Girls Day Out



Last Sunday Sophie and I went out for a girly lunch with my mum and sister Claire.  James and Liam had been to the Scottish Cup final on the Saturday so a girls day was most definitely in order.  We went to a beautiful little tearoom - Cafe Vanilla.


It was the first time we had visited the tearoom and when we walking in the door we could tell it was a very popular place as we had to wait 15 minutes for a table.  It was worth the wait though.  Once we were seated and we had placed our order,  I took in my surroundings and noticed the beautiful decor. 



Our sandwiches arrived, I was too hungry to take pictures of them!, and oh my word they were massive.  The bread was soft and fresh and there was plenty of filling in each, and a beautiful side salad too. How I managed to eat all of mines is beyond me but I would do it again!  I had tuna mayonnaise, my mum had chicken with cranberry sauce (real chicken pieces) and Claire had cheese and coleslaw.  Sophie had a bit of each sandwich which she enjoyed.



Then along came our cakes.  We all ordered a slice of the Victoria sponge, which was homemade, Sophie ate hers, we asked to take ours home as we were all full after a lovely lunch.  After our lunch we went to the local shopping centre for a walk around and then we headed home.  We all had such a lovely day out and I look forward to visiting Cafe Vanilla again in the future and thanks to my dad for sending us to lunch.

Here are some more pictures from our day out.
