Last weekend I went with my friend Abbie to Huddersfield where we met up with Sophie who is at Huddersfield University. It was so lovely to see them both again and despite the horrible weather we had a great time!
We started off with lunch at Lloyd's Bar. We were undercharged so I only had to pay £4 for a big toastie, chips and a drink; a good start to the weekend! We then walked around the shops, the only things I bought were some fairy lights from Primark and some pick and mix sweets on the market.
I was raining really heavily so we headed to Espresso Corner. I had heard from Sophie that they do the best hot chocolate. She was not lying, they are so good! I definitely recommend this place. Since we didn't fancy walking around in the rain we stayed in the cafe for quite a while browsing their good selection of magazines.
We then went to The Picturehouse, an American Bar and Grill. I loved the design of the interiors. There were old cinema seats, black and white movie photos and a glass of popcorn while we were waiting for our food. I had the Chicken Run burger which was so good. Then for dessert we all shared Cookie Monster which is described as 'a cookie dough base topped with Oreos, homemade brownie mix, served with ice cream.' Basically absolute heaven!!
After tea Abbie got the train home and me and Sophie picked up a couple of bottles of wine for an evening in. The next day Sophie and I had a lazy morning and then went to the cinema to go see Cinderella (review coming soon!)
I then got the train back home to York. It was so good to see my best friends again and to have some time off from doing work.
