I’m a little hit and miss with my ‘Weekly’ Write Up posts. Sometimes I’m all over it, snapping shots of places I go and things I see. Other times I wonder if anyone has any real desire to see a photo of my new shoes on top of a suitcase. But, I got nothing else today – so here they are!
In other news, it’s my sister’s 21st birthday tomorrow, so today the family crew got together for food, drinks and laughs. We went to a bizarre and amazing restaurant called Crab & Lobster in Thirsk, near York. It had everything one could ask for from a restaurant – delicious food, chilled white wine, a man called Mutton Chops who played the banjo and an original 1940s diving suit suspended from the ceiling. I’ve never seen a place like it – it was a vintage lover’s dream, full of fur coats, antique cameras and mantle clocks showing a variety of times.
The restaurant sits on stunning, sweeping grounds. I love all the leafy archways – very Secret Garden. I’m wearing a Matalan dress, Primark cardigan and brogues, Dorothy Perkins tights and my Stolen Thunder brooch. I did have a belt on too, but the lobster soon put paid to that.
I’d definitely recommend the Crab & Lobster – it was a bit like going vintage shopping, but with excellent food and a chorus of ‘Happy Birthday To You’ from Mutton Chops. Which equals an excellent day out, obviously.
How was your week?
