So, with our clothes soaked and our hair dripping, trying desperately to stay under my tiny umbrella - bearing in mind that I'm 5'1 and he's 6'3 - we finally took refuge in a lovely riverside café, where we had a hot drink and something sweet. I love the decor of that café, it is deliciously retro and deliberately over the top, as you can see:
I had fresh rose mint tea, and frozen yoghurt with orange blossom and pomegranate seeds. Mmmm, was it delicious! And it looked pretty, as well :)
After that, we headed home as the sunshine reappeared and the flowers sparkled with jewel-like droplets of water.
I spent some time crafting, as I had bought goods from the John Lewis haberdashery section in town.
Presents? Oh yes. This scrummy yarn...
...and a weekend in Bath! Yay!
A very happy birthday girl, I was! :)
