With another bank holiday (we love May!), when the recently expatriated (to Northern Ireland) Holloways (Peter, Sandra and Hannah) returned to Southport for the weekend, to see Alexandra and to catch up with friends, we thought we would cease the opportunity to see them all. It was a flying visit, but we managed to cram in lot!
With ice cream, BBQ, cafe lunch, McDonalds (not Stuart, obviously), and a fancy dinner cooked by Alexandra, it feels like all we’ve done the past couple of days is drive and eat! Which is a pretty good way to spend a bank holiday (except the driving part). We drove back early in the morning on Monday, and also took Tues (today) off as holiday to recuperate. Monday evening Stuartgot out the Wagamama cook book and made delicious chicken udon soup!
Continuing the foodie theme, today the two of us went on a lunch date to Zizzi (did you know you could trade £10 of Tesco club card vouchers for £40 of restaurant vouchers? Do it!) and spent the rest of the afternoon baking together. Very quaint. We made home made pop tarts! They haven’t been toaster tested yet, but straight from the oven they’re delicious!
