A weekend in England

I was away in England this weekend drinking tea out of pretty cups and eating fancy cakes. Rachel and I have been frantically emailing each other for the past few months trying to get Leanne's hen party organized and it was finally here this weekend.
I flew over first thing on Friday morning, Leanne picked me up at Luton and we went to Milton Keynes to try on bridesmaid dresses and drink cups of tea in her old (now Rachels) living room.
We picked up Tania and we all ate waffles at the Waffle House in St Albans. Not quite so big as Milky Lane waffles, but just as delicious, warm and syrupy. 
In the morning we got ourselves dressed, gathered up the gift bags and hopped on the tube to Covent Garden.
Sixteen women sat around a table at BB Bakery for afternoon tea, eating and chattering and taking a few photos.
We watched 'Once' the musical at the Phoenix theatre and ducked in to a Salsa bar to avoid the wind and the rain and we called off the treasure hunt.
We had dinner at the Soho Bar and Kitchen before moving on to Madame Jojos for some dancing to fifties music.
On Sunday we walked around an antique and vintage fair at Alexandra Palace and then I was flying back home again.
The weekend went by really fast! I think everyone enjoyed themselves, Leanne seemed to, and I certainly did.
Now, less than two weeks until the big wedding day!
