On Saturday December 2nd, Ben and I decided to go on a spontaneous trip to Clarks Village - a large shopping outlet in Street, Somerset!
It was a 40 minute-ish drive; we would have gotten there faster if other drivers decided to stick to the speed limits! But despite my road rage, we got there in one piece and enjoyed spending the day together, being festive and going crazy with all of the sales!
We arrived in the early afternoon, around 2pm. It was a bit chilly, with a cold breeze and a bit of rain in the air. Once again I forgot parking money, so Ben saved the day! We paid for 3 hours worth of parking, just in case and then we made our way around the "village". I may have spent too much money, but it was so worth it, just for the experience!
As soon as we arrived, I was in awe - everything was so beautiful and festive. It gave me such a warm and fuzzy feeling and everything became even more beautiful as it got darker and the lights really stood out!
Around 4:15pm, we had a craving for a Cornish pasty. Normally, we buy food and eat it on the go - but to have the full experience and to make the most of our day, we sat in The Cornish Bakery , tucked into our delicious food and our beverages, snugged in the warm and had a rest before going back to the car.
I tried a cheese and onion pasty - a regular one, not gluten free! (Shock horror!) and Ben had an extra large Cornish pasty - with huge chunks of medium well steak - it looked so good, I was a little bit jealous! (When we go back, I know what I'll be ordering...)
It was such an amazing and lush day. I feel so excited for Christmas now and as always, I feel so blessed to be spending it with Ben. After days like this, I feel so lucky and happy,.
Until next time, take care of yourselves and I'll see you on the next blog post. G'Bye! ✌️
