Between clumps of revision, I've had a rather lovely Easter break. I've been cycling, had several coffee shop visits, visited family up North for a weekend and taken on the role of hairdresser for both my best friend & sister (no idea why I'm cutting hair all of a sudden, but it's really fun!).
Yesterday I had another break from revision, meeting the lovely Anam in Bedford for the afternoon. After a little shop for necessities (hooray I now am the owner of some very exciting treasury tags!!!!) and a little Topshop distraction, we made our way to one of Bedford's newest coffee shops; Coffee With Art.
That impressive wall of books is not wallpaper, its literally piles of books. Awesome. And they have the pretty lightbulbs with spirals of wire that I always lust after in John Lewis. The whole design of the place was amazing. The many books scattered around the room were also great, particularly for Anam who is a budding writer herself (you can read a bit of her book here). After a long coffee break, we set out to find the sun along the river.
It was so pretty. Anam picked up an ice cream as we explored the pretty part of Bedford in bloom. There is something about ice creams that makes a place a hundred times more summery. And flowers. And the sun. It was a very summery day.
And then that's me on a bridge. It was so nice to catch up and get away from revision and work. 'Coffee With Art' is also my new favourite coffee shop, I definitely reccommend it.
