Is it just me, or do sunflowers make you feel joyful and happy? There’s something about their friendly faces that makes me smile. My friend Hayleigh bought me some last week and rather than let them waste away in my dark flat where no one could see them, I took them out for a day trip to Bath.
Yes – the girls did ask me what the hell I was doing, when they pulled up outside my place to pick me up. But they laughed and rolled their eyes because they know me too well and that I’d be thinking, “too many photo opportunities to be had!”
We initially planned to have a picnic, but the weather wasn’t great so we decided to go for a roast. I was recommended GPT by a friend – and I now plan to eat there EVERY Sunday.
The roast was incredible, as were the sauces – particularly the horseradish. We hadn’t booked but the staff kindly fit us in; they were very welcoming, friendly and helpful.
I don’t know about you, but I can be incredibly indecisive when it comes to food – I want all of the good stuff. We decided to chose a meat each and cut it up to share it out. We chose lamb, beef and pork belly. I highly recommend you do the same!
Post munch I persuaded the girls pose for some photos because they came dressed the same by accident and looked super cute. Friends who dress the same has become a bit of a thing in our friendship group; so much so, we’re using the hashtag! #friendswhodressthesame
At the end of the day I sent them home with a sunflower each from my bunch to remember such a great day. Big up each and every sunflower – you light lives #lifeislit
