally just the loveliest place, with half price pies on Mondays to Fridays, after 5 pm. The atmosphere is lovely and I love it!
Anyway, afterwards, we went to do some more shopping and then got a lift to Abi's. Originally, Paddy and Gabi couldn't sleep over, but then the Sleepover Gods were finally on our side and they both did, as did Leo! We all chatted and generally joked around, which was fun. Then the boys went to sleep in the spare room and we planned to wake up at 5:45 am for a morning "jog" - this wasn't my idea, but it was fun anyway!
So with only a few hours sleep, we all chatted and then decided to take Sophie, the dog, for a walk as well. It was still pretty cold and raining slightly, but we just went and failed at playing frisbee. Then we walked back and ate lots of cereal, then sat around and watched some trashy television. Then we got changed and went for another walk, even though it was raining and then went back for tea, toast and croissants. Then we made decorations and chilled, until it was time to go home! Really nice start to the holidays, so yeah it was really good :)
This is me on the outside patio eating area of Urban Pie! I'm wearing:
Gap top - hand me down, borrowed cardigan, skirt - Urban Outfitters sale, Doc Marten boots - given to me!
Anyway, I'll have a better outfit picture post later, but right now, I'm eating some Frosties and chilling out. I checked out a book from the library, High Fidelity, by Nick Hornby. I read the blurb and it looks pretty good. Family came around today and we had a really nice day, so that was nice. Then seeing some family friends tomorrow, so that should be good too! Then the rest of this holiday will comprise of trying to revise and chilling out, I reckon. I just can't wait until the exams are over! Anyway, I'll try and post again in the next few days. Hope everyone has a great holiday and weekend. Happy blogging!
P.S. How much does everyone love Madonna and "Like A Prayer"?! I completely love this song and we were all singing to the Glee version last night, it's such a great song. It's currently on repeat and it's such a good song! (Although, I am trying to ignore the various innuendos which are associated with this song.. Boys are so immature.) Still, I love Madonna and this song!
