Wow what a week and a half it has been since I last posted! In fact it has been the busiest week since I can remember! Packing, seeing friends and family, my 30th birthday – phew!
This is our last week in Glasgow, in fact we leave on Sunday! We then travel up north to spend a few days with my parents before jetting off to Perth Australia on the 8th of August. You guys, it’s getting so real now!
So to catch you all up on my goings –on, I thought I would do a little Friday Favourites post, linking up with Heather over @LifeinLeggings!
Cocktail making masterclass
My parents came up at the weekend to celebrate my birthday (28th) and one of the things we had arranged was a cocktail masterclass at Hillhead Book Club in Glasgow (such an awesome bar!). We each got to make 2 cocktails at our private bar and were tutored throughout. I made an espresso martini with Patron Cafe tequila (my favourite!) and a smoky one with my favourite whisky and amaretto… mmmm!
Spending time with this bunch of crazies made it perfect though – we all left with massive smiles and a wee bit tipsy!
This restaurant in Glasgow is amazing and I cannot believe I will not have another opportunity to savour its delights! It was my birthday treat meal after our masterclass and it was incredible.
My main was Guinea Fowl breast – Dorset snails, broad beans and an onion veloute
(and that GF bread at the side was so good!)
My desert was a white chocolate bavarois – raspberry fool and pistachios
A beautiful meal that felt so special for my 30th!
The day itself!
Well how do you start your birthday (after CrossFit of course)? With pancakes and berries! (and mimosas… not pictured!)
I wanted to chill out for the day so we went for a wonder around the shops, picked up a few more bits for Australia and went out for lunch!
We had a lovely meal here – sharing the salami platter which was amazing!
For main I had the fish stew – it was really good and flavourful, passed on the GF bread but it was so thick that I didn’t even need it!
So of course you have to have a cocktail on your birthday – and I have always wanted to try out this great Gin bar in Glasgow. I went for the Rose Garden Martini – and slowly sipped the joy!
Moving and grooving
So that’s all of our belongings now with the hands of the movers – being air freighted to Australia! We decided not to take much, sell the furniture and start fresh over there. Now we have a few more days in an empty flat with 2 suitcases! Good to get that all sorted and on its way!
And finally… for the last time… we did our morning WOD at Omnipotent CrossFit
Words cannot describe what these people mean to me and what CrossFit has meant to both David and I. I can’t wait to go out for drinks tonight with these guys and celebrate the move!
And then we have the fun task of finding a new box in Australia!
Have a fab weekend and I will be checking in next week once more from Scotland before the big move!
Have you ever done a big move?
What is your favourite cocktail?
Do you like saying goodbye or would you rather sneak away?
