Chummy Day Date

Hello lovelies,
This is being written a few weeks in advance but yesterday, as in from the day I write this, me and chummy ventured into the London to go and see the most wonderfully talented Carrie Hope Fletcher. Me and chummy work together but we never get to just spend time together. It was nice to just get out for the day, have some much deserved chummy time. Now this is going to be a little "what me and chummy got up to" kind of post. I love documenting the little adventure that me and chummy have together.

We started the day in separate houses, me at charlies and her at her house. I woke up and just had a nibble on some Easter egg and then quickly got ready. Charlie dropped me to the station where I met chummy. We got on the train like proper little adults and had a good chit chat whilst on the train to London.

Naturally our first stop was the most perfect little bakery, yes if you know me well then you will know that I am talking about Crumbs and Doilies. They make the most delicious cakes and of course I got myself a few little treats to take home for me and charlie. I just adore that bakery. It's like a little gem in London that's tucked away but so worth finding.

After the little stop for cake we headed into Leicester square. It was nice to just take my time and explore a little more, we popped into M&M world which was just marvulous. I got a pressed penny and I was loving life. It was packed in there thought which was a slight annoyance considering I do not like people.

After venturing into M&M world chummy wanted to see if we could find a little shop called donut time, we found it but they had a little bit of a queue so we opted to try and get to the venue over purchasing more cake. Unfortunately it was raining most of the day but we weren't that bothered because rain or shine, we were getting to see Carrie.

The cadagon hall was simply the most beautiful venue and I'm a little bit in love with it, it just looks so stunning and I think it was the most perfect venue for Carrie. I was so excited and I was hooked the minute the first song started. I have always had a little bit of an obsession with the song "pure imagination" so when she opened with that, I had goosebumps and I was hooked for the rest of the show. Every song she sang, well you could just feel the passion and love that was being poured into each song. Obviously being a massive Disney nerd I was loving her little mash up of songs. I must say though, my a few of my favourites from Carrie, even though each song was sung with so much love and just sounded beautiful, well my favourites were pure imagination, lets go fly a kite and I'm not okay. When she sang those, well I was just in awe of her. How much perfection was coming out of her, the way she made those amazing songs her own, I love the original of lets go fly a kite, but good god she may have beaten that for me. The tones in her voice just takes the song to another level.

After a standing ovation for Carrie, we headed out for dinner. We had a lovely cocktail at TGI's, a really nice meal and then a little rest before we set off to go home. The journey home was pretty easy and it was just so nice to get out and about with one of the woman that make me feel so good about myself. The woman who has been someone who makes me want to better myself and has always made me think I can do pretty much anything I want.

Thank you for a perfect chummy day, it was just what I needed to get back to myself and I simply cant wait for another day like that.
