I don't much like going our to pubs/ clubs etc, never have - they make me feel awkward. But I do like coffee and dinner dates.
At Christmas my friend Anna was given some money and as is her way, she decided to share that good fortune and invited us out for coffee at our favorite place: 'Boscanova' in Boscombe. A weird place with a high percentage of tramps and addicts (no joke), but also pockets of creative types and organisations striving to help those with their struggles.
It is such a creative space. I love the decor, and the coffees, lattes, chai and gorgeous healthy food are delicious (especially the mushroom halloumi burger).
It is my favorite place to have coffee, but I don't go too much or else it would lose its effect on me.
Today is Valentines, and I spent some time with Anna then went shopping with my daughter to spend her Christmas vouchers (finally). We are cooking up something delicious for dinner as a treat. Tomorrow we are off to London on an adventure. Can't flippin' wait (especially as I won some 1st class train tickets a while ago which we are using so no driving).
I'm single and happy by the way. Valentines normally hacks me off but I tried to make it a positive day with fun things planned, and to see it as 'love' day. One day I'll find my Wesley but until then I am seriously content.
Lots of love to you all, me x x x
