Weekend Trip - Day 1

My friend Sam was 30 in June but it was while I was on holiday so I hadn't had chance to celebrate with her. So Jacqui and I planned a surprise for her - we decided we would pick her up from work at 4pm on Saturday, drive to Lytham St Annes, spend the evening there, and then go to Blackpool on the Sunday. Jacqui planned it and booked everything - I just showed up to drive!

We set off and got to Lytham at about 6pm, where it was lashing it down with rain. We were staying in the Carlton, right on the promenade, so checked in and chilled out in there for a bit. I had bought and made Sam thirty necklaces - she's big on necklaces - so she had all those to unwrap. She liked them all! Then we got changed and headed out in the rain to Greek Flame Taverna. It was really busy, but cosy. The food was really yummy, and there was loads of it. The service wasn't great, though. It just seemed to take a while. We had shared starters and a main each, and then we got the bill and headed back to the hotel for wine and cupcakes.

We went down the front and couldn't see the sea, but I wanted to get out of the car and prove we'd been on the beach. It was raining though so we didn't stay long. We got into our pyjamas in the hotel and watched rubbish TV until bedtime!

What thirty necklaces wrapped up looks like (and a copy of And she Was by Talking Heads on vinyl)
