As promised in my previous blog, This is how myself and Liam celebrated our 5 year anniversary together. It was so so so lovely to spend some quality time with him and have the most perfect day. Cheers to another 5 years Liam… you lucky lucky fella 😉
We started of the day with a cup of tea and jam on toast at my favourite ever tea room in Colchester called Jacquelines this is a world war 2 themed tea room. It’s so very lovely. With old war-time music and decor to match. they offer hundreds of different teas all presented in their tea menu and their menu made me smile “today’s rations” it was called.I loved the uniqueness to this tea room and definitely will be returning. I was in my element here! I really am a 90-year-old woman at heart and I am proud of it haha!
next up we visited Colchester castle, we loved looking at the old coins and especially loved looking at the prisons and reading about Mathew Hopkins it was definitely educational. Both of us had visited Colchester castle a few years ago however this was our first visit since it was renovated and we could not fault it at all. We felt we walked away from the museum knowing so much more about colchester history and Britain we were very impressed.
The third stop on our day out was to a little museum also near the castle called Hollytrees. this museum focusses on modern history and how the home was run. This was really special to me as I visited this a lot with my Nan when I was a little girl.This museum was only small however me and Liam loved looking at the old Victorian household items it did make us giggle and appreciate how lucky we are to have the technology and products we do have today. My favourite part of this museum must be the old victorian dolls house they had on display, I loved all the detail and how pretty it was. It was crazy to think that a little girl once played with it and honestly i was jelous.
By this point me and Liam were getting hungry Liam more than me (he never stops being hungry!) so we decided to have our meal and Kaspas. This restaurant has got to be one of the best ever this is because it’s a resturant completely dedicated to deserts. you can choose for so many different options however we chose to share a fudge chocolate brownie milkshake then share two deserts
one being a crushed oreo waffle and the other being a strawberry cheesecake sundae. When our deserts were delivered we knew we had made a mistake! they were HUGE! we couldn’t even finish them. But Oh me oh my t they were so good. I was in sugar heaven!
To finish of the day we wondered round some shops, there wasnt really much we wanted to buy but we needed to walk off our puddings, the walk hand in hand-made me smile lots! almost as much as i smiled eating at kaspas 😉
We had the most wonderful day spending time together and reflecting on the past 5 years. having time together just us two doesn’t happen very often but when it does its so special to me and I think Liam likes it to. Liam makes me so unbelievably happy and I am so grateful to have him in my life ❤
I hope you enjoyed reading about what we got up to, I know I have loved writitng about it. Please feel free to coment and share I would love to hear from you.
Cheerio for now,
