This weekend has been wonderful as not only has it been a bank holiday weekend, but Ben and I have been spending time with our families. Friday was pretty low-key, we stayed in and recuperated in anticipation of our fun-filled weekend. However, I did enjoy watching the ever so hilarious Peter Kay, my stomach was hurting from all the laughing!
On Saturday we headed out to lovely Liverpool to do a spot of shopping and also to indulge in delicious Cafe Nero pots of tea and cinnamon swirls. It has been a very, very long time since our last trip into Liverpool and I forgot how fantastic it was! We discovered lots of new restaurants hidden away at the top of Liverpool One, they even had a Wagamama’s (aka my favourite restaurant ever). After exhausting ourselves shopping, we went to a local pub with Ben’s family to catch up before heading back to his parents’ house for a scrumptious meal.
For a while my family had been meaning to go to the cinema, but hadn’t quite decided on the film to see. However once we saw the Elysium trailer, we were off to the cinema in no time. And to be honest, I was captivated by the movie, the story line, the actors – everything and I was a little unsure I’d like a Sci-Fi movie.
With it being a bank holiday, on Monday we kept it quiet, just cooking, gardening and having a picnic whilst the sun set over the fields. Weekends are really a fantastic time to spend time with your family and enjoy all the little things in life; like the smell of freshly baked cookies.
