Totally logical in my mind.
Actually, we had given Ellie a voucher for Irregular Choice shoes for her birthday last April, the idea being that we would get to Brighton over the summer to visit the Irregular Choice shop there and buy her wedding shoes. Unfortunately, for various reasons the stars just didn't align before the big day so we postponed the trip and made it a winter getaway.
I've got a few posts lined up for the weekend's activities but I thought I would start with the sole (geddid? sole? sole?! I'll go and sit in the corner now) reason we jumped on a train at 10am on a Saturday morning (urgh) and made the 2 hour journey across the coast to the buzzing seaside town.
That reason would be this little shop buried in the North Lanes
Choccywoccydoodah's. You may have heard about this place or at least seen the television show. Choccy's is famous for doing with chocolate what most other places struggle to do with cake. It takes food sculpture to an entirely new level. Just have a look.
Julien Plumart's, a 'Boutique Salon du The', i.e it does posh afternoon tea. We were drawn to the windows by the towers of macaroons shimmering in the main window, all wrapped up in a big bow, beckoning us in further.
I think that, all things considered, we demonstrated remarkable self-restraint.
