This past weekend was one of the best I’ve had in a long time. My fave gal pals from the Central Coast came to Armidale to visit me, and whilst we are usually on a schedule (who, me?), the past couple of days were relaxed and exactly what I needed (i.e. no uni work). Anna, Sarah and Mikayla drove up on Friday and because Brianna wasn’t arriving until Saturday morning, we just hung out at home, eating cookies & banana bread, and drinking tea. Can you believe Mikayla and Anna have never seen Charlie’s Angels?! Sarah and I couldn’t, so naturally we made them watch it. But they didn’t like it! It’s still a touchy subject, so I digress…
I couldn’t resist picking up these gorgeous tulips for the weekend.
We picked Brianna up from the airport on Saturday morning and headed straight to the cafe for corn fritters, bagels and coffee. After a wander around town, the weather wasn’t the best, so we went home and played Cluedo and Monopoly, whilst mum taught the girls how to make her famous chilli jam.
a) How great are board games? It’s been so long since I’ve played Cluedo I forgot how to play. Brianna won both games, even though she had no idea what she was doing. #annoying
b) We all cheated in Monopoly, but Mikayla won.
Ivy and I had to introduce the girls to our much-loved Affas, where we enjoyed the most delicious pizzas and wine. After coffee, affogatos and panna cotta, we went home and talked well into the night (à la year 9).
I’m pretty sure William thinks he now has four girlfriends.
The weather has been absolutely delightful this past weekend (compared to the snow we got last week!), so we strolled down to the Markets in the Mall this morning for coffee and croissants. I may have eaten a ham & cheese croissant and a macadamia croissant, they were just THAT good.
After the girls left to drive home, I had big plans to get stuck into uni work but I have just been super
lazy content at home, researching accommodation in Paris and London (if anyone has suggestions, I’d love you forever) and costumes ideas for an upcoming party (cannot wait!), and helping mum bake a custard cake.
Coffee, croissants and conversation at the Markets in the Mall.
Friends are truly food for the soul, aren’t they? I seriously don’t know what I’d do without these girls (I wouldn’t have survived my first year at Loreto, that’s for sure). We’re all so different, but somehow our friendship works and I am eternally thankful.
How was your weekend?
