With my house resembling a bomb-site following a house party the previous night I escaped the mayhem and headed to Cornwall.
Charlotte, my old housemate, had very kindly invited us for a weekend of TLC at her stunning house on the water.
There was nothing I could have wanted more.
Charlotte is the best hostess I know and we arrived to warm scones, cake and tea. The dream.
We spent Saturday evening playing boardgames and sipping champagne.
The bay was pretty cloudy that evening, but it didn't stop us from utilising the BBQ for dinner.
After our delicious dinner we lazed around enjoying each others company then headed up to our respective rooms. Alice and I were in my favourite room with a serious beachy theme. It's so cute.
Al can't pose normally for a photo...
The next morning Charlotte whipped up a huge stack of chocolate chip waffles. It's safe to say I did not hold back!
The other girls were fuelling up prior to their dip in the sea.
I could feel a cold coming on so I sat on the shore and played photographer whilst they frolicked in the water.
It didn't take long before they could brave the cold no more and joined me on the sand.
We returned to a house filled with amazing aromas. Whilst the lamb sizzled away we snuggled up and watched Frozen.
I couldn't remember the last time I'd had a proper Sunday roast.
I'll let the pictures do the talking..
As always Charlotte and her lovely family had gone above and beyond.
We couldn't have been more well looked after.
I left about a stone heavier, but it was totally worth it.
