Old Enough To Know Better

I should be back at uni by now. I should have been on a train just after 9am this morning. I should not be laying on my bed watching Grey's Anatomy, drinking my weight in water and nursing a hangover caused by these.

One cocktail is always going to end in tears- it's the antithesis of drinking- mixing your drinks. I'm old enough to know better than trying 5 DIFFERENT cocktails on one tray.
 Because it was (supposedly) my last night here at home, The Guy and I wandered down to our usual and favourite place to eat, drink and be merry. The Lymehurst is a hotel owned by Kevin- an MCGB who cooks steak to perfection and Andrea- the most talented pastry chef I've come across. To say we're always looked after would be an understatement which is why we keep going back.

Duck Breast with savoy cabbage (The Guy's main)
And honey glazed duck leg and salad (a starter that I had as my main)

Lemon Tart with Berry Sorbet on crushed meringue (my sweet)
Cranberry and Orange Bread and Butter pudding with Creme Anglaise (The Guy's sweet)
 A good night. Great food. Stupid hangover.

I also managed to get a few full length shots of me wearing proper clothes on and wearing make-up and looking respectable, thanks to The Guy.

Martha Jeans, Topshop
Shirt, Tesco
Blazer, New Look
Shoes, H&M
Clutch, Sacha London (concession at Dorothy Perkins)
Simple, but a favourite combination and best of all this is the kind of outfit that I'm most comfortable wearing. You'd better all have had fabulous weekends and please tell me I'm not the only one who feels they're old enough to know better?
