Coffee Break

Today the Boy and I made our way into town as I'm after some flowers for my room, peonies to be precise and I'd heard Dunelm Mill had a good selection of fake flowers so was a good place to check out. I love visiting Dunelm Mill, their lovely trinket bits I could fill my bedroom with and very nearly have. 
Upon arriving the rain began to pour and we weren't in a hurry so thought we'd stop for a coffee and make the most of having nothing to do. 
Neither of us actually went for coffee in the end, I had a Coookies & Cream frappe with a slice of Millionaire Shortbread on the side, very sweet and sickly together, I don't know what I was thinking. Aaron had a Toffee Nut frappe and a giant scone with real butter and blackcurrant jam. I had to snap the miniature pot of jam, how sweet. It is reminiscent of something out of Alice in Wonderland.
I left empty handed sadly as there wasn't a peony in sight so my current floral arrangement has lived to see another day in my bedroom.
I had to take my frappe to-go as I just couldn't finish it, but Aaron helped with that on the car journey home, men are so handy for that kind of thing. 

Aaron and I both agreed that spontaneous little outings like this are always the best kind.
Hope you're having a lovely Sunday. What have you done this weekend?

  1. LOL, men are rather handy when it comes to not letting food or beverages go to waste! Those drinks and desserts look so tasty. I'm not much of a sweets person but even I have to admit those look tasty! :) I love visiting cafes on rainy days - there's something so relaxing about it :)
