I love blogging. It seems to have taken over my life in the last 3 months, and I'm not sure what I even did without it. It seems to have become such a big part of my day now, and I'll never go 24 hours without reading blogs, writing blogs, taking photo's for blogs, or, one of my favourite parts, speaking to other bloggers.
There's a few girls that I've got particularly close to, and we talk ALL the time. I never realised a group chat could be so active before talking to these girls, and so we thought we'd arrange a little day out for ourselves a few weeks ago. So, yesterday we took ourselves off to Stratford for a bit of a girly day!
After a 3 hour road trip with Emma (Writing Essays with Wine) and Laura (Elelibee), reminiscing on how amazing the 90's was for pop music, we made it to Stratford and met up with Kayleigh (VeryBerryCosmo) and Mara (Mara Shares), with the first stop obviously being the Butterfly Farm! Obviously..
Butterflies are SO pretty!
Once we'd spent a fair amount of time admiring the butterflies, we decided to go and hunt out some food. Being in Stratford, we wanted to take advantage, and we managed to find a tea room with a lot of lovely character. And cake. We wanted cake.
We spent hours in here and it was really nice to just sit and chat to the girls! We chatted and giggled our way through lunch, tea and cake and we loved it! Even if Emma had a bit of a scone disaster... but we'll skip over that bit.
Places like this are so lovely! The decor in the tea room was really authentic, with wonky wooden stairs, low ceilings and the beams to match. I don't think I could ever get fed up of going for afternoon tea somewhere like this.
Can you imagine just tucking yourself away in the corner of a cute little tea room with your favourite book? Bliss!
Next up we had a walk into town, and found and had numerous selfie's with Shakespeare's birth place, much to the amusement of passers by and onlookers! We did a little bit of shopping before then heading back for another 3 hour sing a long session in the car on the way home!
I had the loveliest day with these girls, and I'd forgotten just how much I love these quaint little towns! If it wasn't so far away for me, I'd definitely be returning here more often. I mean, afternoon tea and blogging chat in the prettiest of locations is just the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon! After a long week in work, this definitely cheered me right up!
