Considering it is now essentially Spring, I am rather unimpressed by the weather. It is consistently cold, drizzly & grey. Where's the sunshine for pity sake!
To raise my spirits, my friend Amy came down for a visit yesterday afternoon. I haven't seen her since I left London & so it was really nice to catch up.
We headed over to The Greedy Cow Deli & I finally got to try their pulled pork burger. I was super naughty & got it topped with cheese & bacon. Is it weird to have bacon on top of pulled pork? It tasted darn good though!
I love The Greedy Cow, it's so cute & inviting.
We picked up a few cakes for after. I got a custard cream cheesecake, which was quite dense, but super yummy.
After stuffing ourselves silly, we went for a little walk around town & popped into a few of the vintage shops. Amy was determined to spend some pennies, so she ended up purchasing a little vintage gold clutch bag. I fell in love with a metal carousel horse that had been turned into a light. If I had high enough ceilings, I would have snapped it up!
Later we headed over to The Turner Gallery & saw the Maria Nepomuceno exhibition, which consisted of over-sized beads, woven straw, string & rope. You were encouraged to pop on some rather fetching blue plastic bags on your feet & play amongst it. I politely declined. We also saw the Carl Andre, Mass & Matter exhibition & got told off for touching the 'sculptures'. [yawn]
Overall it was a really nice day, despite the shoddy weather.
