Cocktails and art

At the weekend I met up with an old friend. We hadn't seen each other for years so decided to have a long weekend catch up and ended up drinking (probably) the amount of cocktails we had missed out on in that time.

Before day-drinking the essential unbreakable rule is having a meal. We chose a fantastic little brunch spot and I tucked into eggs benedict with smoked salmon. It was delicious and I was very happy...until I saw my friends and boyfriends English breakfast come and then I was filled with food envy.

After filling up we were ready for a liquid lunch. Beginning with fruity cocktails...

...followed by ones with popping candy...

...and espresso martinis to bring us back to life towards the end haha.

Can I just say that there was an offer on in this place so the number of drinks was completely justified  and we did drink slowly over the whoollleeee day haha.

We stayed out til late hopping between the bars until curling up on the sofa and watching a film. Speaking of - the new beauty and the beast film is out - have you seen it yet? I love it.

The next day bleary eyed and sleepy we were herded into the car by my long-suffering boyfriend (haha) and headed to Yorkshire Sculpture Park to enjoy the heat wave. I love sculpture so the hangover didn't really put me off.

We wandered through the artwork and completed a loop of the grounds.

Even bumping into some friendly but hairy locals on the way.

We saw some sculptures we loved...

...and some we didn't feel as strongly about...

....these men ^^ we found very strange looking haha...

All in all, a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to do it again. Wishing you all as zen a week as this colourful cyclops.
