What Ella did at the Weekend…

I don’t often travel, due to being busy, or for the sheer fact that travelling gives me the worst kind of anxiety. So for once, I set these annoying parts of life aside to visit my lovely welsh boy in cardiff. I travelled down (I know its not down but across didn’t look right?!) after work on friday (hello beautiful sunset and rainbows) seeing him was the best treat after possibly the most stressful week at work.

The friday night was filled with chocolate and wine, I was left in charge of picking the film to watch which resulted in watching pirana DD for about 30 minutes before realising that my film choice was pretty horrific to which we both decided I had made the wrong choice and i shouldn’t be allowed near dvds or film selections. I did warn him!

I had never been to cardiff before so Adam was my tour guide and we spent a few hours wandering around the national museum of cardiff, which I have to say was pretty awesome, I am a cheap date give me a room filled with painting and old artefacts and I am a happy lady. It was the perfect first date. After our little wander around the museum we went for pizza, I probably wouldn’t recommend the pizza hut gluten free pizza tasted of nothing, sad times! and spending a romantic meal sitting next to 12 screaming and shouting 10 year olds is where its at! lesson learn’t haha. The evening was a lot quieter spent watching horror movies, drinking more wine and more chocolate.

I hate the fact that the time we spend together is so brief aren’t long distant relationships just a little bit of a pain? but getting to spend a few days together makes me happy until I next get to see him. So on the sunday we had a lazy morning watching harry potter and chatting, before we headed back into town for me to catch the train back into london, my train journey which always feels like forever was filled with me stuffing my face with crispy m&ms and listening to Lennon and Maisy on the old head phones,  train journeys are not good for my bank balance, itunes why are you so easy to download onto my iphone? haha!

All in all it was a really lovely weekend being able to get away for a bit. It is always best when you need to sort your head out and getting to hug my boy always helps, one thing i have learn’t this weekend is that snuggles are best.

p.s yes he has a beard and yes I have made him grow it.

    In a long distance relationship with a beardy boyfriend called Adam?? Our lives are too similar!! (or just a little bit of a coincidence…?) Either way, good call on the beard! Suits him massive amounts! I always think that long distance relationships make you really cherish and appreciate the time you spend together (although I sometimes get a little jealous of people who can just go for a little walk to see their fella…)

    I'm glad you had a lovely weekend, sweet. You deserve it.

    Lennon & Maisy are my favourite singers at the moment.. I've only just been across to Cardiff too (I even blogged about it if you want to have a look), in my case it was for the open day though, sounds like you had a lovely dayxx
