Well hi everybody! We’ve been a bit quiet recently as we’ve just been so very busy, but I just wanted to pop up a quick post about what was a lovely weekend, which absolutely flew by in a blur of friends, prosecco, wine and food – heaven, really! Here’s a snapshot of what I got up to:
On Friday night, we all met up for dinner and drinks at El Rincón de Rafa – a Spanish restaurant in Manchester city centre. Now, I’m not going to go on and review it, as it’s actually owned by my dad so I may come across a bit biased, but needless to say, we all love it there (at least that’s what the other girls say to my face, anyway!)
We decided on bubbles to celebrate mine and Ellen’s company, Avant PR, being shortlisted for two industry awards and four bottles later, we made our way home suitably inebriated. I saw Ellen and Kelli in the gym the next day and Laura on Sunday (more on that shortly) and everybody agreed that it was one of those nights where you don’t realise quite how tipsy you are until you get outside.
It’s been a while since we all managed to get together for dinner and we had so much fun – we did not stop laughing!
Saturday was spent at yoga, getting the car cleaned and then having a couple of old friends over for cheese and wine. Another fantastic night (that I didn’t manage to get any pictures of!)
On Sunday, Liam and I decided to check out WestFest – a celebration of local businesses in West Didsbury, which basically involved a lot of street food, drinks and music. The weather was glorious so we settled outside with prosecco and Columbian food, before bumping in to Laura and her boyfriend Miles and heading to the nearest beer garden for more drinks.
WestFest is such a great event – it’s currently on annually, but I’d definitely be an advocate for it being a more regular thing, not only is it a great opportunity to try out new places, but it also generates more money for the local economy. Win win.
How did you spend your weekend?
