A Delicious Meal and a Party in York

Isn’t it always the case that, when you have lots to write about, you don’t really have the time to write about it? That’s how it’s been for me this past week. I had a splendid week last week, and took some nice photographs and just haven’t had the time to share. Until now.

I’ll start on Wednesday, because prior to that it was mostly school run, work, dinner, school run etc, etc, etc. Wednesday though, I was down in York for a day in the office. The office was unusually bustling, which always makes for a more pleasant day. I was excited though because me and the chap had a table booked at one of our favourite haunts, The Cosy Club, for dinner. Our friend’s S&S had bought us a voucher for the Cosy Club for Christmas. It’s a mark of how busy the first couple of months of the year have been, that we only got to use it in the middle of February.

Just such a warm and welcoming place

It didn’t disappoint, it was lovely and chilled in there and we enjoyed an overdue catch up over delicious food. I devoured a mushroom risotto, with a side of Halloumi fries. If there’s Halloumi fries on the menu, I never can resist. The chap was all about the burger, as usual. It was nice to get out and meet up, it felt a bit like some normality was returning.

The rest of the week passed by unremarkably, until Friday. That’s when I was heading back down to York to go to a party with the chap. Not only was I excited by the party, but I was doubly excited to be getting to wear the skirt that the chap had bought me for Christmas.

Shoes – Irregular Choice, skirt – Bought in a gothic shop in Whitby, Top – Next via Vinted, Belt – Gift from Mum years ago, bag (on the bar) – Loungefly (gift from the chap)

Finally, I get to show you what I’d picked at that Goth shop in Whitby back in November. I didn’t think it would be February before it would get an outing. I paired it with a Next top that I bought for a song on Vinted, my trusty Irregular Choice shoes and the bag that the Chap had bought me for Valentines day. I definitely feel like I’m embracing a bit of a dark phase.

The evening was great. The chap met me at the train station and we grabbed burgers from Burger King. Classy, I know, but I’d left home for the train straight after work without any time to eat, and I knew there wouldn’t be food at the party. Then we walked across town, and I was shocked at how high the river Ouse was from the recent floods.

Catching up with Mrs. B

At the party, I was able to catch up with so many people I hadn’t seen in a long time (and some of the chap’s work colleagues who I’d never met before). The time just flew. Before long I was heading for the last train home. I was totally amazed at the fact that Transpennine express hadn’t left me stranded in York, like they’d done so many times before. The stars were obviously aligned in my favour.

The next morning, I was up bright and early. Little Miss and I were off to have long overdue haircuts. Thankfully, she quite likes having short hair, so was happy to go back to a chin length bob. For me, as much as I’ve loved my most recent hairstyle, the fringe growing down into my eyes has been irritating. So, I went even shorter, and I absolutely love it. One should never underestimate the joy of not having hair in your eyes.

Later in the afternoon, we pottered into town. I bought Little Miss a new dress, and she used her pocket money on a new mermaid dolly. At her request, we finished the day in McDonalds, which I totally regretted, but at least little Miss had enjoyed herself.

Sunday, the sun was out and there was a distinct spring like feel in the air. It prompted me to get some household chores done. Finally, I built the firepit I bought at the end of last summer, amongst other boring bits. Then, I settled down with a nice roast dinner, and enjoyed a moment of peace before the dawn of a new week.

  1. Love the look of your dining destination. Very elegant…as is your outfit choice!
    I occasionally try and go for the grown-out fringe look but never get that far, as it irritates me too. I like a short, retro fringe too. xx

  2. Sounds like you’ve had a memorable week, Louise! I love the look of The Cosy Club, and that party looks like lots of fun. It’s always nice to able to catch up with friends, isn’t it? Your outfit was an absolute stunner, and I adore your new, even shorter, hairdo! xxx

  3. I absolutely love this glam Goth look on you, Louise! Short hair looks incredible on you and how lovely that Little Miss enjoys hers being short, too! xxx
