How We Spent the Easter Weekend 2019
Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog! I hope you all had a fantastic Easter weekend and enjoyed the sunny weather.
I had a super busy, fun packed Easter weekend and loved every second of it. So today I thought I’d share with you all what we got up to.
On Good Friday Jaz and I braved the crowds and headed down to the beach. We decided to go to Lyme Regis as it’d been a while since we’d both been there. After scouring the car park for what felt like hours we finally managed to find a space!
As expected the beach was rammed. Lyme Regis is split into two sides. On one side there’s a sandy beach and the other is a pebble beach. There was no hope of being able to sit on the sandy side unless you wanted to be right on top of someone. Still, we walked along the sand, dipped our feet into the freezing cold water and found some space on a wall to sit on. I love going to the beach. Despite the crowds, it was a really relaxing day. Of course, we grabbed a couple of ice creams and wandered around the town, looking at the colourful huts and the typical beach town shops.
On Saturday we had planned a trip to Bath! Bath is one of my favourite cities. It’s full of history, great shops, interesting places to eat and is such a pretty place. We looked in quite a few furniture shops, as they have some really unique things, to get ideas for our own place. If you follow me on Instagram you may know that we are currently waiting for our house to be built so we are slowly buying bits and pieces for it. I will be doing a full post on our house buying experience later on this year.
Jaz bought himself a t-shirt from Ted Baker he’d had his eye on for a while, and I stole his carrier bag for a picture haha. We then had lunch at Sally Lunn’s which is my favourite place to eat in Bath. If you haven’t been I highly recommend it. The buns are light and fluffy and the setting of the resturant is really pretty and interesting. I always order the sweet, strawberry jam bun while Jaz went for a savoury salmon bun.
In the basement of Sally Lunn’s is a small museum where you can buy buns to take home and learn about how it all started. I ended up buying 4 buns for me, Jaz, my mum and my sister to have for Easter Sunday breakfast. After lunch, we continued to walk around the shops and I discovered a new found love for peach iced tea!
We woke up pretty early on Easter Sunday as it was finally the day we could have chocolate for breakfast! Our family always go overboard on holidays despite every year saying we won’t. It just happens! We each had a pretty impressive tower of chocolate eggs and it was impossible to decide where to start. My mum has also always got us little presents so we each got a scratch card, which Jaz won £10 on. I also got a gift voucher for Oasis which I’m very excited to use.
As it was another warm and sunny day we spent some time in the garden. We held an Easter Dreamie hunt for our cat, Gaston, and he had a great time running and climbing to find the treats. Afterwards, to feel better about ourselves, we decided to go for a walk. We went to Ninesprings which is a little country park everyone goes to when the sun is shining. It’s a really nice area to walk around, especially when the flowers are starting to bloom and the trees are getting their leaves back. We saw some ducks and a couple of swans in the lake and then walked up a hill where we saw some cows roaming. Jaz, being from Essex, had never been that close to cows before and was fascinated by them.
After our walk, we went into a little cafe for some drinks. I ordered another peach iced tea, honestly, I feel a bit of an obsession coming along! We then met up with my gran in Kaspas for some very much needed ice cream sundaes and spent the rest of the evening playing games and relaxing. We all had a great Easter weekend!
