I am so happy right now! I had a nearly perfect day - and I just had to share it with all of you, even though I promised no more blogging for awhile.
The pastry & tea shop was amazing!!
It was more a full-blown restaurant than I had anticipated from their website.
My lunch was a steak & mushroom pie with chips! Delicious! I will definitely be going there again.
I had this great moment where I was eating my pie & chips, while reading Sherlock adventures on my Kindle, drinking amazing
tea, and a Mini-Cooper drove by. Sidebar: Why is British tea so much better?! Is it just a quality thing? I could drink a pot of that stuff every day.
As you can tell, I fell in love with the place. There was also a little shop attached where you could buy biscuits or tea usually only found in Britain -- so hard not to over spend. And there was a pub next door, which I'll check out next time.
I also spent several hours with my oldest friends -- books. I went to a couple different book stores, and I did buy a few Doctor Who items. The technical manual was published in 1983. I'm thinking if I hold onto it for awhile, it might even be worth something. (And now I have my own sonic screwdriver!!
I also found this dress at a thrift store that I want to alter for a TARDIS cosplay
It looks black because of the lighting in my room - but it is a navy blue (so more of a Classic TARDIS color). Of course, I will need someone far more clever than myself to help with the actual sewing... but I'm sure it will be fantastic. I see so much potential in this dress!
I also got a haircut and now I feel all fluffy & pretty! Now I'm just watching more Sherlock and playing on Tumblr. Ah - contentment.
