Bristol is my home town. I wasn’t born there, I was born in Truro (Cornwall) but we moved to Bristol when I was quite young.
We went back to Bristol this weekend for a jam packed visit with family! We stayed at Joes parents and got there at about 10.30am.
We went to my brother’s house to celebrate my nephews 8th birthday, meet his new chickens and ducks and see my Auntie from Spain and cousins had come from London.
Felicity loves seeing the family and is the funniest character. She was given an early birthday present from my brother and sister-in-law and her reaction says it all! I can’t wait for her to play with it all.
My Auntie and cousins then treated me to the most amazing meal at The Mint Room, in Clifton. It was Indian cuisine but presented and tasted unbelievable. I know when I have had a good meal, when all I can do the next day is think and talk about it! Joe thinks I’m bonkers! Ha. The service was spot on, very efficient and funny. They also surprised me with a birthday dessert. I would highly recommend it if you are in Bristol.
The Sunday was just as busy, we took the 3 dogs for a walk near our old house, at Blaise Castle, while Joe’s parents took Felicity to the park. We then went for Sunday lunch at the Battleaxes in Wraxhall for roast and that was lush! We then went back to Joes parents and his whole family came for afternoon tea in the garden. Felicity was totally in her element, serving cups of tea, made from water! She then got so wet that she ended up just in her nappy. I literally love it when she just plays, happy to be outside and do her own thing. And it’s so lovely for her to be in her grandparent’s garden.
Me, Felicity and Red the dog, all came back from Bristol this morning. We left at 6.30am and we were back by 8.45. I was unpacking the car and then I looked back at Felicity and she was being sick everywhere! I think she may have inherited by horrendous travel sickness. We plodded on and went to a toddler group, which was lovely and then I’ve had the afternoon at work. Early to bed tonight I think after such a lovely weekend!
I really do feel like a lucky girl. A big surprise weekend by all my friends and then a busy weekend with all our family. Bring on our birthdays in June and Spain!
