Recently I've felt a little bit down. I discovered a forum where I was being discussed, or more accurately, slated. Apparently I come across as a stuck up, horrible person who thinks I'm better than everyone else. I was dumb stuck when I read it, I felt nothing for a few moments, and then I truly felt awful. Is this how people thought I was? I'm horrified that people think I'm like that, as I genuinely never in a million, trillion years think I'm better than anyone else! Its laughable as what have I done to make me think I'm better than anyone else? If I ever came across like that then I am truly shamed, as I'm just a regular girl, wanting to express my passions through the form of blogging with the hope that someone might find it mildly useful or entertaining.
And so all I wanted to do was wallow for a while- but good friends don't let that happen and so the girls came over to spend the day making me forget my troubles, and instead enjoy a lazy, silly Sunday afternoon. There was only one thing that would do, the Great British Afternoon Tea.
Greggs had recently asked if I'd like to try their latest pastries and sandwiches and so this seemed the perfect opportunity. To be honest, Greggs always reminded me of my student days as there was a shop on campus which I'd usually run in and out on the way to some lecture or other. However I was completely wrong, when you actually stop running, Greggs have some scrumptious treats for us, from fresh baked baguettes, to crispy pastries all straight from the oven on site. Nothing beats that waft of baked pastry filling the air.
Oh and not forgetting some naughty treats too.
From chorizo and mozzarella slices, to sweet chilli chicken bloomers. Everything was ready to eat- that's what we want on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Then on to my favourite section, the sweets. Mint chocolate chip cupcakes, millionaire shortbread, Tottenham cake and Rocky Road- we feasted this Sunday.
We even had popcorn. Salty of course.
I know I'm typically British in saying this, but there isn't anything that a good cup of Tea can't fix, and so over a slice (oh who am I kidding- multiple slices) of cake and mugs of tea we vetoed pity talk, and instead decided to tell our embarrassing moments of the week. This week I may have managed to trip up the escalator stairs, get my arm stuck in the tube door and after waiting 15 minutes for my coffee immediately knock it over. Still want to hang out?
Of course, as its December we soon had to put on the Christmas tune- believe it or not this is me in the middle of a rendition of 'Rockin' Robin'.
While I love always being on the go, going out for dinner, and drinking at bars, sometimes I want nothing more than to put on my cutesy Christmas Jumper and throw back my head and act silly.
If any of you have ever read or heard anything hurtful about yourself, don't let it consume you. Instead invite over the girlfriends, go buy some yummy treats and stick the kettle on.
