On A Whirlwind Weekend & Two Years

This past weekend has been a bit of a whirlwind, in the best possible way. I started off Saturday morning by going for breakfast with my Mama at Bill's. Bill's really is my favourite place to go for breakfast and never fails to hit the spot whatever kind of breakfast mood I'm in, of which there can be many!

(One of my favourite photos of us.)

I then went to meet Harry to celebrate our two year anniversary. It seems crazy to me how quickly the time has gone and that we've now been together for two years. But it's also been so lovely to celebrate and I've never been happier. We went see his friends' band play at a Christmas fair (they were great) and then had some lunch there before going back to Harry's house. It felt so Christmassy around all the pretty stalls with Christmas music playing and drinking a glass of mulled wine. Mulled wine is definitely something that has suddenly grown on me. I had never been all that sure of it but recently I have to say I've really started to love it and must to agree with my friend, Kate, who described it as 'Christmas in a cup'.

Back at Harry's he gave me my present. As pictured, Hans is the fluffiest, cuddliest, cutest teddy bear I've ever owned. He's so soft and lovely to cuddle and it made me very happy to be given him! Harry and I decided just to do little presents as Christmas is so close and to go out and spend money on that instead for our anniversary. We went to this wonderful Italian restaurant. All the staff seemed to be Italian, the atmosphere was great, and there were Christmas crackers on the table; of which Harry won both, boo!

We shared a starter and I had the pasta penne pollo for my main, which was absolutely delicious. Although, for some reason I felt full really quickly and was only able to eat about a quarter of my pasta. It's so unlike me to get full so easily but the staff were great and made me up a little doggy bag which I had for lunch on Sunday! On the way back to Harry's we picked up a tub of Ben & Jerry's ice cream to eat while watching a film.

Then on Sunday we had a bit of a lazy day, watching the Graham Norton Show and talking in front of the fire until I made my way home. It really was a lovely lovely weekend and I feel very grateful for all the good things and people in my life.
